Ninth District Democratic Party Chair’s Statement on State of the State Address
NEW ALBANY, January 19, 2021 – The Indiana Ninth Congressional District Democratic Party Chair Adam Dickey released the following tonight’s State of the State Address by Governor Holcomb:
“Tonight, Governor Holcomb played the part of wizard painting a fanciful picture of Indiana. The truth is there is little of it in the reality behind the curtain. Our state remains in the grips of a pandemic that could have been made better had the governor taken firmer action to control it. He refuses to acknowledge that Indiana is losing ‘good jobs’ while continuing to peddle old policies as if they were innovative new proposals. Perhaps most fundamentally, he has failed to keep his word to educators across our state – individuals who have gone to extraordinary measures to teach our children during the pandemic – by failing to address teacher pay in his legislative proposals. Hoosiers want a governor they can trust, not another smoke and mirror show.”
