PLYMOUTH â€” When this legislative session is over, Indiana residents probably wonâ€™t see much of Gov. Mitch Daniels for awhile.
Upon completion of his term, Daniels said not only is a Presidency run not in his near future, but he plans to just take it easy at home.
And when heâ€™s reflecting on his time in office, Gov. Daniels says he is satisfied with the way things have changed.
â€śI hope in the entirety that our time will have had an effect of moving the culture of this state in direction of change and leadership,â€ť Daniels said about his time as Governor.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter announced today the appointment of Sean Surrisi as City Attorney for the City of Plymouth. Sean will replace Nelson Chipman who has accepted the appointment of Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Marshall County. He will be sworn in March 1.
Sean was born in Indianapolis and moved to the Culver area when he was 11.
He is a 1995 graduate of Culver Community High School and a 1999 graduate of DePauw University where he majored in Studio Art. Sean went on to receive his law degree at Valparaiso University in 2005.
