Chuck Goodrich will put the people of District 29 first

Putting PEOPLE FIRST is so easy for me because it’s what I have done my entire adult life. I’m tired of politicians talking about fixing problems – I’m ready to get to work to solve them. The people of Indiana need more opportunities to build a life that they can be proud of. That is why I am running for Indiana State Representative, House District 29.

I am passionate about workforce development and education. I have witnessed first-hand what it means to give people the opportunity to succeed in our community through skills-based trades. You want to talk about making America great? That’s what these folks do every single day. Yes, many people find success by attending college. However, there is more than one way to become successful, and not attending college doesn’t make people’s accomplishments any less meaningful.


As president of Gaylor Electric, I had the unique opportunity of watching craft men and women from around the country put their skills to the test during the Associated Builders and Contractors National Craft Championships (NCC) held recently in Long Beach, Calif. During the NCC, more than 170 craft professionals competed against each other to be named the best apprentice in the country. Gaylor Electric is proud to have had two employees recognized during the competition: Lucas Anderson, who earned a second-place finish in the Apprentice Competition for Instrumentation, and Richard Brown, one of Noblesville’s own, took home the prestigious Craft Professional of the Year award – which recognizes the best of the best in construction professionals! Both Anderson and Brown are great examples of people who started at the ground-level and, through hard-work and training, progressed into award-winning electrical professionals.

As your State Representative, I want you to know that I believe in you and will focus on growing workforce programs in our community so that District 29 serves as an example to all Hoosiers as to what’s possible when residents and businesses come together. We have great people in our district and I believe, together, we can do more to establish opportunities for workforce development and education.


I will serve you and will work in the best interests of our district. I do not expect taxpayers to pay me to serve them. If elected, my government salary will be donated to helping people in need in Noblesville, Fishers, and throughout District 29.


On May 8, please vote for me, Chuck Goodrich, for State Representative District 29, and let’s keep Indiana awesome.

From the Bottom of Our Hearts – Thank You

From the Bottom of Our Hearts – Thank You

The Crossing would like to thank Gaylor Electric for supporting us throughout our first semester of the 2017-18 school year! We’re halfway through our first year as a satellite campus and appreciate all the support we’ve received to make this semester a success! Thank you for making us feel like part of the Gaylor Electric family!

Thank you to the workers on the floor who have supported and mentored our students during the day. Your work with these students everyday helps them learn and grow! We can’t make this program successful without you!

Thank you to the groups of Gaylor Electric staff who have provided Wednesday lunches for our staff and students. We really appreciate it! We love to eat and have enjoyed being spoiled with excellent food and time to get to know more of the Gaylor staff.

Thank you for surprising us with Christmas gifts! It wasn’t expected and created a lot of excitement for our students (and staff)! It really shows that the hearts of Gaylor Electric support these students and their dreams! We appreciate you showing that love!

Thank you to Gaylor Electric for building a classroom and donating funds to make this partnership a reality! Without that first huge step, none of this would be possible. Thank you for taking a chance on these students and giving them an opportunity to be great.

Our students have collectively earned nearly 40 credits, and we have several students on track to complete graduation this year! We even have two students specifically pursuing employment with Gaylor Electric after they earn their diploma.

On top of the academic accomplishments our students have been able to achieve, each student has had the opportunity to work and learn alongside Gaylor Electric employees. Students have threaded pipes, wired outlets, spray painted assembly boxes, and helped out with many other tasks in prefab.

We’re looking forward to an even better second semester! We’ll be back on January 15th, so feel free to stop by the classroom and get to know the students!

Merry Christmas,
