INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today issued the following statement after Governor Eric Holcomb announced plans on how the state would handle the remaining months of the COVID-19 pandemic:
“From the start of the pandemic, Democrats have been pushing to keep public health above partisan games — and we’ve been focused on safely getting people back to work, kids back to school, and families and friends together again in person. Tonight’s address proves that federal, state, and local partnerships work and we’re grateful that the Holcomb administration has been working so well with the Biden-Harris administration in administering a top-notch vaccine program developed by Dr. Kristina Box and Dr. Lindsay Weaver. This shows why unified solutions are always better than one-sided agendas.
All Hoosiers, regardless of political leanings, should celebrate this historic moment. And as we said on March 3, it’s imperative for Governor Holcomb to ignore his Party’s demands and put science, data, and the lives of Hoosiers ahead of the dangerous rhetoric that gripped our nation the last few years. There have been some bumps in the road recently — such as Holcomb denying teachers access to vaccines — but we all now see the exit out of the pandemic, and it’s because we’re all united and fought this virus together.” – Lauren Ganapini, Executive Director for the Indiana Democratic Party
