Tuesday, November 26, 2019

SPEEDWAY — Combat Army Veteran and community organizer Pete Cowden announced his candidacy for Indiana State Senate District 35 during a campaign launch party at a packed VFW 1587 on Saturday, November 23.

During the campaign launch, Cowden made the case for why he is the better candidate to represent Hoosiers living in State Senate District 35 and laid out his vision for the district’s future.

“After 33 years of the same failed policies that profit only the rich and wealthy, the people of our district are fed up with a government that no longer works for us,” said Cowden. 

“As the son of a small business owner and a combat veteran, I know what it’s like to be at the mercy of out-of-touch career politicians. Yet, I also know that the right people in the right positions can help to build and better our communities. As your next state senator, I promise to listen to your concerns, serve our community and unite Hoosiers in this time of political divisiveness.” 

Cowden is running against long-time incumbent Mike Young (R-Indianapolis) who has served in the Indiana General Assembly since 1986.  

A three-tour former Army Ranger, Pete and his fiancée Zain live in the heart of Speedway with their dog Sheba. Currently a Veteran’s Service Officer with the Wayne Township Trustee’s Office, Pete assists veterans and their families in crisis to obtain the appropriate resources to get back on their feet.
