After assessors, what's next?

Indiana voters this week in effect fired most of the remaining township assessors after the Legislature merged the vast majority of their work into county-level assessor offices earlier this year.

But many of the recommendations from the report on local government reform issued a year ago by former Gov. Joe Kernan and Chief Justice Randall Shepard are nowhere near accomplished.

High on the list is creating county-level chief executives and consolidating county auditors, recorders, assessors, surveyors, sheriffs and coroners under the new office.

Reorganizing the duties would make government more efficient and effective, the report said.

Voters clearly are interested in change, overwhelmingly returning Mitch Daniels to office after a first term of turning the state upside down, and opting for Barack Obama.

What are the odds for seeing more of the Kernan-Shepard report carried out in the next General Assembly?
  • My Man Mitch for President in 2012 ...?

    Or perhaps he replaces a retiring / deceased Senator Lugar?

    My Man Mitch's RV and Bush43 appointment will make him look ATROCIOUS on the national stage, but his results speak for themselves.

    Daniels, Pence, Pawlenty, Jindahl -- the future of the GOP?
