From Entrepreneurship to Public Service: The Journey of a Self-Made Businessman in Politics
Sid Mahant, at the age of 23, came to America with $850, the shirt on his back, and a dream, the American dream that anyone from anywhere can succeed with hard work and diligence. He worked a variety of jobs, from janitor, convenience store manager, nursing assistant, salesman, small restaurant owner, to truck driver. His path was filled with frustration, discrimination, and failure. Some jobs didn’t go as planned; his restaurant burnt to the ground, but his determination never wavered. The example he has always looked to is Abraham Lincoln, in Sid’s opinion, our country’s greatest President. He too, survived personal and professional tragedy, and his diligence saved our nation and ended the abomination of slavery. After moving to Indiana, Sid’s American dream came true. Sid built a trucking empire that began with a mobile truck repair shop that now employs over 400 Hoosiers. Sid decided to run for Congress to ensure that the opportunity for the American dream will always be a beacon of hope and accessible to future generations.
Sid has consistently given back to his community. During COVID, smaller trucking companies were on the verge of bankruptcy. Sid Mahant created a Non-Profit organization, Indiana Diverse Truckers Association, to help share freight, knowledge, and opportunity to keep smaller companies in business and viable.
One thing that members of Congress can do for their district is to work with cities, towns, and counties to bring back important grant dollars. Billions go unrequested or end up in major cities like San Francisco or New York only to be squandered. Sid will work to ensure that fire and police departments have the necessary training and equipment. He will work to bring back road and infrastructure grants. When you ask what your congressman can do for you, Sid can deliver tangible community support.
Small business is the backbone of our economy. Cutting regulations, taxes and red tape to keep small business owners working will be a major priority for Sid. Sid Mahant knows what it means to grow small business and he is in your corner.
Sid Mahant's experience growing and sustaining a small business into a large one gives us all hope that the American Dream is alive and well. Sid will work to ensure that this American Dream and its boundless opportunities will be available to future generations.

I believe we should give a chance to New Generation who are potentially capable and willing to make changes for the betterment of everyone. I am not against the capable representative but not in favor of Carrier Politicians either. The way our Economy is going, we need some serious “CHANGE”……. #change #Republicans #indianapolisindiana #Indiana #youngpeople #youngrepublicans #hamiltoncountyindiana #tiptoncounty #delawarecounty #madisoncounty #diversity #minorityownedbusiness
