Bowes Plans Run For Prosecutor
The first Democratic candidate in the 2012 Marion County prosecutor's race has emerged. It's Marion County Assessor Greg Bowes, a former City-County Councilor. People hoping that he would be focusing all of his energy on improving the quality of assessments following the elimination of township assessors and consolidation of their work into his office might be disappointed. But he's more disappointed in Carl Brizzi's performance. "I've been disappointed with the effectiveness of the Brizzi prosecutor office," Bowes, 49, told the Star. "It really is heartbreaking to see our community not be as safe as it could be. I believe we need stronger leadership." According to the Star, Bowes has worked as a criminal and civil attorney and has six months' experience handling felony drug cases in the prosecutor's office in the early 1990s.
