  • Myers reacts to disturbances in Fort Wayne, Indy Friday night
    "Last night, Hoosiers across the state practiced their 1st Amendment rights in protesting the tragic and brutal death of George Floyd. The numbers don’t lie; the Black community has been disproportionately affected by this brutality, both here in Indiana and across the United States. Law enforcement officers took an oath to serve and protect, and their violence against Black Americans is not only wrong, but criminal. The actions that perpetuated these events have exposed the racial inequities in our society, and require us to confront these injustices honestly and openly. While the initial protests were peaceful, the opportunistic looting that followed does little to further the righteous cause intended by the original protesters and activists. Our nation needs to progress into a more equitable tomorrow. I join the world in its outrage and anger at the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and Dreasjon Reed. We cannot accept that injustice remains the status quo in 2020 – the fight to provide a better future lands upon all of our shoulders to find a path together to justice." - Dr. Woody Myers, the presumptive Democratic nominee for governor of Indiana, following protests that ended in arrests and vandalism in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne Friday night.

  • President Trump, Gov. Holcomb address the pandemic in their own words
    The COVID-19 pandemic is becoming the story of our time. As Sen. Todd Young explained, unlike the Great Recession of 2008-09 and the Oil Shock recession of 1979-82, what we are experiencing today is a double hammer: A pandemic and a severe economic panic. The Hoosier State is poised to go from a historic low 3.1% unemployment rate to double digits in the span of a month. At least one pandemic model says 2,400 Hoosiers will die.

    Tough times shift our attention to leadership. Here are quotes from President Trump and Gov. Eric Holcomb as the pandemic approached the U.S. and then impacted our nation and state.

    President Trump

    Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.” – CNBC interview.

    Feb. 10: “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.” – New Hampshire rally.

    Feb. 24: “The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. … Stock market starting to look very good to me!” – On Twitter.

    Feb. 25: “China is working very, very hard. I have spoken to President Xi, and they are working very hard. If you know anything about him, I think he will be in pretty good shape. I think that is a problem that is going to go away.”

    Feb. 26: “We’re going to be pretty soon at only five people. And we could be at just one or two people over the next short period of time. So we’ve had very good luck.” – At a White House news conference.
