An editorial published Thursday noted that Gov. Mike Pence ordered a review of state economic development incentives awarded to Mainstreet Property Group, a Hamilton County company co-founded by Rep. P. Eric Turner and operated by his son, Zeke Turner.
The review was announced by the Indiana Economic Development Corp. on April 8. On May 7, IEDC board member John Mutz reported that the deal with Mainstreet meets all of the qualifications that we subject each deal to. Mutz said the IEDC Policy Committee agreed unanimously that there was no conflict of interest.
I am delighted a company founded in our state is on such a tremendous growth trajectory, Pence wrote in a letter sent to inform Zeke Turner of the results of the review. My administration looks forward to working with Mainstreet as it continues to grow and employs more Hoosiers.
Mainstreet received $345,000 in economic development incentives tied to its relocation from Cicero to Carmel.
