VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana county commissioner says she’ll
reimburse an engineering firm for flying her and her husband to Indianapolis
so they could attend a Republican Party dinner.
Porter County Commissioner Nancy Adams tells The Times of Munster she
“goofed” in accepting the free flight from DLZ engineering. She says she and
her husband accepted the May 12 flight to give her time to attend
county-related meetings that day and the next.
Adams says she thought she was avoiding any problems by paying for her own
tickets to the dinner featuring Indiana first lady Cheri Daniels. Daniels’
speech was highly anticipated because Gov. Mitch Daniels is considering a
2012 presidential run.
The Times reports that DLZ got the largest individual share of consulting
funds from Porter County last year, about $616,000.
