Dear Fellow Hoosiers of Indiana District #4:

(Benton, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Hendricks, Howard, Jasper, Montgomery, Morgan, Newton, Putnam, Tippecanoe, Warren, and White Counties.)

It's time, time for a change in Congress.  I am deeply disappointed in the way that the U.S. Congress & Senate leadership have not supported President Trump and his agenda. 

As a retired U.S. Army Officer, Decorated Combat Veteran, small business owner, husband, and father, I feel that our Country is slipping away. 

Although, there are numerous challenges that face our great Nation, I believe that we can overcome these issues by a "Changing of the Guard" in Washington D.C.  This is why I am running for the U.S. Congressional District #4 seat (Indiana) in 2018.

My promise to the people of our district, I will always have your best interests' at heart when voting and will always maintain constant communication with you. 

Below, you will find some of my Priorities/Goals for our State and Country:

  1. I am a fiscal conservative and support Balancing the Federal Budget.
  2. Assist the U.S. President & Congress in creating & implementing a plan to defeat terrorist groups that pose a threat to the United States and its allies.
  3. Assist in updating and improving the current tax code.
  4. Abolish the death tax.
  5. Support the enforcement of current immigration laws and building an effective security system between Mexico and the U.S. 
  6. Recommend additional coverage benefits to medicare recipients as it relates to individuals with Diabetes. 
  7. Keep God in the Public Sphere.
  8. Promote job growth-Recruit Businesses to Indiana.
  9. Continue to improve the capabilities of the U.S. Armed Forces.
  10. Continue to support and fund "First Responders (i.e. Police/Fire/EMS/etc..) operations.
  11. Recommend improvements to the current social security system so that the program doesn't run out of money (Privatization of funds?).
  12. Health Care-Ensure that all Hoosiers receive quality & relevant Healthcare.
  13. Veterans-Create and Implement a proactive outreach program to assist veteran's with Veteran Administration (VA) benefits.
  14. Veterans-Improve Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) programs for all veterans.
  15. Continue to support programs that will decrease the veteran suicide rate.
  16. Education-Ensure all children receive a quality education that is not dictated by the Federal Government.
  17. Education-Recognize the importance of Teachers, Professors, and educators at all levels throughout Indiana. 
  18. Farmers-I will work hard to improve your financial stability by obtaining support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 
  19. Hunters/Firearm owners-Continue to support the Absolute Right to Gun Ownership
  20. Prioritize Green Energy Efforts (i.e. wind farms & solar energy)
  21. Author and propose a bill that will allow all military veterans (Active, Reservist/Guard, Retired), public school teachers (K-12 & community college), law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical system personnel to automatically decrease their taxable income by 25%.  This would be our way of saying "Thank You" for those serving our Country and the children of our communities. 

Please join me in my efforts to make our State and Country a better place to live for current and future generations.

Get involved by volunteering and/or donating funds for the campaign.

Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely, 

Kevin J. Grant.

The Day Kevin Grant met Donald Trump

April 27, 2016...

It was a happy and sad day for U.S. Congressional Candidate, Kevin J. Grant, of West Lafayette, Indiana. 

Donald Trump was planned to conduct a town hall meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana with Greta Van Sustren. 

The night before the event, Kevin was at home preparing his U.S. Army dress blues for his friends funeral, which was to be held on the evening of April 27th.

While watching Fox News...the announcer stated how people in Indiana could get tickets to the Greta Van Sustren show....so Kevin quickly went to the website and was surprised that he was lucky enough to get a ticket.

On the day of the event, Kevin was distraught because he didn't know if he would be able to make both events.  His friend, MAJ Bruce Malone, an Active Duty U.S. Army Officer recently committed suicide and Kevin was determined to pay respect to his dear friend. 

Kevin arrived in downtown Indy and stood in line like everyone else.  Once he made it inside the venue, a staff member from the Greta VanSustren show asked him to sit on stage.  In fact, as you face the stage, Kevin was seated right behind Donald Trump's right shoulder.  

After the show, Kevin didn't know if he was going to meet Donald Trump or not.  As Donald Trump made his rounds on the stage, he stopped and shook Kevin's hand.  Kevin and Donald Trump spoke for a moment...Kevin explained how he supported Donald Trump since he was 19 years old.  He showed Donald Trump an old book that he received for his 19th birthday (Kevin was 46)...It was Donald Trump's book..."Art of the Deal'.  Donald took the book, smiled and then signed it.  Kevin continued to explain to Donald Trump that he was running for Congress in Indiana and Donald Trump wrote the word "WIN!" in his book.  Donald Trump gave the book back to Kevin and pointed to what he wrote.  Kevin thanked him for his time and wished him luck.

Later that evening, Kevin attended his friends funeral...it was a very sad event. Kevin and Bruce deployed together to the Middle East...where they became great friends. Knowing that his friend, Bruce Malone, struggled with PTSD...If elected in 2018, Kevin has vowed to decrease the suicide rate among veterans. 

The day was truly remarkable and sad.  Kevin stated "I will miss my brother in arms...he was a great soldier, man and father"

WIth reference to meeting Donald Trump...Kevin stated "he was happy to meet the next President of the United States"

Tax Break for School Teachers and Administration

As a father of a ten year old, I understand the importance of our teachers and administrators of K-12 public school system.  

As a tax & financial consultant, I see first hand how little teachers make and how numerous school teachers use their own money for school projects, etc.  Unfortunately, school teachers in the public school system don't make as much as they should.

In order to show our appreciation of what they do on a daily basis...if elected to Congress...I will author a bill that will reduce the taxable income by 25% on all public school teachers and administration staff.

This is the least we can do for them because they are responsible for our children...the future leaders of our Nation.

Thank You!

To my fellow Hoosiers...

As a decorated U.S. Army retired combat veteran, I understand the challenges and sacrifices that our fellow police, firefighters, emergency medical response personnel and their families make on a daily basis.

If elected as the next U.S. Congressman of Indiana (District #4) in 2018... 

I promise to author and push through the legislative process a bill that will reduce our "First Responders" taxable income by 25% on their Personal Income Tax Return.

This is a small gesture of our gratitude for these great Americans for the hard work that they perform everyday.

Thank you to all "First Resonders"...I appreciate your hard work and sacrifices.
