I did a quick search of the city website and found 6 individuals that are current city employees and running for the Huntington Common Council. With HB 1022 - Bill limiting makeup of councils advances makes its way through the Indiana General Assembly and by all accounts, will become law, let's stop this blatant conflict of interest before it becomes law. If I am missing anyone, please let me know an I will check it out and get the names posted.
Kole Hacker (Running Common Council District 1) - Patrol Officer, Huntington Police Department
Bridgette Burkhart (Running for Common Council District 4) - Office Manager, Huntington Fire Department
Brian Sills (Running for Common Council District 2) - Asst. Superintendent, Huntington Water Dept.
Bradley Borntreger (Running for Common Council District 4) - Huntington Street Dept.
Steve McIntyre (Running for Common Council District 3) - Part-time police Dispatch: I spoke with Steve McIntyre and released this statement; "If I have the honor of being re-elected and HB1022 passes and becomes law, I will resign my position as a part-time police dispatcher and continue to serve the fine people of 3rd District."
Here is a link to HB 1022
