why should any county get any money from the toll road. i see it as a republican buy off for it to get voted in. our govener wants to talk about ethics when he first got elected. i couldnt buy a few state employees a gift of apreciatoin. AND HE GETS A MOTOR HOME FROM A COMPANY THAT DOES BUISNESS IN THIS STATE. aND THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS OWNER DONATES A CHUNK OF MONEY 4 HIS CAMPAIGNE. AND AFTERT ELECTED HE DECIDES THE STATE SHOULD PAY FOR THE STADIUM. I CANT AFFORD 2 GO TO A GAME TO BEGIN WITH. THE OWNER OF THE COLTS SHOULD HAVE MADE THEM TAKE A PAY CUT SO I CAN AFFORD 2 WACH A GAME. NOT ASK 4 THE STATE 2 PAY FOR THE STADIUM. LOOKS LIKE PAY OFF AFTER PAY OFF IF U ASK ME. DITCH MITCH

Mad resident, as a republican, I can mostly agree with you on Mitch. I voted for him, but I'll be voting him out. The toll road deal is the final straw. Unfortunately, the politics of the colts stadium, takes place no matter who's in office. Evan pulled some scams too. Personally, the colts want a stadium, they should build it. I dont see where my tax dollars should go to a looser team, an I dont reap any benefits. It is an economic deal for Indy business, government outta stay out of it.

Exactly! Since when did sports arenas become a taxpayer burden? The Mayor wants 400 million now to shore up retirement funds. Why was the stadium built when the State and City lead the Nation in Bankruptcy? Do you go buy a new car when you dont have a job? Of course not! This appears to be a case of flat INCOMPETENCE without any regard to the welfare of the citizens. I am no longer a Republican either! I like Mitch cause he did something I really liked---he destroyed the Republican Party in Indiana. The Majority of citizens said NO to Major moves, but the legislators voted it in anyways---just proves we have no voice in anything. By the way, we is all the money?
