Public Officials Deviate Little From Private Consultants’ Advice

Public Officials Deviate Little From Private Consultants' Advice

Governor Mitch Daniels is recommending Eric Holcomb to lead the Republican Party.

New state property tax laws have changed how revenue flows from taxpayers to local governments. Confronted with unfamiliar territory, local government officials are spending thousands for private consultants to sort out laws and provide suggestions at a time when they’re also slashing budgets and cutting services. WFIU’s Daniel Robison has more.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
