President Obama to speak at Ivy Tech in Indianapolis on Friday
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 2, 2015)– On Friday, President Barack Obama is coming to Indianapolis to speak at Ivy Tech Community College, according to a White House spokesman.
Spokesman Keith Maley issued the following statement to CBS4:
“On Friday, February 6th, the President will travel to the Indianapolis, Indiana area to discuss the importance of Middle class economics, including making the paychecks of working families go further, preparing hardworking Americans to earn higher wages, and keeping good, high-paying jobs in America. The President will deliver remarks at Ivy Tech Community College, which works to ensure Hoosiers are well-equipped for and connected to good-paying jobs by partnering with businesses that are creating pathways for career advancement, including leveraging apprenticeships and education benefits, and upskilling Americans. The travel to Indiana follows the President’s recent visits to Idaho and Kansas where he discussed his policies to help the middle class in every state across the country. As the President emphasized in his State of the Union address, ‘…we are still more than a collection of red states and blue states… we are the United States of America.’ Further details regarding the President’s trip to Indiana will be available in the coming days.”
It is unclear at this time if the event will be open to the public. More details are expected later this week.
This will be the seventh time Obama has visited Indiana since becoming president in 2009. In September, President Obama visited an auto plant supplier in southern Indiana.
