Bob Ashley – Your Common Sense Voice for the Indiana House
Welcome to the Bob Ashley 2014 website.
My roots in the 32nd Indiana House District go back three generations, where I spent more than a few of my childhood summers in Goldsmith in Tipton County “helping” my grandfather, Glen Stouder, deliver fertilizer and stone to local farmers
Although I later worked for a Northern Indiana newspaper, reporting on the antics of the Indiana General Assembly, Goldsmith is where family always gathered for birthdays and holidays, and it’s where I later lived for several years after leaving newspapering. My brother, a Tipton County councilman, has been a successful area homebuilder for more than 35 years.
As an Indiana-based journalist for longer than that, I witnessed firsthand the Legislature being taken over an ultraconservative minority that doesn’t reflect real Hoosier values. I am appalled by the regressive turns Indiana has taken in so many areas, and I vow to be a voice in our state assembly to foster change.
I am embarrassed by incumbent Eric Turner’s attacks on women’s rights, as well as his ill-considered constitutional amendment to prohibit Indiana from recognizing non-married couples as partners. And unlike Turner, I will bring integrity to the office. My ethics will be above reproach.
Indiana’s 32nd District is made up of all of Tipton County, northern Hamilton County and precincts in Howard, Grant, Delaware and Madison counties. I promise that when I am elected, I will vigorously represent the residents of the 32nd District and deal directly with the problems facing our cities and towns, rather than try to disrupt Indiana’s social landscape.
Please take a look through my website to learn about more about my positions on issues affecting Hoosiers. Then, if you like what you find, please donate to my campaign or volunteer to get involved. If you wish to send me a personal note, click Contact.
I am always happy to hear from my fellow Hoosiers and future constituents.
