Both of the candidates running in the Nov. 7, 2023, general election for Indianapolis City Council District 4 — Natalie Goodwin (R) and Nick Roberts (D) — 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: Who are you? Tell us about yourself.
“Natalie grew up in Indianapolis, graduated from Lawrence North High School, and as a wife and mom of three, has chosen to raise the next generation of her family on the northeast side of Indianapolis. Natalie has spent most of her career in the private sector helping small businesses grow and succeed. She also served her country and state, working for US Senator Todd Young and Congresswoman Susan Brooks. She is committed to improving the quality of life for all Indianapolis residents and their families by addressing public safety, investing in infrastructure, and expanding economic opportunities.”
“My life has been shaped by service to our community as a fourth generation Lawrence Township resident. From the small businesses my family owned in the Castleton area or watching my dad—a disabled Army veteran—work so hard to provide for our family, giving back has always been part of my core values.
This drive towards helping others was the reason I decided to pursue public service. I’m the Director of Community Relations for the Lawrence Township Trustee’s Office, an Ambassador for the Board of the Greater Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, and I operate a small data analytics business here in Indianapolis, along with many other organizations I work with.”
