I was born a Republican and remember shaking hands with Wendel Wilkie in 1940 when he was a candidate for president.
First of all, I do not feel I can support Mike Pence for governor, as I do not agree with his goody-two-shoes thoughts on Planned Parenthood, as I know of many women who have been helped by this group.
Then there are questions about whether he will close the veterans home in West Lafayette, saying that it will save money. Think about the 300 to 400 vets that would be put into the streets with no place to live.
This is the same Republican thinking that closed Knighstown Home for veterans children, which was giving children a chance to get a good education and when they graduated, a college scholarship.
I do not know for a fact that Mr. Gregg has no plans to close either Planned Parenthood or the state veterans home. By the same token, Mr. Gregg has plans to put veterans to work.
If Mr. Mourdock would have had his way on the closing of Chrysler, then by now Cummins would be closing down Walesboro again.
Only by the efforts of Sen. Lugar and Rep. Donnelly was Chrysler able to survive.
On top of all this, Donnelly introduced and it was passed to get fast tracking on veterans claims, and this has helped vets get their benefits sooner.
Last but not least, I am backing Tony London for county commissioner as I feel he is the most qualified for the position.
