MINORITY CONTRACTORS TOLD THEY MAY LOSE CONTRACTS IF THEY DON'T SUPPORT DEMOCRATS

Once again, Advance Indiana nails it and spills the beans that former Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Robin Winston sent a letter to every minority business owner in Indy and suggested that if they don't make sure the democrat councilpersons don't get re-elected that their city contracts could disappear.

Gary reports that three african american republicans are running for council.

Here's the letter that was sent to all the minority owned businesses:

"We hope that all is well with you.

Do you agree that we need leadership on the Indianapolis City/County Council that reflects the diversity of our community?

Don't you agree that it is important to have our voices heard in City government?

We hope that you do and that you will join us for a fundraising reception for the Democratic candidates for the City/County Council. Our reception will be held on Wednesday, October 3rd from 5:30PM-7PM here at the offices of the Winston/Terrell Group (1449 North Pennsylvania Street in downtown Indianapolis).

Joining us for the reception will be Council President Monroe Gray and the members of the City/County Council team seeking election this November.Your donation of at least $100 will enable the team to help get the message out that their progressive leadership matters in areas such as support for minority and women-owned businesses, better relations with our Hispanic community, relationships with our faith-based community and support for our children and
families.

These members work everyday to make sure that the playing field is level and that the City serves all areas of our community.They will be working with Mayor Peterson on the continued improvement of our community. However, if they lose a Democratic majority on the Council, priorities can change and some of the issues that matter to all of us could be put on the back burner. I am sure that you will agree that we cannot afford to let that happen.

That's why we are asking you to join us in supporting our Democratic members of the Council.Can we count on you to join us on October 3rd at 5:30PM to keep Indianapolis moving forward? If so, please call any of us at 317.917.1953 or email robin@winstonterrell.com to RSVP. We ask to hear from you by Friday, September 28th.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Robin

Who are these minority business's? I think the Republicans should write their own rebuttal letter. In case they don't, I will:
Dear Minority Business Owner:
You just received an insulting letter to your intelligence from Mayor Peterson and Company. They think you are too stupid and inept to get contracts on your own merit with Republicans on the Council. They think you are too stupid to see through this threat. They think because they slap your back and call you by name at this fundraiser that you will always be in their camp no matter how many times they have sold you out behind the scenes. Drink their wine, and shake their hands but wise up and vote them out.
Sincerely,
Observing taxpayer MB

C'mon! Monroe needs to get his Back-Ho out of hock. If we let him have some stolen bon-bons, he may dig a deeper hole for Bart and the rest of his cronies!

We're going to protest this fundraiser. Watch for an announcement. We're showing up to video tape and photograph everyone who comes and goes from the building.

(Watch for Kobi Wright -- city corporate counsel -- try to tell us it is illegal and against state law to take a photo of someone on the street)
