House District 97, This Guy In the Creepy Looking Picture Wants to Represent You
If you live in Indiana House District 97, you are currently receiving excellent representation by one of the best in the Indiana House, Mary Ann Sullivan. That doesn't stop the upstart above from trying to unseat her.
GOP candidate Wes Robinson thinks that latching on to this "kill the bill" tea party vitriol will somehow carry him through. Frankly, this is a SCARY SCARY website with a scary scary URL (www.indianasaysno.com) that he has set up to try to raise cash off the issue.
Besides the absurdity of trying to make health care reform a state issue, Robinson clearly needs some schooling in the political staging department. I mean, this black and white picture was THE WRONG CHOICE to use in web banner. Combine that with the red scary looking banner, and you get a scary looking guy in a scary looking picture. It could be scary enough to frighten children.
Sullivan also has a Democratic opponent, Kristopher Owens, who is a work colleague of mine. I cannot tell you why Owens is running, honestly, when Mary Ann Sullivan is one of the most independent thinking legislators in the Indiana House. District 97 has no reason to look to anyone else other than the incumbent for innovative and excellent leadership. While we disagree on some issues, I can tell you that Mary Ann Sullivan is one of the people that should make you proud of what state government can do.
