All candidates for Indianapolis City Council District 13 complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Both of the candidates running in the Nov. 7, 2023, general election for Indianapolis City Council District 13 — Jesse Brown (D) and Elizabeth Glass (Libertarian Party) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.

Here are the candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?


  • “We need massive investment in our infrastructure and public transportation systems.
  • We must insist on high-paying union jobs for any company seeking taxpayer money.
  • We deserve a government that is responsive, accountable, and transparent.”


  • “The City Council should work to ensure that our police and fire departments have the resources they need to keep our community safe, while also respecting the rights of our citizens.
  • The City Council is capable of reducing taxes for the citizens of Indianapolis and should work to reduce the tax burden on our citizens and businesses.
  • The City Council should operate in an open and transparent manner in all aspects, but especially when it comes to where its citizen’s taxes are going.”
