I recently completed my 2014 Legislative Survey for my state senator, Johnny Nugent.  I could not let the opportunity pass to express my displeasure with what has recently been in the news about Dearborn County‚Äôs long respected state senator. Here is a portion of what I included in comment section of the survey:
I was very disappointed to read about the lack of ethics that you exhibited recently in your business dealings in Dearborn County. SHAME on YOU, Johnny!  I cannot believe that you supported a $500,000 government grant to Zimmer when they purchased your business and continue to pay you $3,000 a month in rent. Please, do not try to tell me that you did not know this was a HUGE conflict of interest.  Shame on ME for supporting you all these years. I hope all that money you pocketed makes up for the loss of respect and what WAS your good name. So long, Johnny!!
