John Gregg on Jobs
Attract, retain and support businesses that pay living wages
I've been a small business owner, worked for two Fortune 500 companies, spent 16 years in the Indiana House of Representatives, including 6 years as Speaker and served as the President of Vincennes University.
My focus will be on finding new and innovative ways to help attract, retain and support businesses that pay Hoosiers workers living wages.

Focus on living-wage jobs, not on social issues
"What we're about is jobs, good-paying jobs," the 16-year veteran of the Indiana House of Representatives who spent six years as speaker of the House said. "We're going to work to close that income gap. It's not just about jobs, it's about living-wage
jobs. It's about taking advantage of our opportunities in technology."
The need to "work with local government rather than against it" is something Gregg believes is necessary to strengthen Indiana for the future. "We need to quit hamstringing
local government and good things will fall into place," he suggested.
"Sadly, under Mike Pence, Indiana has been given a bad name.
While working Hoosiers are falling further and further behind, he's been focused on social issues and telling people how they should live their lives. That's not the business of a governor or any government."
