VANDERBURGH COUNTY REPUBLICAN PARTY UPDATES

first_imgLocation: Room 301, Civic Center Complex1 NW Martin Luther King Blvd, Evansville  Indiana Workforce Update  (from 1/25/19 post):According to a 2018 employer survey by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, 51 percent of Hoosier employers left an open job unfilled in the past year because they could not find a qualified applicant.This alarming statistic is one reason workforce development is crucial to the success of Indiana’s future economy.Over the past few years, the Indiana General Assembly has passed various initiatives aimed at improving our state’s workforce, and we are already seeing returns on those efforts. One workforce development initiative, the Next Level Jobs Program, launched by Gov. Eric Holcomb, aims to take Indiana’s workforce to the next level by focusing on the industries and jobs integral to Indiana’s 21st-century economy. Since the launch of the program, our state has seen more and more Hoosiers enroll in high-value certificate programs, and completion rates have consistently risen.

Mercer will not seek re-election to City Council at LargeOn Monday,  January 28, 2019, City Councilwoman Michelle Mercer released the following statement:It is with deep disappointment, I announce I will not seek re-election for City Council at Large. This has been a very difficult decision. A citywide campaign for an at large seat in IN’s 3rd largest city requires an extensive time commitment and effort.Personally, it is not a good time for me to be able to devote the time required to run a successful citywide re-election campaign.I will continue to devotedly serve the remainder of my term with the same deep commitment, energy, passion, and fervor that I have throughout the past three years. Serving as City council at Large is an honor and a privilege that I continue to cherish.This term has been and continues to be probably the most exciting ever in Evansville’s history to serve on City Council. Evansville is moving forward with business and economic developments and quality of life developments like never before. I am proud to be a leader in those vibrant advancements for our city.I am hopeful there will be another opportunity to seek election to public office at a better time. I thank all those who have supported me to gain this seat and continue to support me in serving out my term.Michelle MercerCity Councilwoman at Large Indiana House supports legislation to provide perinatal care for at-risk mothers:  ( from Post by VKlimczak 1/24/19)The Indiana House of Representatives voted last week (1/24/19)  in favor of legislation co-authored by State Reps. Wendy McNamara and Holli Sullivan that would provide at-risk mothers with better access to health care and reduce Indiana’s infant mortality rate. Under House Bill 1007, medical providers would check for signs of substance abuse in pregnant women through a consultation, referring women to substance abuse treatment programs as early as possible.The proposal would also establish a perinatal navigator pilot program, which would help connect expecting mothers with prenatal care and wrap-around services. The pilot program would be based on Vanderburgh County’s Pre to 3 program, which is one of the most successful Safety PIN grant programs in the state. This free program was designed to provide consistent care for families from pregnancy until the baby reaches age three.  This legislation would connect at-risk pregnant women with more obtainable resources and health care providers.House Bill 1007 now moves to the Senate for consideration.Read more herelast_img read more
