SHAMEFUL! Democrat Councilors Monroe Gray & Joanne Sanders failed to show up for critical CIB Bailout Vote

Democrat Councilors Monroe Gray & Joanne Sanders

Politics in this town is filthy. I hate it. Few of our politicians put The People and the long term health of our city before party or their insider interests.

Tonight's city council committee meeting to vote whether or not to move the proposed CIB bailout was a 5 hour dog and pony show orchestrated by Republican Councilor Lutz, who as talk show host Abdul so aptly put, held his nose and voted for more tax, borrow, and spend madness that landed us in this mess in the first place.

Indiana Barrister, Ogden on Politics, and Advance Indiana offer detailed summaries of the night's proceedings.

Democrats Monroe Gray and Council Minority Leader Joanne Sanders did not even show up for this critical vote which will direct literally millions of tax dollars every single year. I guess they don't think you are worth their time. Insiders say they chickened out because they want to make this possible tax increase look like the Republicans fault come election. So in other words, they put party politics ahead of the future of your city.

Remember, that we the taxpayers, PAID for Sanders and Gray to be at this crucial meeting tonight. I don't think they even called in sick. SHAME ON THEM BOTH!

We will not forget their failure to show up tonight to stop the CIB bailout proceedings. There will be no mercy from the taxpayers on this matter. And you can bet, our memory is long.

One lone councilor, Angela Mansfield, was the only "nay" vote. She had the courage of her convictions to stand opposed. You can bet we'll remember Councilor Mansfield too.
