Ellspermann makes pit stop in Avon

(Continued)

AVON —

“Richard Mourdock is a great servant leader, and Indiana needs Richard Mourdock in the United States Senate,” Ellspermann said.

She said she’s looking forward to the future and to taking on new challenges.

“We’ve had a busy two years in the state house,” she said. “I’m from farm country and we call that making hay. We’ve made a lot of hay. We need to be making sure we have an agricultural industry for the future. That 25 billion is extremely important to Indiana. I’ve watched how main streets have become leaner on businesses and our young people have been lost to larger urban and suburban areas. So my personal passion is to dig in and make sure we have a rural Indiana that’s as successful as our urban areas.”

Ellspermann said learning the needs of Indiana’s 92 counties is my biggest upcoming challenge. Her priority, she said would be “understanding northern Indiana as well as I understand southern Indiana, like the back of my hand, and really get that level of comfort with every county so you know we are doing and creating and supporting the needs and programs of the entire state.”

She said Indiana is headed in the right direction but added that there’s more to be done.

“It’s important that we remain fresh, committed to finishing the job,” she said. “We’re not representing just Republicans, we’re representing the entire state and want to make decisions that are in the best interest of all Hoosiers so we need to be talking with everyone.”

Ellspermann resides in Ferdinand with her husband, Jim Mehling. They have a blended family of four daughters.
