Gov. Pence’s Task Force Attempts to Hide His Consistent Failure to Protect the Health and Well-Being of Hoosiers

INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement in response to Governor Mike Pence’s executive order to establish the Task Force on Drug Enforcement, Treatment, and Prevention.

“While today’s executive order by Governor Pence may seem encouraging to some, it doesn’t hide his consistent failure to protect the health and well-being of our most vulnerable Hoosiers. The Governor has already been late to the game on improving the quality of life in our state. While Scott County was in the heat of its HIV outbreak, it took 65 days for Governor Pence to react – catapulting cases from 10 to 79. As our state saw a spike in child abuse and neglect cases within the Indiana Department of Child Services, Pence only provided the bare minimum resources to fight this epidemic. Governor Pence may wait for a public relations crisis to act, but Democrats will lead on these issues and solve today’s problems for the hardworking Hoosier family. We can do better than Gov. Pence and his consistent late to the game ideology over commonsense strategy.”
