Gibson County surveyor Michael Stevenson won re-election last Tuesday, earning his third term in office. However, Stevenson recently lost a lawsuit against the county.
"Obviously from a financial stand point we were hoping we wouldn't have to pay out any kind of settlement, so considering the circumstances, it's gone about as good as it could have gone for the county. I think the fact that he was re-elected on Tuesday is really a testament to the kind of work that he's done," Overton said.
Stevenson's attorney, Jeffrey Kolb, declined to comment, saying he would have to speak with his client to see where they'll go from here and if they'll take their case to the Indiana Court of Appeals.
