Surprises from the Marion County Clerk's Candidate List

I ran across a couple surprises from the Marion County Clerk's candidate list.

Roy Houchins, the Perry Township constable who is under federal investigation for influence peddling, has filed for re-election. He will have two opponents: Kevin Bandy and David Taylor.

In 2000, I won the Republican nomination for House District 94 on the northwest side against Shane Brinkman, the son of former State Treasurer Joyce Brinkman, who had also been a Republican state representative from the northwest side of Indianapolis. Shane, who is a union leader with AFSCME, apparently switched parties at some point. He is running to be elected Democratic precinct committeeman in Pike 25. Although Shane would probably prefer not to have my endorsement, let me just say Shane is a good guy. Hopefully he can straighten out the local Democrats.
