The General Assembly House Summer Study Committee met today in Indianapolis at the Indiana Government Center Auditorium. There was a very good crowd to participate in the hearing focusing on eminent domain and the Kelo decision of the US Supreme Court.
Indiana Libertarians were well represented there. I was able to attend for about an hour and was able to hear Mike Sylvester speak. He is the Chair of the Allen County Libertarian Party. Mike did a very good job staying focused and highlighting the abuses of the City of Fort Wayne in its use of eminent domain powers in the expansion of the Grand Wayne Center.
Also, present were Rebecca Sink-Burris, Secretary of the Libertarian Party of Indiana, as well as Mike Kole, who is seeking the Libertarian nomination for Secretary of State in 2006. Mike was accompanied by his wife, Ame, and their baby daughter, Isabel. Mike and Rebecca were both signed up to speak, but I had to leave before their turn to do so.
