Tom Spangler announced he will run in the Democratic primary for the Indiana 8th Congressional District.
Spangler, of Jasper, is an entrepreneurial small business owner of L.U.I. PLUS, a marketing and distribution company of quality commercial furniture.
Citing a willingness to use his small business experience to work together to cut spending and strengthen the economy, Tom is now ready to challenge and break the gridlock in Washington.
“I’m running because since 2012, Congress has only gotten more reckless and irresponsible and Congressman Bucshon is part of the problem,” said Spangler. “I’m looking forward to talking to voters about how I plan to take my business experience to Washington to cut out of control Washington spending and help our small businesses create jobs for Hoosiers.”
As the owner of L.U.I. PLUS, Spangler moved the company to Indiana in 2002. Today, it has customers throughout the United States and several foreign countries.
Spangler is a born-again Christian and has served as an ordained deacon for over 25 years. He currently serves as director of his church’s outreach program, a Sunday School teacher and assists with the youth program.
He and his wife, Penny have been married for 43 years and have two children; Amy Haas of Jasper and Thomas Andrew of Indianapolis. They have six grandchildren.
