I am independent because the issues grab my attention, ignite my passion and earn my vote. Although I have never been one that likes being labeled and I prefer to think for myself, I enjoy working with others. Therefore, I am super exited about the opportunity to build Independent Voices of Indiana. Now, more than ever, it is time for independents to have a seat at democracy’s table and to let their collective voices be heard. I look forward to attending the upcoming conference in New York City so that I can connect with other independents and I can learn how to be an effective leader in my community.
