Very disappointing in how Ballard is turning out. He is either taken in by politics or he was a politician to start with. He has forgotten the people that elected him to office. Here we are not making budget and we are still handing out one million dollars (or more) for the "arts". When he was running for office, he made a point of finding how much Indy was in debt. No word let from from the Mayor. Also disappointing was his appearance before the state to combat the gay marriage act. It seems today that if you put republicans and democrats in a bag, shake them up, they come out where you can not tell the difference between them.
