Debbie Driskell’s response to the outside special interests’ negative, untrue attack campaign.

Thursday Morning

Dear Voter:

To date, I have worked hard to run a positive campaign on local issues that I believe are vital to the success of Fishers residents.

This morning, I received a very negative mailer from a downtown Indianapolis PAC accusing me of being less than a Republican because I have broad support of our community.

First of all, the attack piece from a downtown Indianapolis PAC is inaccurate. I’m a native of Fishers and a life-long Republican with a proven track record in this community. Secondly, I guess my endorsements from Indiana Family Action, Indiana Right to Life, our local firefighters, our local classroom teachers, and others have my opponent’s supporters worried.

My record is well known to local voters. I have worked for over 20 years as the township trustee to deliver frugal, efficient, and effective local government. Nevertheless, downtown Indianapolis interests feel they know better than local residents what’s best for us.

I have always respected my oath of office, to represent ALL of the people of the district and to uphold the Constitution of the State of Indiana which is very clear, “that no citizen or class of citizens, privileges or immunities, which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens.” That means simply that I will not provide favor to any one person or group over any other.

I do not like or want negative campaigning. I see my role as a bridge builder. I will work hard to represent THIS district and not special interests from elsewhere. I want to hear everyone’s best ideas to find the best solutions to the challenges confronting us.

My head and my heart are here in this district – not with downtown Indianapolis interests or out-of-staters.

And, that is where I will stay.

I respectfully ask for your vote on May 8,

Debbie Driskell
