Zody calls on Holcomb to explain workplace death contradictions

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after the Indianapolis Star and Center for Investigative Reporting revealed Indiana officials’ involvement in an investigation of a worker’s death at an Indiana Amazon facility.

“If Governor Holcomb or the administration he leads knowingly looked the other way when a man died on the job in a calculated effort to curry favor, it would be a disturbing abandonment of their responsibility to keep workers safe. Holcomb and his administration enforce the laws. Their job is to protect workers, not political interests. The governor owes Hoosiers who put their lives on the line everyday a public explanation of this report and reassurance his administration is looking out for their safety, not big businesses’.”
