NEXT PROTEST RALLY: Monday August 6th, 5:30 pm
Hoosiers for Fair Taxation, along with other activists, will meet at the City County Building to protest city government's runaway spending. Will will rally in front of City Hall at 5:30 and attend the city council meeting at 7:00. Word is that Bart Peterson will present the 2008 budget. We need another huge turn out to turn up the heat on our unaccountable elected officials. Bring you signs and your unmistakable message that we are not going away.
The powers-that-be at the City-County Building soon will be getting their comeuppance from the Marion County Alliance of Neighborhood Associations, better known as McANA.
The group's board voted last week to draft a public letter calling for greater transparency and accountability in how tax money is spent and criticizing the heavy-handed way the City-County Council treated the public at the meeting at which it enacted an income tax increase.
Several board members said they were outraged by what they saw, particularly the fact that Council President Monroe Gray cut off debate after a half-hour and wouldn't even acknowledge a proposed Republican amendment.
