U.S. REPRESENTATIVE (Distrist 4)
David Sanders Ñ D
David Sanders is a candidate for the office of U.S. Representative for the 4th Congressional District of Indiana, because he wishes to bring ethics to Washington and jobs to Indiana. David Sanders understands the frustration that many people feel with government and listens to their concerns. Fiscal responsibility, true public service, protection for Constitutional liberties, and respect for veterans are the cornerstones of his philosophy.
Many of the issues that face us as a society, such as affordable healthcare, climate change, energy choices, environmental challenges, or defense against weapons of mass destruction have a scientific or technological foundation. David Sanders is an accomplished scientist and therefore possesses a first-hand understanding of these issues. He believes in the value of research in both solving problems and providing the engine for economic progress.
He is a devoted father, community leader, long-term resident of the 4th District, and associate professor of biological sciences at Purdue University.
