Conservative blog Hoosier Access endorses Jim Banks

What follows appeared yesterday on the conservative, statewide blogsite when the group officially announced their first public endorsement of a candidate at www.hoosieraccess.com :

"The Directors of Hoosier Access are proud to announce our very first candidate endorsement. We enthusiastically support and endorse Jim Banks (R – Columbia City) for Whitley County Council. Even though Jim is one our fellow Directors, he was not allowed to participate in our voting.

Jim is a staunch fiscal conservative that will help lead Whitley County into the future knowing that local government needs to keep a check in its spending, especially in light of the recent property tax legislation that was just passed. State Representative Matt Bell has gone on record to say that “Jim Banks will be a great County Councilman and advocate for Whitley County families and businesses. I look forward to working with him to find ways to fight taxes and build a better Whitley County.”

Jim was born and raised in Columbia City and South Whitley and has continually showed his leadership and dedication, to his community, county and his party. He graduated from Indiana University in 2004 after doing several campaigns here in Indiana and Colorado. After college Jim worked for Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he also set up Jim Banks Consulting, LCC before coming back to Indiana in 2005. He set up shop in Columbia City where he renamed his company The Wabash Group, LLC.

Jim was unanimously appointed by the Whitley County Commissioners to serve on the Northeast Indiana Regional Workforce Board, is a member of the Columbia City Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club and is a Director on the Allen County Right to Life Committee Board. He is also a member of the Gideons. Jim and his wife also attend Emmanuel Community Church in Fort Wayne.

Jim is the epitome of what Hoosier Access and your average Hoosier stands for and believes. It is for these reasons that we are pleased to give our stamp of approval to Jim Banks in his pursuit of a seat on the Whitley County Council. If you would like to support Jim in his campaign, click here."
