The print version will not include “Is It True” or the “Readers Forum,  The soon to be printed City County Observer will offer a new free media alternative to the public.Its with pride we announce that the new Publisher of our soon to be launched printed edition of the City County Observer shall be George Lumley CPA and a past employee of the Indiana State Board of Accounts. Mr. Lumley is becoming well known and respected for his outstanding work on “Blighted Property” issues. Mr. Lumley as taken to task officials in the DMD and elected officials because of the decisions that they are making to fund “Blight” programs that are missing their intended mark significantly.When Mr. Lumley worked for the State Board of Account when they were doing more than just following industry accounting standards. He claims in the past they followed a stricter policy on what was a proper expenditure of public funds. If a Township Assessor paid his children that were under 18 to mow a township cemetery SBA made the trustee pay the money back even if the kids had actually mowed it because the law stated a trustee could not employ his unemancipated child.  So a trustee getting a $1000 stipend to oversee a small part of government function was often forced to pay it back. How times have changed.Over the last year Mr Lumley have brought to light the questionable expenditures that other State examiners had turned a blind eye towards.  We predict that the newly appointed Publisher of our printed edition George Lumley, CPA  will continue to expose questionable expenditures of the ERC,  Evansville Brownfield and DMD in the printed form. You also can expect to read a positive community newspaper dedicated to the progress of this area! FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
