A Republican, who is currently a Whitley County Council member, today announced his bid to win the Indiana 3rd District U.S. Congress seat as a Libertarian.
This begins Scott Wise’s America First Campaign which is based on 3 planks:
1). Put America First: America deserves a government that addresses our most pressing concerns directly. We must change the “Business as Usual” mentality of our government, especially after 9/11 and the newly understood realities of the world we live in.
2). Cut the Fat: The overwhelming size and waste in our bloated Federal government is suffocating us. We should strive for negative growth in the Federal budget for the next 10 years.
3). Control Immigration: America needs orderly, enforced immigration and secure borders.
“Washington is out of touch with the American people. It is a sad state of affairs when the best interests of the American people rank behind re-election concerns and party loyalty,” said Wise. Wise seeks to build a bi-partisan coalition in the House of Representatives focused on the best interests of the country, its people, and its future.
Wise is 38 years old. He is a lifelong resident of the 3rd district having lived or worked in Whitley, Noble, Lagrange, Elkhart and Kosciusko counties.
He graduated from Westview High School in 1985, and from Indiana University – South Bend in 1993, where his studies included public affairs and foreign relations.
Scott has been involved in his community by coaching boys ½ pint baseball and kindergarten soccer, he is a former board member of the Columbia City Area Chamber of Commerce where he helped develop a team that started a community leadership training program in Whitley County. He currently serves on the Whitley County Council as a Republican and has worked hard for the local Republican Party in fundraisers and events.
“The Republican Party talks a good game,” says Wise, “but its record is far from fiscally conservative, and they do not seem to act responsibly on the pressing issues of the day. It is time for a third party to stand up and demand the American people’s place at the table, and the Libertarian Party of Indiana is poised to do just that.”
