Councilwoman To Take on Incumbent in Gary

7 Nov

by Ken Davidson

The Gazette has just confirmed that council member Kimberly Robinson will take on current Calumet Township Trustee Mary Elgin. While walking out of the Mayor’s office tonight, Robinson responded affirmatively when asked if she would challenge Elgin in the 2014 primary. Robinson was then seen speaking with a reporter regarding the issue. Sources say she may not be ready to announce at this point but the conversation was overheard by many.

Elgin is finishing her third term as Trustee and has come under heavy criticism for the high administrative costs associated with the office. Last year, Indiana passed House Bill 1585 which required the Trustee to cut the budget to 12 times the statewide average for townships or Griffith would be allowed to leave the township. Elgin recently submitted a 2014 budget that did not even address the mandate to reduce spending.

    Let’s not forget her mother stealing from the township.

    These political families and their kin need to sit down!
