Adams County Auditor Bill Borne has made public a sharply-worded letter he sent to the two men who represent the county in the Indiana General Assembly about $320 million in state funds that were overlooked and then reportedly found this year.
Borne, who will close eight years as auditor on December 31, 2012, and is an Auditor of the Year award winner, sent the letter to State Rep. Matt Lehman, R-Berne, and State Sen. Travis Holdman, R-Markle, who will be at work in the state legislature starting in early January.
