first_imgIS IT TRUE on the other hand we consider 8th District Representative Larry Bucshon local field office staff ito be extremely aggressive and knowledgeable?  …whomever takes on Mr. Bucshon in the primary and/or in the general elections better have one hell of a campaign staff and a political war chest?IS IT TRUE the best Indiana State Senators in recent years are Joe O’Day and Venetta Becker?IS IT TRUE the most effective Vanderburgh County Coroner in recent time is Anne Groves?  …the current County Coroner Steve Lockyear is during an excellent job?IS IT TRUE the most effective Vanderburgh County Auditor over the years is none other than Indiana  Lt. Governor Susan Crouch?IS IT TRUE the former State Representative Larry Lutz did an outstanding job in that position?  …that Hollie Sullivan and Wendy McNamara are doing a creditable job as our State Representatives?IS IT TRUE that Perry Township Trustee Rick Riney has proven to be an outstanding public servant?   …Pigeon Township Trustee Mary Hart is considered to be the best Trustee in modern time?FOOTNOTES: Todays “READERS POLL” question is: Do you feel that the Veterans Memorial Coliseum should be saved from the wreaking ball?We urge you to take time and click the section we have reserved for the daily recaps of the activities of our local Law Enforcement professionals.

IS IT TRUE we find it interesting that Senator Donnelly is trying to appease the GOP leadership by backing some of their nominees in order to convince them that he is nonpartisan?  …the real truth is that GOP leadership considers Senator Donnelly to be extremely vulnerable when re-election times comes around?  …Mr. Donnelly may also be  extremely venerable because his local field staff seemly lack the follow through needed to launch a successful re-election campaign on his behalf?last_img read more
