Responding to Emergencies
During the current health crisis, Frank is leading by example to help residents of Northwest Indiana. He is promoting blood drives, delivering food to seniors and our healthcare workers, and coordinating emergency response capabilities through the Northwest Indiana Information Sharing and Security Alliance.
Trustee Mrvan knows what to do in a crisis because of his extensive experience in responding to the needs of individuals during trying times, such as when they need assistance paying rent, keeping the heat on, using transportation, or having access to life saving prescription drugs. This is the type of steady leadership that Northwest Indiana needs during emergency times.
Growing the Northwest Indiana Economy
Frank is running for Congress to create good-paying jobs and a Northwest Indiana economy that works for everyone.
As North Township Trustee, he has spent 15 years helping people find a good-paying job. His experience has focused on working to identify federal, state, local, private and nonprofit resources that allow Northwest Indiana residents to get a good-paying job, take care of their family, and succeed in a career that allows them to have a good quality of life.
As Congressman, he will use his years of experience to continue to work with all stakeholders to create more economic opportunities for everyone and help retain and attract investments to Indiana’s First Congressional District.
Advocating for the Health of People
Frank is running for Congress to advocate for the health of people – including the most vulnerable in our society, the elderly, our children, and the veterans community.
He has seen the challenges that face individuals and families who lack the resources to adequate health care. One of his main priorities as the Representative for Indiana’s First Congressional District will be to improve access to affordable health care options.
His trustee office has represented and advocated on behalf of thousands of people who came into his office struggling to secure access to quality health care, pay their rent, keep the lights and heat on, and take care of basic family necessities.
Frank knows first hand the struggles of vulnerable individuals in our region, including the elderly who have been in need of assistance paying for prescription drugs, pregnant women in need of care, children who have been victims of sexual exploitation, and veterans who have been in need of mental health services.
As Congressman, he will continue to be a trusted and dependable resource for all those in need.
Supporting Public Education
Frank is proud to have secured the endorsement of the American Federation of Teachers Indiana. As North Township Trustee, Frank has taken every opportunity to express appreciation to teachers and demonstrate to communities how indispensable teachers are to creating the next generation of thinkers and problem solvers.
As a Member of Congress, Frank will continue to be an active supporter of teachers and students, and he will continue to work to ensure that public funds are dedicated to support public education.
Additionally, one of his signature initiatives as North Township Trustee was the establishment of the No More Secrets program. In establishing this program, he collaborated with teachers, school districts, and Indiana legislators to create this program to protect children from predators. Specifically, this program facilitates conversations about body safety, Internet safety, and phone responsibility, and it currently educates, enables, and empowers all students in every k-12 school in Indiana. He would not have been able to establish this program without the incredible persistence and support of Indiana teachers, who shared his value of ensuring that resources are available for all students to be able to focus on learning, growing, and developing the skills needed to solve problems and be contributing members of our communities.
Protecting Our Environment
As Congressman, Frank will fight to ensure that our nation makes the investments that are necessary to protect our precious environment. It is past time that the federal government recognizes the value of science and the challenges of pollution and climate change. Workers of Northwest Indiana must have safe working conditions and produce the innovation and alternative energies that are necessary to meet this challenge.
