Jack Sandlin, Republican candidate for State Senate District 36, says the ad campaign makes false claims about himself and his family.

Jack Sandlin, candidate for State Senate District 36, disputes claims made in a recent ad campaign distributed by the Marion County Republican Party. The mailing and phone campaign charges that Sandlin is a career politician with conflicts of interest.

"Nothing could be further from the truth," Sandlin states, "When you contrast my decades in law enforcement and security with my part-time positions as Perry Township Trustee and Indianapolis City-County Councillor, it becomes very clear that I am a career public servant, not a career politician. These are nothing but attack ads."

Sandlin states he is offended by claims that he has had conflicts of interest in the past, "In my law-enforcement career, as well as my elected positions, I've always been a true public servant. I always vote my conscience, and I always speak my mind. I work hard to prioritize the best interests of those I represent, rather than my own, and I take offense to any claims otherwise."

With the primary days away, Sandlin is disappointed with this turn in the campaign. "I'm outraged at how far these ads have gone, including attacking my wife," he explained. "I'm not a rich guy who is trying to buy votes. I'm just a guy from the Southside who has work hard for every penny, who wants to represent the hardworking men and women in his district."

Sandlin is a pro-life conservative Republican who has been endorsed by Indiana Right to Life. He owns Jack Sandlin & Associates, a firm that provides fraud examination, security consulting and private investigation services. His background includes more than 20 years with the Indianapolis Police Department and three years serving on the Federal Drug Task Force. Sandlin is a U.S. Army Veteran and lives on the south side of Indianapolis with his wife, Lydia. They have one daughter and three grandchildren.
