OPEN ITEM – Hoosiers Bid Farewell to Congressman Jacobs
Congressman Andy Jacobs will be laid to rest today after a visitation and funeral at the statehouse. The funeral service begins at noon. For those who are not able to make it down to the Statehouse, the funeral will be streamed live at this link.
Congressman Jacobs was a unique political figure who made friends and enemies on both sides of the aisle but was noted for his dedication to the people he served. While I did not often agree with the man’s policies, I have tremendous respect for his service.
On a lighter note, our new State Auditor, Suzanne Crouch, was sworn in to office yesterday. Crouch, who most recently served as a state representative but has held many political and governmental positions, will take office and will most likely be the party’s nominee for the 2014 campaign barring and bombshell candidate announcements.
The weather outlook for central and northern Indiana continues to look miserable – please be careful today and through the weekend as more snow is expected on Sunday.
