Rotary Club welcomes governor to Plainfield



“My dad told me that no matter what was on the door he was just a salesmen,” Pence said. “And I am a lot like my dad. I’m a salesman. My job is to sell Indiana.”

He challenged the club members to make an investment in their community by becoming salesmen. He said there are four factors that need to take place to continue the growth in the state. Those factors are: fiscal stability, keeping tax levels appropriate, investing in infrastructure, and making sure education works for all students.

“We need to make sure our schools work for all our kids by taking historic step toward making career and technical education a priority in every high school in Indiana,” Pence said. “By addressing the skills gap that exists in our state, this General Assembly has put workforce development at the center of economic development in Indiana.”

One way he wants to develop a better educational process is by creating regional works councils to start a dialog about what is going on in the high schools in their area.

“I believe all work is honorable as long as it’s honest,” he said. “Did you know that machinists can make more than $100,000 a year? There are great incomes out there and great jobs out there.”

“Indiana is also the center of innovation,” he said. “Let’s create pathways for more companies to come here.”

He encouraged every person in the audience to become greater salesmen for the state.

“You are the best salesmen we have for Indiana,” Pence said. “Every opportunity you get to tell people our story. Tell them how good it is to run a business in Indiana. You can go back to your offices and e-mail a client and tell them how great it is to live and work in Plainfield.”

He said by challenging Indiana’s business men and women to actively promoting the state, “We’ll see Indiana become strong again.”
