Nepotism is inherently harmful to the taxpayer in the fact that no one can be sure who is actually running the department.

As far as Mr. Gahan is concerned and although his decision to appoint Mary Ann Prestigiacomo as the City Controller may have been legal it was certainly, in our opinion, unethical.

It's still legal in Indiana to hire anybody for a local job, no matter how closely they might be related to the boss.

We ask our readers to contact our Representative Ed Clere @ 1 - (800) 382-9841 to vote YES for the Taxpayer Friendly Conflict Of Interest and Nepotism provisions in Indiana House Bill 1005.
