FISHERS, Ind. (AP) - An
Indianapolis suburb has renewed a $20,000-a-month legal services contract
with the wife of Republican Senate candidate Luke Messer.
The city of Fishers pays
Jennifer Messer $240,000 a year for part-time legal work she does from home
in suburban Washington, where the family moved after Luke Messer's election

Fishers' officials gave
final approval Monday to her 2018 contract.
She previously worked as an
attorney for Fishers through her former firm. But in 2015 she was awarded a
contract to work on her own for the city.

says it's a good deal for the city because she charges less than many
