Green Party Candidate for Indiana House of Representatives, District 97

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

Mike Smith

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.

In order to appear on this year's ballot, I must collect hundreds of signatures from voters within my district. Due to the COVID-19 provisions affecting door-to-door canvassing and large gatherings of people, I am in need of your assistance in order to be on the ballot to have a legitimate chance of winning. You can quickly check your voter registration and see what House District you're in on the Indiana Voters website.

If you would be so helpful and are a registered voter in House District 97, could you please print and sign my petition at this link, and have as many of your neighbors and friends in the district sign it as well? You can fit up to 10 signatures on each petition sheet, including your own. Then fill out the bottom portion of the form labeled "Petition Carrier Certification", and that's it! (You don't need to complete any part of page 2, but it does need to be printed on the back)

I am willing to make arrangements to come pick up your completed forms or bring you petitions if you can't print them yourself - just let me know when and where to meet up! Or if you prefer, you can mail them to me at: 1918 South Talbott Street, Indianapolis, IN 46225.

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.
