Indy readers select John Engen as their favorite politician every year, yet we still find it easy to praise him. There’s a lot to talk about. For instance, his staff has to practically force him to take vacations. Left on his own, Engen will keep a break-neck schedule filled with putting out political fires, ensuring municipal priorities are implemented and presiding over what seems to be an endless stream of community events, including Pet Fest’s Wiener Dog Dash. It doesn’t matter where you hang in the Garden City, odds are you’ll find the affable mayor presiding over some event.
