Jesse Bohannon, a Republican from northwestern Elkhart County, is an instructor at The Crossing Educational Center, an alternative school for high school-aged kids. He’s pro-life, favors expansion of the state’s school voucher program and emphasizes his conservatism. He’s for low taxes, low regulation and worries about the federal government encroaching on state powers. This is his first bid for public office.
