Brizzi Hires Outside PR Firm
Instead of replacing his spokesman who had to resign after being busted for a DUI, Marion Co. Prosecutor Carl Brizzi has hired an outside public relations firm at $6,500 per month to handle media inquiries. The Star's Jon Murray notes the new contract with Hirons & Company, which also has a no-bid contract with the Mayor's office. The firm employs Mayor Greg Ballard's son as a copywriter. According to Murray's report, Susan Decker is handling the account on behalf of the firm.
