I don’t do a lot of campaign plugs around here, but I’ll make an exception for Dave Crooks. I think I’ve mentioned that I had opportunity to work with Dave when he was a state representative from Washington, Indiana. I was a new staffer with the Legislative Service Agency, and I always appreciated that Dave was never too busy for my questions and was conscientious in his approach to legislating.
Now he’s seeking the Democratic primary nomination to run against Larry Buschon in Indiana’s 8th District. The folks in the 8th District would be better served by Dave than just about anyone else I can think of, including Larry Buschon. So, I’ll just take a moment to encourage folks to go check out Dave and maybe send his campaign a few bucks if you’re able. (Campaign site; Facebook site; Twitter.)
