Carlos May to Bring Common Sense,
Conservative Solutions in Bid for Congress
Files to Run for 7th District Seat
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 10, 2012) – Carlos May, a current official in the Mayor Greg Ballard administration, today filed to be a candidate for Indiana’s Seventh District Congressional seat. May was the officially slated Republican candidate for the same office in the 2010 election.
“Each year, Congress’s approval ratings sink lower and lower as we continue to lose trust in Washington,” said May. “From our national debt crisis to a failing economy to the looming calamities not yet known, the American people realize that this time we need to make some real changes that transform Washington, reject bad leadership and replace poor representation.”
“It’s time to bring common sense, conservative solutions to the problems that plague our country and increase our challenges here in the seventh district,” continued May.
The campaign will focus on setting a tone to transform Washington by returning more control to the states, creating an environment that produces and protects jobs and reducing deficits by more efficiently running government while lowering the tax burden.
“My dedication to public service has only grown in my years working for a great Mayor serving an outstanding city,” said May. “I would like to take that commitment to a place that needs it more, while continuing to serve the citizens of the Indianapolis area.”
May has worked in Mayor Ballard’s administration as a Neighborhood Liaison, and as the current Director of the Mayor’s Office of Latino Affairs.
May earned his B.A. in Political Science from Wabash College in 2001 and graduated in 2003 with his law degree from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, CA. May has also worked in the private sector as Director for West Coast Operations for Marathon Building Services, and as an International Manager for DFS Galleria.
