So he was "appointed", just as Pat Ralston always is. Ironic. A lot of that goes on in Vigo County.

There is a difference between the Area Planning Commission appointing their Director and Pat Ralston being appointed to, say the City Council.

In the case of Vigo Area Planning, people apply for the job, applicants are interviewed, and a Director gets appointed. That person serves at the pleasure of the commission, and can be removed by them as Porter was. That process is underway right now, to find a replacement for Jeremy Weir, who took another job and left the Director position vacant.

While I'm sure you know that Ralston is the bank's appointee to many board positions in the city, I think the mention of Ralston here is more about his appointment to the District 2 City Council seat a few years ago.

Ralston was able to engineer that appointment with the local Democrats, who caucus to fill seats vacated by their party members when someone dies, quits, or is otherwise removed from elected office.

Funny thing about that appointment: it obviously did not reflect the public's will. Terre Haute voters dumped Ralston when the next election rolled around.

I find WTHI very educational: Every time the news comes on and pretends to do news, I turn off the TV and go into another room and read a book.
