Mel has dedicated his career to improving health care. He will continue that work in Congress by protecting and improving health care and will fight back against efforts to take affordable health care away from working class families. Mel helped build Press Ganey, a company that works with hospitals and other health care providers to champion the one voice often left out of the health care debate: patients. He deeply understands the issues of affordability and delivery and will seek to improve and expand access to health care for all Americans.
Mel knows what it takes to help small businesses succeed and will work in Congress to build an economy that works for all Hoosiers. That means securing pay equity in the workplace, protecting the right to organize, and ensuring the tax breaks go to entrepreneurs and working families, not wall street executives. After graduate school at Notre Dame, Mel joined Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company, as employee number 34. A few years later Mel was running the company and created over 700 jobs – right here in northern Indiana.
Indiana students are falling behind our global competitors because we have not made investments in education a priority. High-quality public education is a cornerstone of a strong democracy. Congress must work to provide students with the skills they need to succeed. This includes making college more affordable and making investments in training programs and apprenticeships.
Mel will be accessible to everyone in the 2nd District as he has been since the beginning of his campaign. He will take the principles of transparency and accountability, by which he has lived his entire life, to Congress and make sure Hoosier voices are heard loud and clear and that tax dollars are spent more efficiently.
