Governor’s office closed for the dayFebruary 15th, 2013 at 1:59 pm by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
The governor’s office was closed Friday. The door to Room 206 in the Statehouse was locked and the lights were off. It’s not a state holiday.
A sign was posted in the window. It said simply that the office will be closed for out of office staff meetings. Friday afternoon the communications director for Governor Mike Pence responded to questions with an email that was just as cryptic. It says “The Governor, Lt. Governor and their executive staffs are attending a previously scheduled planning session off-site today.” Nothing more.
It’s been a hot topic on social media, with, among others, former aides to Mitch Daniels posing questions. It may not be a big deal but in politics appearances count, and the consensus at the Statehouse today was that this didn’t look good.
