Fort Wayne Annexation Report

Hamilton County is not the only county to suffer significant forced annexations. In fact, Allen County and Fort Wayne are the seasoned veterans.

Fort Wayne Libertarian Mike Sylvester has a report on a series of pending annexations that affect thousnads of property owners.

Of note, while no elected official in Hamilton County has spoken in opposition to forced annexation, several Fort Wayne city councilors were elected on platforms that included opposition to annexations. These councilors are silent today.

What is it about being elected to office that takes a fiscal conservative and suddenly transforms that person into a tax-and-spend liberal?

What is it about an electorate that re-elects those who fail to keep their word?
