Courageous Words at Tonight's CIB City Council Meeting: Gary Welsh and Councilman Ed Coleman

Last night's meeting was one of the top two dramatic episodes of city government I have ever witnessed at Indianapolis City Hall.

The two most principled dramatic performers were Councilman-At-Large, Ed Coleman and attorney blogger extraordinaire, Gary Welsh who publishes Advance Indiana.

As usual, Advance Indiana offers an enlightening detailed summary of the meeting, so I don't have to do the heavy lifting.

And while Advance Indiana carried the nuts and bolts of the reporting load, Paul Ogden offers additional insight to the meeting and gives kudos once more to our GOP defector turned Libertarian, Ed Coleman.

And here's a surprise for the readers of HFFT...City Councilman Ed Coleman agreed this week to take over as temporary publisher of the HFFT blog for me while I work on a major personal project. I am so honored to have a representative with real passion for service to The People to cover the real inside of city politics for our readers. He will round out the reporting with a few guest writers and sometimes I'll pop in if the pot needs a little stirring or some extra herbs and spices.

We'll make the blog transition soon.

P.s. Councilor Jackie Nytes asked some good tough questions tonight concerning the impact of some of the whacky taxation tactics Ballard is trying to put into place and how they would really affect Indy's citizens. I was impressed by Jackie's actions tonight. Her pencil was sharpened to a fine point!
