Ashley Klein for Indiana
I am a lifelong resident of Washington Township and Carmel and have spent over fifteen years in real estate—working with folks from different backgrounds, helping them discover their place in our neighborhoods. Listening to people, learning about their love for the community as well as their worries and concerns for the future. I'm running for Indiana State Senate, because I care deeply about this District and I believe Hoosiers deserve a better quality of life.
We need a leader who will advance the values and interests of this welcoming and dynamic community. A legislator who will move Indiana forward by investing in Pre-K-12 education, fixing our aging infrastructure, and protecting access to reproductive care. A representative who puts constituents first and works across the aisle to make our communities stronger.
I am committed to fighting for an Indiana that makes life better for all Hoosiers and will work hard to deliver solutions that move Senate District 30 forward.
District 30 covers Broad Ripple, Meridian Kessler, Nora, and Meridan Hills in Indianapolis as well as communities in southern Carmel and Fishers.
Invest in Pre-K-12
Our kids and teachers deserve better. Education is the pathway to a safer, healthier and more prosperous Indiana. We need to ensure all children are off to the best possible start with universal Pre-K and expect fairness from lawmakers when it comes to school funding. Our State must attract and retain top educators and compensate them as professionals—no teacher should have to work a second job to make ends meet. Investing in Pre-K through higher education needs to be a critical priority for the Statehouse - Indiana’s ability to compete in the 21st century economy depends on it.
Indiana is "The Crossroads of America" and plays a crucial role in the transportation of people, goods and services across our country and yet our infrastructure continues to crumble. We must re-invest in our roads, highways and bridges and ensure that every Hoosier has safe, affordable drinking water. Indiana needs a comprehensive strategy that leads us into the future and returns resources back to local communities—so that local governments can target the critical road repairs that impact your everyday commute. Failing to develop a long-term plan will only escalate the costs and jeopardizes our health, safety and economy.
Grow & Keep Talent in Indiana
Indiana is losing ground in this economy due to the State’s shortage of highly skilled workers and our troubling brain drain trend where college students leave following graduation. Developing and keeping our talent in Indiana will fuel innovation, raise wages and build a stronger economy for all Hoosiers. Lawmakers, universities and the business community must work together to develop solutions and ensure that Indiana can compete for talent as an open and welcoming community that embraces a global marketplace.
Legislators have no place in the exam room. We must trust women to make the best decisions about their healthcare and fight to protect and improve every Hoosiers' access to reproductive healthcare here in Indiana.
WHY I’m RUnning
We Make the Future.
I am running for Indiana State Senate District 30 (Washington Township, southern Carmel and southern Fishers).
District 30 has been nationally recognized in polls and publications as being one of America’s best places to live. Our state legislature must move on from the flyover state mentality and regressive social issues that cast Indiana in a negative light and start promoting it as the welcoming place that it is.
Due to unfair congressional boundaries, Indiana’s Democratic senators are outnumbered 40-10 and do not have enough seats to stop misguided legislation at the committee level. This radical imbalance of power means that your voice as a dynamic and progressive District is not being represented by the current supermajority in the Statehouse.
So here's how we fight back:
We Start Locally.
We Act Now.
We Build our Numbers in Office and Take Back District 30.
If elected, I will work tirelessly to understand your challenges and represent your interests in the Statehouse. As a trusted neighbor, business owner, and mother, I will fight for progressive policies while maintaining financial accountability and will work across the aisle to develop the best legislative solutions for our community. Let’s do this together!
