first_imgThe most recent “Readers Poll” results were most interesting? The poll question was “Who would you vote for in the Indiana Attorney General election.”  The poll generated 504 votes.  Embattled Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill received 198 votes and former two-term Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel received 186 votes. The most interesting aspect of this non-scientific but trendy poll was that 121 of our readers don’t want either to be the next AG of Indiana? Today’s “Readers Poll” question is: Who would you like to be the next President of the Evansville City Council? IS IT TRUE that Evansville and Vanderburgh County Indiana has always been accepting of a practice known as “political patronage” when it comes to jobs that are financed fully or partially by public dollars?…it has been so entrenched that a former Evansville Mayor whom we shall not name has been quoted as saying “I get all of the credit and they take all of the blame” to justify appointing his political supporters to jobs under his control?
