Andre Carson Makes It Official
U.S. Rep. Julia Carson's grandson, Andre Carson, has made it official. He's in the race to succeed 15th District City-County Councilor Patrice Abduallah (D), who was forced to resign his seat on the council after Advance Indiana disclosed the fact he was claiming an address outside his district as his residence. Carson is employed as a state excise police officer for the Alcohol and Tobacco Commission. An online Star report says Wilson Allen, a former township clerk for the Center Township Trustee's office and frequent commenter on this blog, is identified as the secretary for the committee Carson has formed to launch his bid to be chosen by Democratic precinct committeepersons. There are not currently any other publicly-announced candidates to fill the vacancy.
