The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) has endorsed AJ
in his bid to represent the near west and south sides of Indianapolis
for House seat 97 in the Indiana General Assembly. NFIB's mission is to: "... promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses.", and "NFIB's SAFE Trust PAC supports proven business candidates who have committed to keeping small business in business."
AJ's own company, Cause.it, closely echos the mission of NFIB. Cause.it is an application that helps small businesses connect with, and donate to causes in their community. It organizes and tracks all of the business's revenue and donations directly linked to a specific cause, normally in terms of coupons and special offers, and turns that information into hard data that the business owner can use to grow their brand as well as help their community at the same time.
As a small business
owner himself, AJ knows the challenges of running an business as well as
the importance that they have in their community. His goal is to fight
to eliminate red tape and free small businesses to grow and create jobs

Here's the intro for an interview I did with IndyPolitics in April. Click on the link below to access the audio. Each segment is about 7 minutes long.
A New Face for House District 97
They are both young, professional, full of energy and both running for House District 97 in downtown Indianapolis. Republican AJ Feeney-Ruiz and Democrat Justin Moed are running for the seat being vacated by State Rep. Mary Ann Sullivan who is now running for the State Senate. Both candidates say jobs and the economy are their main issues. And they both believe a younger face will help bring a new perspective to the Indiana General Assembly. Indy Politics interviewed both candidates this past week and has embedded the interviews here.
