Jeffers said his military and government experience will be the backbone of a campaign that will focus on service first with an emphasis on community connectivity issues: improving local infrastructure, including new sidewalks for neighborhoods; lowering the high cost of internet and cable services; appropriate education funding; access to quality schools; and redistricting and elections reform.
Jeffers said he wants to encourage the young and young at heart throughout the district to mobilize and get engaged in their government. “We are seeing young people across the nation leading a movement for change in America. I think this is a positive sign for the future, and I look to my children for inspiration as I undertake this campaign.
“My opponent has spent 14 years in public office, but I’m not sure we’re getting what we deserve out of our local and state government. We need someone who’s willing to fight for our values and our community at the Statehouse, and I look forward to meeting and listening to the concerns of my fellow citizens in Franklin and Perry townships,” said Jeffers, who was an executive assistant and deputy legislative director for Gov. Evan Bayh.
A graduate of Wabash College and a baseball coach at the Edgewood Athletic Association, he has served in various public service capacities and is employed by Verizon and CSO Architects.
Jeffers and his wife, Chris, have five children and are members of Calvary Lutheran Church.
