Governor Mitch Daniels was in Evansville Thurday night, speaking at the Southwest Indiana Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner.
Earlier on Thursday, he spoke to a business class at USI.
The Governor, who is finishing his final term in office, talked about the strength of Indiana's economy Thursday night. He also said he supports a voter's rights to decide on consolidation this Fall.
Daniels says Indiana is one of the top ranking business states in the country. He also says a surplus for the fiscal year, will mean an automatic taxpayer refund next year.
"Better to let it stay in the pockets of the person who earned it, than burn a hole in the pockets of government," Daniels said.
Also in his comments, the Governor said he supports the discussion of city-county consolidation.
"Consolidation, in Indianapolis, has been a huge part, really an essential part of the city coming over the decade from 'India-No-Place' to 'Super Bowl City,'" Daniels said.
The Governor stopped short of saying he supports consolidation, saying each community needs to decide for itself.
"I'm bashful about telling anyone how to vote," he said. "I will say it's a really good thing that Evansville has the shown the leadership to, at least bring this to the people, so they can make the choice."
'Yes for Unification' supporters say they know how important the consolidation vote is on the November ballot.
On Thursday, they applauded the Governor's comments.
"It's always nice when somebody as prominent as the Governor of the state recognizes the effort your community has done in trying to move the community forward into the future," said Vanderburgh County Sheriff Eric Williams.
"We are out in front of the rest of the state, and he is right that virtually every other major city in the state of Indiana is watching us," said President of the Redevelopment Commission Ed Hafer
Those not in favor of consolidation told 14 News they do not agree with the Governor's statements.
They say consolidation has led to higher taxes and less representation in Indianapolis, and has led to people moving out of Marion County.
