Goodrich is officially a candidate for Congress



Noblesville, Indiana – Chuck Goodrich, a representative for Indiana’s House District 29, made the announcement that he will be running for the 5th Congressional District of Indiana on Friday afternoon at the Mill Top in Noblesville. His announcement came only about 15 hours after the completion of the regular session of the state legislature.

Before turning the floor over to Indiana Speaker of the House Todd Huston, the Mayor of Noblesville, Chris Jensen, gave an opening speech that was quite animated.

Goodrich was praised by Huston as a “people-first person” with an extraordinary passion for helping others.

“He’s a phenomenal legislator,” Huston said. “He’s the type of legislator we need in Washington D.C., who gets serious about doing complicated and difficult things and drives them to the finish line. He will be tremendous in D.C. We have to have people who get to work and get things done.”

Goodrich started out his remarks by talking about the most recent legislative session, which, according to him, concluded at around two in the morning.

One of the accomplishments from this session that was noted by both Huston and Goodrich was House Bill 1002, which, in Goodrich’s words, “Allows students to rethink high school.” Huston also mentioned that this bill was one of the triumphs of this session. In addition to allowing students to finish with a diploma, House Bill 1002 also enables students to graduate with an industry-recognized certificate, which prepares them for the workforce.

“That bill is going to change Indiana,” Goodrich said. “It lets Indiana Hoosier families have a reason to stay, work, and live in Indiana for generations to come.”

Goodrich reminded the group of supporters gathered there that he had the opportunity to build both his profession and his life by adhering to the traditional Midwestern principles of hard work, humility, and resilience.

“Hard work, humility, and grit: that’s how I was raised,” Goodrich said. “That’s how we raised our family. That is absolutely the thing I am going to take to Washington, D.C.: the work ethic on those three Midwestern values.”

As an illustration of the kind of first-hand business knowledge that is necessary at the federal level, Goodrich referenced his experience of beginning his career at Gaylor Electric as an intern, working his way up through the company, and then purchasing the business as an example.

“I have a practical knowledge that literally needs to be in D.C.,” Goodrich said. “We should require folks to be able to build a business, run a business, make payroll, and literally understand why rising healthcare costs are killing our nation.”

He claimed that he deals with growing federal regulation, rising taxation on people and businesses, and other issues every day.

“I want to bring my conservative perspective to that conversation in Washington, D.C.,” Goodrich said. “That’s the reason I want to go to D.C. and that’s the reason I will go to D.C. I will actually be the conservative voice for all of you and for other people in the district in Congress. The reality is that your voices aren’t being heard and it will be heard when I get to Congress.”
