Democrats win prosecutor's race, other Marion County seats

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Democrat Terry Curry has been elected Marion County prosecutor, defeating Republican candidate Mark Massa in a close race.

Curry was leading Massa 52 percent-48 percent with 95 percent of precincts reporting late Tuesday night.

Curry said Massa called to concede the race about 9:15 p.m.

The new prosecutor will replace Republican Carl Brizzi, who is leaving the office amid controversy.

Brizzi issued a statement congratulating Curry on a "well-executed campaign" and said he is "offering complete and full cooperation to make your move seamless while avoiding any missteps or lapses, thereby ensuring the citizens of Marion County are fully served throughout this changeover."

Democrats gained control of the prosecutor's office after 16 years of GOP dominance. The party also retained control of other countywide offices, including Marion County sheriff, county clerk and auditor.

Marion County Sheriff's Department Col. John Layton defeated Republican Dennis Fishburn 56 percent to 44 percent in the sheriff's race. Fishburn is a detective-sergeant with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Term limits prevented current Sheriff Frank Anderson from seeking reelection.

County Clerk Beth White was reelected 55 percent to 45 percent over GOP challenger Jana Scott. And Democratic Auditor Billie Breaux won 51 percent of the votes in that race, besting two opponents.

  • Thank the Voters for ousting Corrupion,
    The GOP never thought that the people would ever hold them accountable for their inherrent corruption. Mitch and the boys have stepped in before and they were counting that they could bully the people of Indianapolis to accept the corrupt status quo
    Now to get rid of the corrupt Ballard and his out of state big interest groups and the millionares the tax payers must support.
  • Too Bad
    The Republican Party and citizens of Marion County got screwed by Brizzi, Durham and Bales. Had the Republican Party been more vocal about pushing Brizzi out they might have had more success. Brizzi is an arrogant crook. I hope Curry, or anyone, opens up an investigation into Brizzi, Bales and Durham and they all land in jail.
  • How Massa could have won
    Dear Mark

    just think: had you demanded the arrests if Tim Durjam (who can now take credit for almost singlehandedly ruining the Marion Count Republican Party) and Carl Brizzi ( insider taxing on Cellstar And Red Rock Pictures in addition to the stunts he has pulled over the years to help Tim) you might actually have been perceived to have some integrity.

    I guess it's true that a man who cheats on his wife is lacking in morals. You are lacking in much more.

    The reign of terror has ended. Congrats to Terry Curry for running a clean campaign and for his commitment to clean up Indy.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
