Anderson Mayor’s Son Hired

The hiring of an assistant Anderson city attorney is causing some to wonder if the move falls into a gray area of the state and city’s nepotism laws. Evan Broderick, the son of Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr., has been appointed an assistant to City Attorney Tim Lanane. Jodie Woods, general counsel for the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns, says there is not a violation if the hiree doesn’t directly report to his relative.
