Meet Mark Hinton




As a life-long Hoosier and father of a 8th grade daughter, I have grown deeply concerned about the future of politics in Indiana.  Instead of complaining about it from the sidelines, I have decided to step up and run for office.


I do not want my daughter to grow up in a state where she is not paid as much as her male counterparts for the same work.


I want her to graduate from a state that offers the very best education, not one that fails to invest in future generations. I don’t want my daughter to graduate from college so indebted that she’ll never be able to pay it off.  


I want my child to grow up in a state where her job opportunities are competitive with the rest of the country.  I want her to live in a state that values her healthcare.  I want her children to grow up in a state that values clean water and air.  And I want the same for all Hoosier families. 


 I will bring a new and fresh perspective to government. I will protect the interests of citizens and not lobbyists.  I pledge to work for the people of District 39, not to any lobbyist or corporate interest, and I will not accept personal gifts or dinners from lobbyists.  


Funding public education will be one of my top priorities in the State House.

Why Labor Day is important to me

Labor day is the day we celebrate the history of our occupations in our country. In many ways, labor is a reflection of the greatness of our country.

We have survived, and even flourished, during dramatic changes in our economy. We excelled when the U.S. transitioned from an agricultural based economy to a manufacturing one. We will also flourish as we move to a technical based economy. The resilience of our workforce to adjust and persevere, is what makes us exceptional.

The movement of rights in the workplace, has mirrored the expansion of our own Democratic values. History has shown countries that allow slavery, child-labor, forced labor, are also authoritarian and lack compassion for it’s citizens.

Make no mistake, we have much left work to be done to ensure everyone has an opportunity to achieve their full potential. We must ensure our daughters are paid the same as our sons. We must invest in public education. We know education is the best way to ensure the next generation has the same opportunities as the ones that came before us. We must demand that every citizen is allowed a fair shot at hiring regardless of sexual orientation, a safe workplace, the right to organize, and all the rights guaranteed under the constitution.

Today is a day to celebrate. It is also a day to reflect on what work is left to be done. But, in this great country, we will meet the challenge. We always have!

Carmel Current Profile

“I’m concerned about the future (path) that Indiana has been on,” said Hinton, a Democrat. “I just decided that now was the time to run. I just really couldn’t sit back anymore and wait or hope things got better or complain, that it was time to really get involved and try to bring the issues to the forefront.”
