Today’s Washington Post reports that Jim Schellinger, an architect from Indianapolis, will run for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in Indiana. If he’s elected, this will be Schellinger’s first public office. The Indianapolis Star has more about Schellinger’s bid and his “notable” supporters.
It always warms The Dirt’s heart to see more architects, designers, and LAs ensconced in the halls of power. Incidentally, the same WaPo roundup gives an update on the race for an open Senate seat in Colorado that is being vacated by Sen. Wayne Allard (R) in 2008. The Post states Colorado Democrats have “coalesced” behind Rep. Mark Udall (D), Honorary ASLA.
