I-PACE, the political action division of the Indiana State Teachers Association (ISTA), endorses Michael Bienz for State Representative. Having participated in the #RedForEd day of action in Fort Wayne, Michael is advocating increased per-student funding for public schools, in addition to restoring collective bargaining rights to teachers so that they can cap class sizes.
The American Federation of Teachers has endorsed Bienz For Rep, writing that they "look forward to your work for and support of public schools and working families in Indiana."
The Northwest Indiana Gay-Straight Coalition has endorsed Bienz For Rep, writing in part "We thank you for making it a priority to include LGBTQ+ issues in your platform and, more than anything, for being an advocate for those who do not yet receive deserved protections under the law."
Region 2-B, UAW (United Auto Workers) endorses Michael Bienz for State Representative. This endorsement is especially meaningful, given that Fort Wayne's GM Assembly Plant is very close to our district, and many of the workers at the Fort Wayne Assembly live in District 83.
