Just When You Think Things Can't Get Worse...

"It is an absolute outrage that the Ballard administration is proposing yet another multi-million dollar give-away to a politically-connected developer at a time the City is struggling so much financially."

Yep. The boys on the 25th Floor are at it again. Read it all here, courtesy of Advance Indiana.

This Indianapolis Observer is wondering: just what is Mayor Ballard thinking?

The meeting is at 1pm on Wednesday June 9th. Let's go down to the city county building 2nd floor at 1pm tomorrow and stop it.

Let's raise some hell at City Hall.

Tax Activists needed to RAISE HELL tomorrow at 1pm - City Hall

Where: City County Building - 2nd Floor Public Assembly Room
When: Wednesday, June 3rd @ 1pm

Yep, this is short notice, but we need you to spend your lunch hour at the City County building Wednesday at 1pm to raise hell with the Metropolitan Development Commission. The MCD is a board of non-elected appointees who are itching to spend your money again.

Even though the CIB is coming up $47 million short without raising taxes, our so-called "People's Mayor" Ballard thinks we've got $20 million to give to a private real estate developer!

The city wants to give away another $20 million of your money to Kosene & Kosene, to develop property near the old MSA site. Kosene & Kosene is known as a pay-to-play developer according to Indy Star reporter John Ketzenberger's sources. Who knows what Kosene and Ballard's people are doing behind the scenes to get this deal moving so quickly.

HFFT has begun to alert the media who will likely be there. Make sure you are there and together we can stop this by making a big stink in public about it!

It's up to us to stop it. We CAN do this!
