INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party held its State Convention yesterday, where it officially nominated its candidates for the three statewide offices up for election in November.
“I’m really excited about the Indiana Democratic Party’s statewide ticket,” said Chairman John Zody. “These candidates have one thing in common – they all have experience in the areas in which the office they’re running for governs. The other side can’t say that, regardless of who they select. Hoosiers have seen what happens when one party controls everything – the party infighting and personal politics trumps helping Hoosiers. We can and must do better.”
Beth White, who was nominated for Secretary of State, is currently serving her second term in office as Marion County Clerk, where she is a champion of voters’ rights. While in office, she has expanded early voting opportunities and lobbied the legislature to remove barriers to voting. Beth worked for former Mayor Bart Peterson and was part of the O’Bannon administration before becoming clerk. A Bloomington native, Beth is a graduate of IU and Georgetown University Law Center.
Mike Claytor, a Certified Public Accountant and now Auditor of State nominee, began his professional career at the Indiana State Board of Accounts, where he rose to the position of Deputy State Examiner. In that position, he worked on several white collar crime investigations and helped ensure integrity in Indiana government. Mike went to work at Crowe Horwath, a top-ten CPA firm founded in South Bend, in 1989, becoming a partner three years later. In addition to being a CPA, Mike also received a Juris Doctorate from Indiana University - Indianapolis School of Law.
Mike Boland, the nominee for Treasurer, is a 30-year educator who moved to Indiana in 2012 with his wife to be closer to their family, after serving in the Illinois General Assembly for 16 years. While in office there, he was awarded 36 awards for his service in the House from groups representing educators, veterans, child advocates, agriculture and firefighters. He served as the chair of the House Elections and Campaign Reform Committee, where he passed reforms to make voter registration easier; chair of the House Financial Institutions Committee, where he led the effort to hold entities more accountable; chair of the House Higher Education Committee; and vice chair of the House Veterans Committee.
“Democrats are problem solvers who are working to move Indiana forward and address Hoosiers’ needs, both for now and in the future. We are fighting for common-sense solutions that improve the quality of life in Indiana, help struggling families, and build a thriving middle class,” said Chairman Zody. “Beth White, Mike Claytor, and Mike Boland will restore balance to the Statehouse, bring integrity back to their respective offices, and work in a bipartisan way to move Indiana forward.”

Bailey Supports Bi-partisan Investigation into VA
Ninth Congressional District candidate Bill Bailey endorses an independent, bi-partisan investigation into the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. “Memorial Day ought to be about honoring our veterans, instead of learning how they are being dishonored by the Veterans Affairs department. I fear we are seeing just the tip of the iceberg about veterans’ needs being poorly handled,” Bailey, a Seymour Democrat, said.
