Boone County Council President Elise Nieshalla has announced her bid to run for Indiana State Treasurer, hoping to succeed current holder Kelly Mitchell who is term limited. In her announcement, Nieshalla said she is a conservative Republican who will defend economic freedom and ensure Indiana’s pension investments align with Hoosier values.

Nieshalla, a Zionsville resident, said there have been several “egregious encroachments” by President Joe Biden’s administration on those freedoms, especially when it comes to public pension investments.

“The Biden administration is proposing that those pensions, as a default, get invested into ESG (environmental, social and governance) or very woke left-wing investment funds,” she said. “Not in Indiana. I will put up a firewall against that here in Indiana because that does not serve the best interest of Hoosiers.”
