As your State Senator, Randy will go all out to see that our state government completes the Hoosier Heartland Highway. Every county in the state offers tax abatements and incentives to attract businesses to their communities. In order to win that competition, the counties in District 18 have to stand out. The single best method at our disposal right now is to build the road as planned through the district. If manufacturers can get their goods to market faster, they'll be more likely to locate here. Randy will partner with all local economic development authorities to attract businesses to our communities and fight to finish the Hoosier Heartland Highway.

-In meetings with local officials, economic development people, and citizens, two things are apparent: that our district needs new jobs, and that the Hoosier Heartland Corridor is the number one way to make that happen. Manufacturers want fast and efficient ways to get their goods to market, and factories, distributions centers, and other employers are investing in communities that provide access to interstates. Tom Weatherwax's work in speeding the completion of the Hoosier Heartland is commendable, because that highway will help us compete with other communities for new jobs. If elected, I will fight to ensure that the state lives up to the timeline it has promised us. We simply can't afford to delay construction any longer.
