About Us

In 1981, Don Wilson established Wilson Advertising. In August 1989, he founded the Kokomo Perspective, a weekly newspaper focused solely on reporting Howard County events and their impact on local residents. In 2016, local attorney Brian Oaks purchased the paper. For the past 29 years, the Perspective has grown to become the most dominant media source in Howard County, according to market surveys.

House Bill 1279, authored by state Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, would give the RDA authority to create a "nonprofit entity" that could "solicit and accept private or public funding" to carry out the RDA's goal to spur projects in the Transit Development Districts that are being created in anticipation of the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District's double-track and West Lake Corridor projects.
