Todd Young announces candidacy PDF Print E-mail

    Recently, Marine Veteran and current Orange County Deputy Prosecutor Todd Young filed his official candidacy forms to run for US Congress in Indiana’s Ninth Congressional District. He immediately embarked on a “Reclaiming Our Congress” Tour to highlight the needs of a district that has been misrepresented in Washington for far too long.
    Young has been campaigning for the Ninth District seat since January of last year. In that time, he has contacted thousands of voters across the district to hear their concerns; set new fundraising records for a Republican challenger in the district; and earned the public support of nearly every statewide officeholder and the bulk of the district’s Republican county chairmen.
    Young spoke to a packed room full of supporters at his first tour stop at local business Chapman Kelly in Jeffersonville.
    “I am running for office because I am tired of Washington politicians giving lip service to things I care about, like fiscal responsibility, and then going to Washington and supporting the same reckless agenda we have seen leaders of both parties pursue in recent years,” he stated.
    Young continued. “We need responsible leaders who will stand on principle, challenge the excesses of the past, and fight for fiscal responsibility and long-term job growth. In short, we need more leaders in Washington.”
    Young, who is the father of two young girls, and whose wife Jenny is pregnant with twins, is running for Congress out of concern for his children’s’ future.  
    “We cannot continue to spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need.  At some point, we have to stop borrowing from foreign governments like China and passing the debts on to our children and grandchildren.”

    After losing seven of their first nine games to start the season, the Borden High School boys' basketball team seems to be hitting its stride sweeping a Friday-Saturday doubleheader over Christian Academy (CA) and Henryville.
    The Braves won handily, 45-31,  in Friday night's showdown against the visiting Warriors, and then won a one-point thriller Saturday at Henryville.
    Saturday's win over Henryville puts the Braves in a position to salvage the season.
While the team's overall record is just 4-7, they are sitting with a 3-1 record in the Southern Athletic Conference.
    New Washington, with a mark of 2-0, is in first place, but Borden and Head Coach Doc Nash are set to square off against the Mustangs Feb. 16.

    Saturday is full of basketball action at Pekin. The day will begin at 1:30 p.m. with the Lady Musketeers hosting Crawford County.
    Then later that night, the Musketeers will square off against county rival Salem.
    In addition to the basketball action, all the teams involved will be helping to raise money for a good cause as it will be Coaches vs. Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
    Everyone is encouraged to wear pink and hats will be passed through the crowd to collect money for cancer research.
    Prior to the Salem-Eastern boys' game, the 13th annual Bill Cope Chili Supper will also take place. The meal will be served beginning at 4:30 and will include chili, a peanut butter sandwich or hot dog, crackers, drinks and desert for $4.75.
    A la carte items will also be available for purchase.
    Chili supper organizer Bobbi Cope said over the years the event has been a huge success.
    “I am pretty sure that we have given over $13,000 in scholarship money over the years,” she said. “This is a wonderful way to remember my husband and his generous and loving spirit.”
    The Eastern High School Athletic Booster Club is also hosting a silent auction. The top item is a Lebron James autographed basketball as well as other signed balls.
