Indy Republican Mayoral candidate Chuck Brewer is sending a message to Connecticut businesses encouraging them to relocate to Indianapolis.

This stems from an effort by Indiana Governor Mike Pence to lure Connecticut business to Indiana in the wake of that state’s growing tax burden.

Brewer is a Connecticut native and he said in a statement, “even though people in Connecticut can’t vote for me, I want to send a message to Indy residents that I’m serious about promoting our city and we can be creative in doing it. Indianapolis is a city on the move and my goal as Mayor is to make sure we stay that way.”
