Valparaiso Police Chief Jeff Balon

Today: We talk with another candidate on the May 2022 primary election ballot: Valparaiso Police Chief Jeff Balon, who is running as a Republican for Porter County Sheriff. He’s a 30-year law enforcement veteran with experience as a police officer and as an administrator, who is looking forward to addressing the safety issues and concerns of Porter County. We bring back our conversation with northwest Indiana financial advisor Greg Hammer about the “Great Resignation” and if leaving ones’ job during the COVID-19 pandemic is a wise move. We have another conversation from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University. CareSource Indiana chief executive Steve Smitherman talks about their Medicare programs, as the open enrollment period has been extended to January 15th.
