Last week, George publicly announced his candidacy at the Indiana Statehouse.
INDIANA (Indianapolis) - On March 8, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Dr. George Wolfe, Professor Emeritus at Ball State University, publicly announced his candidacy for Secretary of State in the 2018 November election. The event took place at the Indiana Statehouse.
During his 32 years of teaching at the university, Professor Wolfe served as Director of the Ball State University Center for Peace and Conflict Studies from 2002 to 2006, and he was the center's Outreach Coordinator from 2006 to 2014.
Dr. Wolfe has articulated a plan to end gerrymandering and voter suppression tactics in the state of Indiana, dramatically increase voter participation, establish election-day as a state-wide holiday, provide same-day voter registration, expand early voting opportunities, and take redistricting out of the hands of politicians by establishing a nonpartisan citizen's redistricting commission. He also pledges to fight against scams that target senior citizens, and to legally challenge legislation that allows businesses to discriminate against Hoosiers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.
George will pressure lawmakers to pass a hate crimes bill and provide more tax incentives to businesses that make use of solar, wind, and other green energy sources. He believes public colleges and universities in Indiana should offer in-state tuition to DACA students. Furthermore, he supports raising the minimum wage and rewarding businesses that pay higher than minimum wage.
George will preserve and promote preventative health care initiatives such as free vaccines and yearly wellness exams, and he supports the legalization of medical marijuana. He will provide support for businesses that help young working parents with the cost of child daycare, and pressure lawmakers to provide more support for child welfare agencies due to the opioid drug crisis. He will also institute an educational program on the U.S. Constitution for Hoosier citizens, and insist on de-escalation training for community police.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018. You can learn more about Dr. Wolfe and his plan for Indiana by visiting WolfeForIndiana.com.
Good afternoon. I am here to announce today my candidacy for the office of Secretary of State in our great state of Indiana. People ask me: â€œWhy am I running?â€ There are three sets of reasons why I'm running.
First I want to bring the values of the Green Party to the office of Secretary of State. These values constitute the 4 pillars of the Green Party, which are Social Justice, Ecological Wisdom, Grassroots Democracy, and Nonviolence. Indiana politics needs a new positive vision and a new consciousness. The American people are tired of the negative, contentious rhetoric that is dominating the political arena. They are tried of politicians and pundits playing the blame game. They want politicians to be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.
Secondly, there are serious voting issues in our state that need to be addressed. We need to dramatically increase voter participation across all age, gender, ethnic, religious and secular demographic groups. Election day should be a statewide holiday so people have ample time to get to the polls and cast their ballot. More needs to be done to facilitate voter registration and expand early voting opportunities. We must eliminate obstacles to voting and end voter suppression. And finally we have to end the corrupt political practice of gerrymandering. As your Secretary of State, I will work to establish a nonpartisan citizens redistricting commission.
Redistricting should not be in the hands of politicians! Why? Because both Democrat and Republican parties have, at one time or another, been guilty of gerrymandering.
It's time for us Hoosiers to re-claim and re-energize our democracy!
Only a Secretary of State from outside the two major political parties can succeed at re-establishing fairness to our electoral process. Politicians within the two major parties have political debts to pay, both to their political colleagues, the political power structure, and to wealthy donors and corporations. Green Party candidates on the other hand, strive to make big change without big money. We don't take large donations from companies, or billionaires. We can vote our conscience, not our bankroll.
