Who I am voting for November 7th and why, part 7

State Treasurer

Democratic candidate Michael Griffin. His education background is a BS in Religion and Political Science and he has a Masters in Public Admin Affairs. He is a Clerk Treasurer currently. He teaches at Ivy Tech.

Republican candidate Richard Mourdock. He has an impressive resume as a business executive, environmental consultant, and geologist. His education is in the sciences. He has no education in business or accounting.

Both men have interesting biographies. Neither has the education I would expect for someone running for State Treasurer. I would expect someone with more of a background in Finance, Business, or Accounting.

Both men have strong work experience. I prefer the background of Michael Griffin. His work experience is more relevant and I will be voting for him in this race.
