(EDITOR’S NOTE: Last week, we featured responses to these same questions from Democrat candidate David Kolbe and Independent candidate Michael Stinfer who are seeking the District 22 House of Representative seat (see related). Republican candidate Curt Nisly replied to the questions this morning. These are his responses.)
What has been the response to your platform?
Curt Nisly – “Free people limit government” is the message that I took to the voters in the 22nd District when I campaigned door to door in each precinct this winter and spring. I campaigned for parental rights and local control of education, the right for Hoosiers to define marriage in the constitution, gun owners’ rights, and the right for church outreach ministries to be free from government micromanaging. On May 6, I was humbled and grateful to overwhelmingly earn the Republican nomination for District 22.
Are there any particular issues you’d like to stress as part of your campaign?
Nisly – The issues I wish to highlight for the fall campaign include the right to life; we must not waver in our resolve to defend unborn Hoosiers. I will stand up for Indiana taxpayers by remembering that every dollar spent on a government program must first be taken involuntarily from someone else. I will remain steadfast in backing the rights of Hoosier gun owners. Finally, I will work to restore Indiana’s state sovereignty in areas where the federal government has reached over its constitutional limits.
If elected, what would be your first move?
Nisly – This district has a very diverse economy, including the orthopedic industry, RV manufacturing, many forms of agriculture, and a lot of tourism. As your next State Representative from District 22, I will begin this role by reaching out to establish lines of communication throughout the district. My objective will be to listen respectfully to all constituents and to represent the entire district.
