Child Care

We as a state must find a way for working class families to thrive, not survive. Infant care in Indiana costs an average of $8,918 a year, which is 6% more than the price of in-state tuition for a 4-year public college. I as a state legislator will fight to make sure we have access to high-quality affordable childcare that allows Carmel families to thrive and succeed.

Why I am running

A pillar of my campaign is being there for our most vulnerable in our communities and in our state. Access to quality, affordable Mental health services for our children must be a top priority and it will with me.

Indiana’s maternal and infant death rates are high. This bill may help change that.

It is about time we hop aboard what 27 other states are doing but we need to do more to make sure Hoosier women and families are safe in our hospitals.

Season for Sharing: St. Nicholas Early Learning focuses on littlest learners

Childcare is something that is on the minds of many of Carmel families. St. Nicholas is a shining example of the benefits childcare has not only for the children but for the parents. I believe as a State, we need to create more affordable, high-quality childcare options like St. Nicholas for our hard-working families not only in Carmel but Indiana.

More Americans dying at home rather than in hospitals

We need to make sure those who want to stay at home and receive hospice care services and/or end of life care are able to. To allow the flexibility of our seniors or those with chronic illnesses to spend that time surrounded by loved ones and friends at home. We can do it and make sure our seniors receive the services they need in the space they call home.

First-of-its-kind program to provide free solar installations for low-income homes in 2020

I look forward to the results of this innovative program to reduce the cost barriers of homeowners to invest in renewable energy and save money on their energy bill. We as a state need to make it easier for homeowners and businesses to transition and invest in solar. Thanks to Solar United Neighbors for being leaders on this project as well as Indianapolis. We as Hoosiers can be the leader in the solar industry.

Hoosier mothers die in child birth at same rate as women in the Gaza Strip: Help us find out why

Why Labor Day is important to me

Labor day is the day we celebrate the history of our occupations in our country. In many ways, labor is a reflection of the greatness of our country.

We have survived, and even flourished, during dramatic changes in our economy. We excelled when the U.S. transitioned from an agricultural based economy to a manufacturing one. We will also flourish as we move to a technical based economy. The resilience of our workforce to adjust and persevere, is what makes us exceptional.

The movement of rights in the workplace, has mirrored the expansion of our own Democratic values. History has shown countries that allow slavery, child-labor, forced labor, are also authoritarian and lack compassion for it’s citizens.

Make no mistake, we have much left work to be done to ensure everyone has an opportunity to achieve their full potential. We must ensure our daughters are paid the same as our sons. We must invest in public education. We know education is the best way to ensure the next generation has the same opportunities as the ones that came before us. We must demand that every citizen is allowed a fair shot at hiring regardless of sexual orientation, a safe workplace, the right to organize, and all the rights guaranteed under the constitution.

Today is a day to celebrate. It is also a day to reflect on what work is left to be done. But, in this great country, we will meet the challenge. We always have!

Carmel Current Profile

“I’m concerned about the future (path) that Indiana has been on,” said Hinton, a Democrat. “I just decided that now was the time to run. I just really couldn’t sit back anymore and wait or hope things got better or complain, that it was time to really get involved and try to bring the issues to the forefront.”
