Ballard shows Thanks Throws Good Will Party

Saturday, 1-19-08
It was a family afternoon open Luau despite 20 degree weather that saw many Hoosiers greeted by newly elected Mayor Ballard of Indianapolis. Plenty of hot food, games for children, and stage entertainment Hawaiian style with neck lays and drums went non stop from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Pavillion. A waiting line for Hoosier well-wishers remained constant for those wanting photo-opts, offer their hopes, and wish he and his wife Winnie and children their support. Not a politician but a man of the people, this Marine made himself unselfishly available and was not the time for speechmaking or political rhetoric.

Tax Repeal Activists, new City Council members, the Mayor’s newly appointed team, and neighborhood associations together with grass roots supporters agreed it was a new chapter in Indy’s life. Among those:

Dave Bond-‘StopIndiana.com (Stop taxing our property)
Kent Smith- Vice President of City County Council
Greg Wilson- Director Minority affairs
Ryan Vaughn- City County Council
Tim and Allison Maguire, both recent recipients of Libertarian Scholarships to Washington DC.
