Democracy matters in Indianapolis council race

Congratulations Conrad! AfD Indianapolis Chapter contact Conrad Cortellini recently ran for a seat on the Indianapolis City-County Council under the banner of "Community Matters." Democracy was the first element under this banner, along with child- and family-focused support for communities, and sustainable development.

He was up against an incumbent Democrat who had the full weight of the local party machinery behind him, but Conrad still won a third of the primary vote, despite running an all-volunteer campaign on a shoestring budget. The campaign is encouraged by the showing and is considering a write-in campaign in November. You can learn more at
