Republican attacks on Mullen not accurate

Recently, national Republicans have attacked Brendan Mullen. They’ve distorted his biography in an attempt to confuse voters about who he is. Their attacks are simply not true and a symptom of the negativity that is permeating the current Republican Party.

Brendan Mullen grew up in South Bend and attended Adams High School, where he earned a football scholarship to West Point.

Brendan went on to serve his country in Iraq and when he left the military helped start and run, as the chief operating officer, a national and international security services firm that grew to over 110 employees.

In 2008 Mullen opened and started MKS2 LLC, a strategic planning, strategic communication, and information technology consulting firm that employs workers in Indiana and six other states.

Bright, successful people with broad experiences who employ Hoosier workers and are raising Hoosier families are exactly who we should want representing us in Congress.

Brendan has been accused of being a Washington insider. We cannot forget what took him all over the world, including our nation’s capital — his service in the United States Army.

Brendan chose to come back to Indiana and as a small business owner he faces the same problems many of us face at this time: the economic slow down, the need to make payroll, and all the other tribulations that face middle class business owners and families in this economy.

He is not a career politician like his most likely Republican opponent, Jackie Walorski, who has been running for office the last decade. Brendan is a veteran, a family man and a job creator. I hope people look past the negativity and distortions that national Republicans are throwing at Brendan and support this intelligent leader who is exactly the type of Hoosier we need in Congress.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
