Indianapolis Democratic Candidate will challenge incumbent Aaron Freeman in District 32
Indianapolis, IN – (February 5, 2020) – Indianapolis Democratic candidate Belinda Drake has announced that she withdrew her candidacy for Indiana House District 89 and filed to run for Indiana Senate District 32. She will challenge incumbent Aaron Freeman for the seat which includes precincts on the east and south sides of Indianapolis, including precincts in Warren, Franklin, Perry, and Center townships.
“Our communities need someone fighting for them in our general assembly, fighting for strong public education for our kids, fighting for a fair living wage for our families and I am ready to do just that,” stated Drake. Originally drafted for the House by 25 Women for 2020, an Indiana based organization dedicated to electing women to the general assembly, Drake did not make this decision lightly.
“At the end of the day, it is about doing what is best for the constituency and making sure that our State Assembly truly represents, and protects, the will of all Hoosiers,” Belinda explained. “We must come together as a community, as activists, and as leaders to show that when we work together, we are stronger, and better able to fight for what is needed to help Hoosiers thrive. From increasing education funding, the legalization of marijuana, or for another support mechanism, I will serve my communities with a bold and inclusive vision that will bring positive change and progress for all Hoosiers.”
