Indianapolis Mayor Ballard plans to cut city taxes! Let's give back to Indy & keep our food pantries stocked!

Local political reporter, Abdul broke the good news today that Mayor Greg Ballard is planning to cut the COIT increase forced upon us last year by $18 million! That means our paychecks will be a little bit bigger each week!

After all the work we did last year to help Mayor Ballard get elected, every one of us was happy to see a balanced the budget this year which previously operated in the red and constantly borrowed from the bond bank.

Can you imagine where we would be today if our former mayor was allowed to run another term with that sham of a city budget (complete with missing pages) in today's troubled economic climate? I don't know about you, but I am glad I live in Indianapolis, Indiana right now.

I think it would be fitting if once the decrease is in effect, if we all give back to our city by honoring the Mayor's recent request to keep our cities food pantries stocked.

Now more than ever we need to show the liberals that Americans are generous and we don't need to be forced through taxation to take care of the social needs within our communities. America is the most charitable nation on earth.

Is there another Mayor in the country that is cutting milions in taxes in the middle of these economic times? Let's hope the national media will report this.

Melyssa,

Stick to the script!! We Republican bloggers are out to get the Mayor. Or so that's what his advisers have been telling the Mayor.

Paul, my friend. I'm not a Republican blogger like YOU are! I'm a Libertarian who gets along with the real republicans.

Thanks for all you do!

And Mike Kole, I feel something in the air cooking with some sunshine on the CIB, you know that dark secret hole of OUR money?

Paul K. Ogden said...

Sorry, HFFT, I wasn't thinking.

Sunshine on the CIB? I want to know more. They are more secretive than the CIA.

Hurray for Mayor Ballard, and full steam ahead with the idea of saying "thank you" with some extra donations to the city's food pantries!

Paul, regarding the CIB I honestly don't know anything, but I feel it.

Please keep up your relentless criticism of the CIB and the other public/private entities in our city that access our money.
