|Councillor Jefferson Shreve|
Yesterday, Jefferson Shreve was elected by Republican precinct committeepersons to serve out the remaining time on Jeff Cardwell's Council seat. That only tells part of the story. For the rest, I will urge you to go to Gary Welsh's blog and read the rest. I will also direct you to my friend Paul Ogden's blog for more of a follow-up.
The gist is that Welsh raises serious questions about Shreve's Marion County residency. Shreve defeated a longtime Perry Township Republican, Michael Kalscheur. Kalscheur is a Perry Township Advisory Board member and also ran for At-Large City-County Council in 2011. According to Welsh, Shreve only recently started attending GOP functions in Perry Township and yet somehow gained the support of the Ballard Administration and Cardwell. Did we mention he has deep pockets?
Oh the intrigue...read the reporting. It's well done.
