Green Party Candidate for Indiana House of Representatives, District 97

Mike Smith - Green Party Candidate for Indiana House of Representatives, District 97

Mike Smith

NOTE: Mike is currently not a registered candidate! There was basically no way we could petition for ballot access when the state was in mandatory lock-down due to COVID. And no additional relief was provided to 3rd party or independent candidates even though we regularly reached out to our government officials. We are pursuing legal action, so IF the lawsuit grants Mike a spot on the ballot, he will run.

Hello, my name is Mike Smith, and I am the Green Party candidate for Indiana State Representative, District 97 (map). I am a US Army specialist with 4 years of active duty, now a veteran with honorable discharge.

Along with all of the Green values, I'm especially fighting pushing for a Universal Basic Income. UBI is needed because of the state's history of union busting and its refusal to increase wages. I'm also fighting for community land trusts so that people can truly stand up against predator developers. I'm fighting to get all Hoosiers on wind power. And I'm fighting for police reform and public schools. I will fight for a non-corporate agenda, unlike the incumbent who takes big money, I don't.

We can do this, we can make a difference.

If you would be interested in meeting with us or helping with the campaign in any way, you can contact the Indiana Green Party or send me an email directly at

Thank you so much for any assistance you can offer!

We demand public financing of elections, open debates, and more representative voting systems.
The human cost of climate change is too high. We need to get off fossil fuels and on to renewable energy.
Our country's long wars and worldwide military presence are immoral and unsustainable. Our military budget must be cut dramatically.
Falling wages and rising bills are hitting most of us, and the most vulnerable are hit the hardest. We demand a living wage and a real safety net.
