The Town of Fishers has hired the attorney firm of Barnes and Thornburg to stop the State Senate bill proposals that could make forced annexation in this state more fair to its citizens. While lobbyists are not uncommon, one must wonder if the citizens of Fishers expect their tax dollars to be used in this way. This is an example of the kind of free, unchecked spending that happens with a municaplity’s tax dollars. Is it any wonder why the citizens of Geist (and other unincorporated areas) have NO desire to be a part of a city or town that can so easily get away with wasted spending??? The same people who whine that life’s not fair because non-citizens use their roads are all too happy to waste their citizen’s money in ways seen and unseen. Fishers only regret must be that Jack Abramoff wasn’t able to help them out with their efforts.
