Council members have personal stake in vote at tonight's meeting

This story is buried in the Indy Star today. Everyone needs to be aware of this. Please read the whole story and look at what the CCC is doing. There are some clear conflicts of interest in their votes to raise your taxes.

The City-County Council Administration and Finance Committee meets at 5 p.m.
today to consider a 65 percent income tax increase. For a person earning $50,000
a year in taxable income, the change would cost an additional $325 a year,
bumping the annual total to $825 from $500. The meeting is scheduled for Room
260 in the City-County Building, 200 E. Washington St.
Hoosiers For Fair Taxation feels that holding this important meeting, which could determine a costly outcome for the taxpayer bosses, in Room 260 is an insult to The People. Room 260 only holds about 50 people.
