Vare Confidently Looks Forward to November

Offers Voters Real Transparency

FISHERS, Ind., – The campaign staff, known collectively as Friends of Jocelyn Vare, celebrated a win with candidate Jocelyn Vare on Primary Election Day. Vare is now the official Democratic candidate for Indiana State Senate, District 31. The staff is forthcoming that they expected to win the election. Vare was uncontested. In reality, the celebration was directly related to stretch goals the team set and reached on May 3, 2022.

“We are a dedicated group of people-driven, goal-oriented volunteers,” says field strategy director A. Brando Corsaro. “Primary elections traditionally have low voter turnout and we established a goal to increase Democratic primary voters for the district by at least ten percent. We over-achieved on that goal and continue to see Jocelyn’s work resonate with voters exponentially.”

Vare received 25% more Hamilton County votes in 2022 than her peer candidate in 2018. The campaign team uses the 2018 election cycle, a non-presidential election year, to establish benchmarks and set goals. At the same time, Vare and Corsaro offer full disclosure on what redistricting means for voters and number comparisons. State Senate District 31 was redrawn in 2021 for the 2022 election to include all of Fishers, Geist, and parts of Noblesville and the Northeast Side of Indianapolis. Now, 72% of this district is in Hamilton County.

“This new district is a fresh opportunity for Hoosiers,” says Vare. “For instance, all Fishers residents are together in this single State Senate district for the first time. No traditional incumbent and new district lines means that all District thirty-one residents will be electing their State Senator for the first time.”

In addition to achieving increased voter turnout in the primary election, Vare’s campaign saw a 20% increase in weekly fundraising since May 3rd and volunteer activity continues to grow. Vare and Friends of Jocelyn Vare volunteers have knocked on more than 700 voters’ doors so far this spring.

“My conversations with voters along with our momentum shows that people know they deserve better representation,” explains Vare. “With community and campaign team support firmly in my corner, I am focused on listening to every voice and earning every vote in November.”

Vare is a business owner who is dedicated to public service. She proves it through her active roles with community non-profits, public education advocacy organizations, and as an at-large member of Fishers City Council. Vare was the first Democrat elected to municipal office in the city of Fishers and won her election with strong bipartisan support, including an endorsement from the Fiscal Conservatives of Hamilton County.

Vare maintains clear focus on ideals of transparency, balance, and representation. She achieves the ideals by listening to neighbors, residents, and constituents she serves. Vare embraces her reputation for shining a light on decisions others would prefer to leave behind closed doors. An unapologetic independent thinker, she always returns to and keeps the promises she made to those who elected her.
