Ed Coleman interviewed: Listen to the Libertarian city councilor who defected from Republicans

This interview gets a little deeper into Ed Coleman's situation on the City County Council.

Ed Coleman discusses:
1. The Mayor's office trying to silence him while still a Republican
2. The retribution the Republicans gave him before he left them for the Libertarian Party
3. The retribution he received after he left
4. The rules governing political parties
5. Whether or not the Council members read the ordinances before they vote on them

It is a fascinating interview and proof that the media really doesn't cover the city's business indepth.

Property tax has been serially abused; as a form of eminent ptomaine. The current strain is ejecting population from the entire state... of eminently declining revenues. Where the fix is easy, the will is weak. Message to government: stop eating (consuming your employer), lose the weight (your morbidly burdensome size) and realize that YOU IN GOVERNMENT ARE THE PROBLEM & NOT THE PEOPLE.

Subject: Thank your legislators who voted for reform

Friends,



Last fall Governor Daniels campaigned on a bold plan to move Indiana forward and is now working with legislative leaders to do so.

Those legislative leaders need to hear from you when they courageously take a stand to better Indiana.


Many voters underestimate the power of one phone call, but please don't. Defenders of the status quo are calling legislators, running radio ads, and seek other ways to keep our structure of local government just as its been since the Civil War era.

Senator Long and Senator Lawson's leadership were both crucial to passing out of the Senate recent local government reform and delivering it to the State House. Speaker of the House Bauer has said he will review the delivered bill and then decide if it receives a hearing.

Can you email or pick up the phone right now to thank your State Senator? All the Senators below supported protecting your tax dollars and making local government more efficient. Scroll down to find your senator. If you do not know who your State Senator is, click here.

Please let them know:

You know it wasn't easy, and you appreciate their representing the taxpayers interest
You are now going to work on this issue while it's debated in the State House
There are two months left in the legislative session and much to be done. But with Hoosiers like you making one phone call, submitting one letter to the editor in your local paper, and/or attending one legislative town hall meeting, we can make reform a reality in Indiana.



Thank you for your continued support,

Emily
