Carloni, Brittany. 2022. Hamilton co. mayors’ travel, costs in 2021: Fishers spent most with fadness’ trip to italy. Indianapolis Star, Mar 27, 2022. (accessed April 24, 2022).

The same month Westfield Mayor Andy Cook spent $16 on parking at a west Ohio Street garage in downtown Indianapolis, Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness spent $1,756.55 on Delta flights to and from Italy.
