Why vote for Dr. Brad Barrett?
Although new to the local political scene, I have been a resident of Wayne County since 1993. Having recently retired from the practice of medicine, I now wish to use my education and enthusiasm to represent the people of our district that I have come to know over the last 25 years.
Politically I have participated in advocacy on the state and federal level with the American College of Surgeons. I am currently the secretary-treasurer of the Indiana Chapter of the ACS, having served many years on the council. I am also currently on the Commission on Legislation of the Indiana State Medical Association- that has provided me with multiple opportunities to testify in front of health care and insurance committees as well as the Medical Licensing Board. It is during this time that I developed a passion for state politics. Health care issues dominate the state political scene including the provision of care to the state’s indigent population, tackling the opioid epidemic and dealing with increasing rates of trauma and child abuse state wide. And of course, at all levels, I have supported the Republican party and the ideals that our party was founded upon.
I feel that I can proudly represent the citizens of District 56 with my educational background, life experience and enthusiasm. In 25 years I professionally cared for members of this community ranging from the unemployed to business owners, from the drug abusers and trauma victims to the police and firefighters that serve our area. I now look forward to representing all of these members of the community, as well as all of you, at the next level.
