Porter County's Treasurer announced today that he will resign effective July 25th. Mike Bucko told the Region News Team he is resigning because, as he approaches 70 years of age, he feels its is time to step down and enjoy life with his wife of 44 years. Bucko says the changes to the public employee retirement fund was another motivating factor, which he says would have reduced his pension twice if he stayed until the end of his term, so he felt it was time to pass the baton and leave things in the hands of more qualified, capable and younger Democrats.
A Democratic party caucus to find a replacement for Bucko has been scheduled for July 26th.
