Republican councilor endorses Hogsett in new radio ad

By: Lindsey Erdody

A Republican member of the Indianapolis City-County Council has endorsed Democratic incumbent Joe Hogsett in his bid for a second term as mayor.

Republican Susie Cordi, who was elected to the council in 2015 and is not seeking re-election this year, is featured in a radio advertisement released by the Hogsett campaign Monday morning.

In the 60-second ad, Cordi, who previously worked in city government under former Republican mayors Bill Hudnut and Steve Goldsmith, talks about her current job as a school bus driver and working with Hogsett during her time on the council.

She describes Hogsett, who also won election in 2015, as a fiscal conservative and mentions that the city has had a balanced budget for three years.

“I love Joe Hogsett,” Cordi says in the radio ad. “We’re lucky to have him.”
