Joe Hogsett is a lifelong Hoosier and former federal prosecutor. Joe has deep roots in this city: for twenty-five years, his father worked at a Westside factory, and Joe himself has lived and worked in Indianapolis for more than three decades. Over the last four years, Joe Hogsett served as federal prosecutor, cracking down on gun crimes and street gangs while breaking all-time records for the number of criminal convictions and the length of sentences. Joe also launched an initiative to protect taxpayers, rooting out political corruption in both parties and cutting his office’s spending every year he served.
As Mayor, Joe Hogsett will use the same results-oriented approach to stem the city’s violent crime epidemic, improve our local schools, and create more and better job opportunities for working families. He will also strengthen our city’s ethics code, increase transparency, and make sure that city resources are being invested in our neighborhoods – not in insider deals.
