The former prosecutor said she has a lot of experience in bringing people together and hopes to use that experience to move forward.
“When you’re on a board, you’ve got to bring a lot of people together,” said Brooks. “I have over 20 years of experience dong that and I think we just need to work together. This county has some very serious problems we’re leaving this next generation. I think everyone realizes that and what can we do to develop those.”
Brooks will face state Rep. Scott Reske for the chance to fill retiring Republican Rep. Dan Burton's seat.
If she beats Rep. Reske, Brooks would be the first Republican female in Congress from Indiana in 53 years.
