La PORTE — La Porte County officials are asking the county attorney to step down from his position while he is involved in a lawsuit with the county auditor.

The La Porte County Council on Monday tabled a resolution introduced by County Councilman Earl Cunningham that calls on County Attorney Shaw Friedman to step down until any outstanding or intended legal actions are fully adjudicated by the courts.

How does it look when elected officials are defaming people on social media? Do you think businesses would like to come to LaPorte County with this kind public discourse? We deserve better from our elected officials!!
