Editorial: Suzanne Crouch Should Consider Filing As A Republican Nominee For Governor

first_imgOn July 26, 2016 22 GOP Party leaders will hold caucus to select a replacement for Governor Mike Pence.  This committee have the rare opportunity to elect an extremely popular and qualified individual to fill the vacancy of former Governor Mike Pence who opt to run for Vice President of United States.  It is our opinion the person they should consider to fill that position is none other than State Auditor Susan Crouch from Vanderburgh County.Its important to point out that Susan Crouch hasn’t officially applied to be a candidate for the vacant position as the Republican nominee for the Governor of Indiana.   However we hear that many people throughout the State are encouraging her to do so.   Whomever is selected as the Republican nominee for Governor must be a person whom has built many meaningful political relationships throughout our great state over the years.  It’s our opinion that Susan Crouch has done that. That being said, we recommend that it’s time for Susan Crouch to seriously consider throwing her hat in the ring as candidate for the Governor of Indiana.Suzanne’s Crouch is an extremely principled person with a strong sense of personal responsibility. Throughout her political career she has helped the less fortunate.  She is very personable and trustworthily.Susan Crouch graduated from Purdue University with honors. She worked in the private sector as a realtor, stockbroker and small business owner.In 1994, she ran for Vanderburgh County Auditor, serving two terms (1995-2002).  In 2002, she was elected as a Vanderburgh County Commissioner, where she served for two and a half years (2003-2005) including President of the Commission.  Susan won both political position by an overwhelming popular vote.In 2005, she was elected, in political caucus, to fill a vacancy as State Representative on the first ballot, defeating five other candidates. She served in the House of Representatives for eight years (2005-2013). During this time, she served as Vice-Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee and on the Public Health Committee.In January 2014, she was appointed by  Governor Mike Pence to serve as Indiana’s 56th Auditor.  on November 2014, she was elected to a full-term, leading the ticket among other statewide candidates.  As Indiana’s Chief Financial Officer, Suzanne is responsible for accounting for the funds of the state’s $31 billion biennial budget, for paying the state’s bills and employees and making tax distributions to local government. Last year, she traveled to all 92 counties building partnerships with local government.In 2012, Suzanne received the “Public Policy Award” from the Arc of Indiana for her work with people with disabilities. In 2014 Suzanne received the “Legislator of the Year Award” from the Indiana Association of Rehabilitative Services for her advocacy for people with disabilities. Also in 2015 she received the Arc of Indiana’s “Executive Director’s Award”.  In 2015 she was awarded the City County Observer “Community Achievement Award”.In closing we hope Suzanne Crouch decides to throw her hat in the ring and run for Governor.  If not,  she shall still remain a positive and influential force in Indiana politics!  We wish her well either way!Footnote: Attached below is a complete list of the individuals in charge of selecting a replacement for Governor Pence.Indiana State Republican Committee To Determine Gov Pence Replacement1 Chair Chuck Williams [email protected] Vice Rebecca Holwerda [email protected] 219-322-87912 Chair Deb Felming [email protected] 574-298-92552 Vice Nick Barbknecht [email protected] 219-229-99993 Chair Barabra Krisher3 Vice Bill Davis [email protected] Chair Craig Dunn [email protected] Vice Barabara Knochel5 Chair Kyle Hupfer [email protected] Vice Judy Black [email protected] Chair Mark Wynn [email protected] Vice Ginger Bradford7 Chair Tom John [email protected] Vice Jennifer Ping [email protected] Chair Rick Martin [email protected] Vice Brenda Goff [email protected] Chair Jamey Noel [email protected] Vice Beth Boyce [email protected] Chair Jeff Cardwell [email protected] 317-964-5013State Vice Chair Misty Dees Hollis [email protected] 317-964-5013State Secretary Barb McClellan [email protected] 317-635-7561State Treasurer Dan DumezichFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

NYSEG customers to pay more for electric in October

first_imgThere is no gas-delivery rate increase for the first year. NYSEG says it has filed a proposed rate-case settlement with the New York Public Service Commission. In addition to this, gas-delivery rates will be increased by 0.8 and 1.6 percent in the second and third rate years. This will cause a monthly bill increase of $0.55 and $1.20 respectfully. The first-year rate increase is 4.6 percent, which translates to a 2.3 percent bill increase for NYSEG electric customers. The second and third-rate years, the company says its electric-delivery increase will be 9.1 percent each year, resulting in a monthly bill increase of $4.13 to $5.54.center_img NYSEG says the settlement will also provide customers with COVID-19 relief, support for clean energy, investments into aging infrastructure and more. (WBNG) — Starting in October, NYSEG customers will pay an extra $2.49 for their electricity. The rate increases were scheduled for May of 2020, but were delayed due to the coronavirus.last_img read more

