"I am seeking this nomination because I'm a concerned citizen, like you," Webster told members of the Clay County Republican Club.
Webster, a candidate for Indiana's District 42 House seat, was the featured speaker for the club's monthly meeting, which took place at the Clay County Senior Citizen's Center, 120 S. Franklin St., Brazil.
Webster is one of three Republican candidates vying for the position. The other two include Jim Meece and Alan Morrison. All three had the opportunity to speak to the club prior to the May primary.
"We must elect a state representative who will fight for your rights," Webster said. "And I will fight for your rights."
While Webster said he believes state officials have made Indiana friendly to employers, he said more needs to be done, especially in the 42nd District.
"I will work tirelessly to bring jobs to District 42," he said.
Webster said he was interested in working with business owners, as well as educators and farmers, to create small groups within each county the district encompasses, in order to receive more information.
He said seeing a state representative at a local county commissioner's meeting might be a shock to some, but he believes it should happen more often, stating state officials should remain in contact with county officials.
"I don't believe enough of that goes on," he said. "I don't have a government knows best attitude. I have a we the people attitude."
Webster added he believes the federal government is constantly trampling over states rights, something he would fight against regularly.
"I will stand against these things," Webster said. "We really have to get a handle on this."
Webster also fielded questions from the audience.
