INDIANAPOLIS – Chairman John Zody issued the following statement on the appointment of Jim Schellinger to the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.
“It’s only after he put Indiana and its middle class in jeopardy that Governor Pence has decided to listen to a Democrat on how to better improve the state’s sluggish economy and bruised well-being. While hardworking Hoosiers continue to see an expanding wage gap and falling wages, maybe the IEDC can re-start by cutting down wasteful spending on taxpayer-funded projects and bad PR contracts that only seek to highlight Governor Pence’s fictitious ‘strong’ economy. It’s only when these issues are addressed that we will begin to unite the state and do better to improve the lives of all Hoosier families. Democrats will continue fighting toward that end, and we wish Jim Schellinger well.”
