(La Porte, IN) - A former mayor of La Porte is being mentioned as a possible replacement for the outgoing Indiana Secretary of State. Currently, Blair Milo is a member of the Governor’s cabinet as Indiana Secretary of Career Connections and Talent.
Raepublican leaders have Milo on a short list of possible replacements for Connie Lawson, who announced her resignation this week. La Porte County Republican Party Chairman Mitch Feikes said Milo having experience as Mayor and at the state level of government would be an excellent choice.
Feikes believe Lawson did an outstanding job, but Milo has the makings to replace her. “She’s young, energetic and would be a great person to fill those shoes. I wish her all of the luck in the world,” he said.
Milo was mayor for about six years before leaving for Indianapolis at the request of the Governor in 2017.
