An Honest Leader Who Represents Our Conservative Values | Senator Merritt for Indiana

I am honored to have the opportunity to represent Hoosiers in State Senate District 31, which covers portions of Marion and Hamilton Counties.

As a lifelong resident who has lived, helped run the family business and raised our children in Indiana, I am committed to creating a better and safer state for Hoosiers. Through partnerships with strong conservative Governors such as Mitch Daniels, Mike Pence, and Eric Holcomb, I have worked to improve the state’s economy, reduce spending and balance the budget, keep taxes low, and protect our conservative Indiana values including the right to life and our Second Amendment freedoms.

Recently I decided to lead the charge in Indiana against the opioid epidemic, which is destroying families and communities throughout our state. I have made it my mission to tackle this crisis and stop the tragic deaths and broken families caused by addiction and overdose. I am focused on addressing this issue by enacting harsher punishments on drug dealers, developing better prevention for our young people to say no, treatment plans to help those who need to recover and prevent more Hoosiers from becoming addicted.

Working together and, with your support, we will keep Indiana moving forward.