Apartment oversupply to hit house prices: “I think there will be some collateral damage”, says BIS

first_imgBIS Oxford Economics says Brisbane’s inner city apartment sector is the most oversupplied in Australia. Picture: Richard WalkerBRISBANE’S inner city apartment sector is now the most oversupplied market in Australia and is at risk of inflicting “collateral damage” on house prices, according to a leading economic forecaster.The latest predictions from BIS Oxford Economics paint a bleak picture of the outlook for the city’s property market, with median apartment prices forecast to fall another 7 per cent over the next three years.Its Residential Property Prospects 2017 to 2020 report released today reveals unit development accounted for 46 per cent of Queensland’s new dwelling starts in the four years to 2015/17, compared to 32 per cent in the prior five years. BIS Oxford Economics senior manager Angie Zigomanis.BIS Oxford Economics senior manager Angie Zigomanis said Queensland’s employment outlook was likely to improve and population growth to strengthen in the next three years, allowing for some modest house price growth.Brisbane’s median house price is predicted to rise 7 per cent by 2020.Mr Zigomanis said Brisbane’s price advantage over the southern capitals also made it attractive from an affordability perspective.All capital city housing markets are predicted to weaken next financial year as a result of further lending restrictions to investors and rising new stock levels.Sydney’s median house price of $1.2 million is forecast to fall five per cent over the next two financial years. BIS Oxford Economics’ latest report predicts inner Brisbane apartment prices to fall 7 per cent by 2020.BIS Oxford Economics managing director Robert Mellor said there were likely to be flow on effects for house price growth in Brisbane as potential buyers opted for apartments over houses or elected to rent for longer periods rather than buy to capitalise on discounted rents. Fancy a freebie with your new apartment? Buyers pick up bargains as Brisbane unit sales slump “My worry for Brisbane is you’ll get some overhang in the housing market because if developers are sitting there with 10 to 20 per cent of stock on hold, some of them are going to be doing good discounts on their prices,” Mr Mellor said.“That’s where we get a bit nervous. There’ll be a proponent of first home buyers that would rather buy a bargain apartment than an established house.“There’s a real risk of potentially … contagion.”center_img BIS Oxford Economics predicts Brisbane’s apartment oversupply could impact house prices.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home4 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor4 hours agoHe said the inner Brisbane apartment market in the next financial year alone would see about six times the average level of completions seen in the two decades leading up to 2015.“Over the next six to 12 months, we’ll see reality set in and things will deteriorate rapidly,” Mr Mellor said.“I think there will be some collateral damage that might impact on high and medium density in the suburbs.” GET THE LATEST REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX HERE BIS Oxford Economics estimates 6500 apartments will have been completed in inner Brisbane by the end of this financial year.It predicts another 9100 apartments will have been completed by the end of 2017/18 and yet another 6500 the following fiscal year.And he doesn’t expect supply to be absorbed before 2021.The report found house price growth in Brisbane has been patchy, with the median house price of an estimated $550,000 remaining below its June 2010 peak in real terms.But there is some good news to take out of the report.last_img read more

The 40 tonne axleload will come

first_imgbut track and train need common management’CONSIDER a new heavy haul railway with 40 tonne axleloads and high adhesion locos hauling frequent trains at 120 km/h, and suppose it damages your business. What are you going to say to your business manager?’ This warning from Harry Tournay of Spoornet was issued to nearly 400 engineers and specialists in the heavy haul freight business at the Sixth International Heavy Haul Conference held in Cape Town on April 6-10. Delegates had spent three days deliberating on engineering advances that would allow them to haul more tonnes at lower cost. While the iron ore market has recovered from the slump of the mid-1980s, thanks in part to rising steel demand in China and other booming Asian economies, Ben Alberts of South Africa’s Iron & Steel group ISCOR said that ’the price in real terms is in constant decline’.It was against this background that Spoornet Chief Executive Braam le Roux reminded delegates that the IHHA ’was not a very natural partnership because the customers are international competitors’. How refreshing then, that IHHA members are still willing to share their expertise in the unending search for the ideal wheel-rail interface where wear is controlled to the practical minimum. Much progress has already been made – in the last 10 years, according to the IHHA’s first chairman Dr Bill Harris, rail life has been extended from 600 million to 2 billion gross tonnes. All heavy haul railways stand to benefit from the unique fund of knowledge and research that exists within the IHHA, as do other railways with lower tonnages who experience the same wear problems over longer timescales.Le Roux urged delegates ’to push the limits beyond those which enable sound sleep’. This will require the courage to exploit advanced technologies, which could include automated train health checking, ’smart’ trains with on-board rolling stock monitoring and perhaps crewless operation, optic fibre rail integrity checking, and ground penetrating radar to ensure the subgrade is in good fettle. Perhaps the biggest challenge is to go beyond the 38 tonne axleload limit already being contemplated by BHP in Australia’s Pilbara, with 40 tonnes and beyond forming the quantum leap that Tournay saw as missing in topics up for debate at the conference.In contemplating the advance beyond current axleload limits, Harris warned that it was ’imperative to treat the railway as a system’ and cited the cost in terms of track wear in North America in the 1970s after many railroads introduced so-called 100 ton cars (loaded weight 119·3 tonnes) – ’it wasn’t long before the subgrade let us know that it wasn’t very happy’. Outgoing IHHA Chairman John Reoch considered separation of operations from infrastructure to be ’fundamentally flawed’, a view supported by Roy Allen, Vice President, Research & Test, at the AAR who pointed to rail grinding that had contributed to a spate of derailments affecting double-stack trains.It will be instructive to see how aspiring IHHA members in Sweden (operator MTAB and infrastructure authority Banverket) handle the planned upgrade to 30 tonne axleloads on the Luleå – Kiruna – Narvik line; the price of getting it wrong could be high. To find out what transpires, rendez-vous in Russia in 1999 for the IHHA’s next specialist technical session on the wheel-rail interface. olast_img read more
