What a cop out. Wasn't this guy investigated for sexual misconduct (or something like that) with one of his employees?

He should have done this months ago. Certainly no big loss.

Since: Sep 07

Town mayor to Army specialist...That's quite the career change.

Somehow I'm thinking the paychecks aren't even going to be close to each other. I wonder if Mrs Zumer knows this.

crawfordsville can't be turned around, there's nothing TO turn around. The only people actually moving into crawfordsville don't even speak english.

Bigot. You imply that non-English speakers are riff-raff?

Even if you are right, there's nothing wrong with Crawfordsville. They have the best Pizza Hut in the world (no joke) and you've obviously never been to Dari-licious! Personally I enjoy their Strawberry Festival. It is my understanding that they have an outstanding school system and their high school guidance counselors recently received some state-level awards.

Like Marion County, they seem to suffer from chronically high taxes. If there is an exodus, do you think it could be for the same reason as in Marion County?

Rock on, C-ville!

And refresh my memory, what's in Anderson other than traffic on I-69? Probably no more or less than in Crawfordsville.

Most people here in C'ville wish John Zumer the best of luck. My only disappointment is that he hasn't finished what he agreed to start with his mayoral campaign and is "signing off" before his term is up.

Anderson has its problems, major problems, but thanks to how fast hamilton county is growing we're getting the overflow. Think Crawfordsville can depend on Lafayette expanding out far enough?

I hope the next mayor of Crawfordsville can communicate better and can bring better leadership skills to the position. Oh, wait... I hope we get a mayor who won't cover up a sex scandal, can keep city employees from stealing money and doesn't give loans to businesses who take the money and disappear.

Crawfordsville native, here...

Yes, there was some alleged impropriety between Mr. Zumer and an employee. I cannot remember how/if it was resolved.

Even though I no longer live there, and my parents no longer live within the city limits and therefore can't vote for mayor, I'm glad that he's leaving.

Zumer's politics, while definitely not as rabid as those Lefties in the national spotlight, are definitely left-leaning. He wanted to force, governmentally, businesses near an up-and-coming business park to basically overhaul themselves in order to fit into an image. Heaven forbid there actually be FREEDOM in this country.

He was an incumbent defeated in a primary...what does that tell you about his popularity?

The Boston and the Bumble Bee are the best things at Dari-licious. Not going to find anything better anywhere.
