Brian Sikma column
A native of Indiana, Brian Sikma has worked since 2004 to further the cause of conservative candidates and ideas throughout the Midwest. In 2006, he co-founded and led two different programs designed to increase the involvement of conservative young people in the political process in Indiana. Subsequent to this, he worked for The Wabash Group, a political consulting and public relations firm. He then went on to work as a Communications Director to Republican campaigns in the second largest media market in the state. Along with these jobs, he has contributed his time and effort to assisting state and local level candidates.

Throughout all of this, Brian started Reclaim Our Heritage, a small organization dedicated to informing and empowering citizens to take action and urge state and federal government to return to the ideals of the American Founding.

Believing in conservative principles because they are right and because they work, he has also contributed heavily to the rise of the conservative new media in Indiana. Currently, Brian is working to start an online strategy and public relations firm. He holds a degree in legal assistant studies from the Oak Brook College of Law and he continues to take part in pro-family policy debates along side of conservative leaders, organizations, and legislators in Indiana.
