Indiana State Senate District 11

Ed is a community organizer, veteran, woodworker, and father. He found his commitment to public service when he joined the Navy at 21 years old. He served as a sonar technician on the USS Sides, stationed in San Diego, CA, for six years. He was also a Catholic lay leader and a counselor for deployed soldiers, which helped him understand the lived experiences and struggles of military families in this country. Since then, Ed has taken his dedication to public service to Indiana. He has served as the director of campaign recruitment for Indivisible Indiana, District 2. Through his work with Indivisible, he found his passion for politics and organizing. He has coordinated numerous rallies in support of DACA and protests against illegal detention of undocumented immigrants. He also planned a vigil after the events in Charlottesville that quickly went from ten people to hundreds showing up in solidarity against white nationalist groups. Ed's campaign is focused on a strong public education system as a means to escape poverty and prison, protecting the environment for all of Indiana, making Indiana more inclusive by passing hate crime legislation as one of his first priorities, and legalizing and decriminalizing marijuana.

"Ed is a candidate who not only works for the people but shows up for them. As an active member within our community, Ed has shown support for his constituents at civic engagements, community events, and council meetings. Ed not only advocates for his district but takes the time to listen to our concerns and takes them to heart. Regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religion, Ed has taken the time to learn and become proactive in supporting everyone. Over the past few years, Ed has shown a dedication to the people not many before him have. This is why I support and endorse Ed Liptrap." –Tricia from South Bend
