There would be no need for tax increases if the following had not occurred:

Millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars given to wealthy billionaire sports team owners.

Multitudes of TIF districts.

Millions given to Ballard's campaign contributors to operate parking garages.

Ineptitude by city employees and the lawsuits they generate. Can you say BISARD!

Paying off stadiums that have been razed many years ago.

Thanks to the Ballard administration,the taxpayers are paying $57,000 a month for a building the city cannot use. Can you say ROC? Why yes you can Mayor Ballard!

Millions given to developers to develop projects the banks would not support.

Public investment into things like the Circle Center Mall.....which isn't doing very well. Bad investment.

Ballard's gotta raise taxes....When your city doesn't have enough salt for the roads during inclement weather....When your streets are in disrepair......That's when one must give 160 million dollars to billionaire sports team owners.

The mantra of the Ballard Administration seems to be;

Let's make Indianapolis Detroit in half the time!!

Ballard is preparing to travel on another junket to an exotic locale. He stops at a CVS to purchase a box of MAGNUM condoms. He goes to the register to pay for his purchase. The clerk says that will be 12..99 plus tax. Ballard replies,"Tax?' What's the matter? Won't these condoms stay on by themselves?"'

VOTE FOR REPUBLICAN MAYOR BALLARD!

HIGHER TAXES!
LESS SERVICES!
WELFARE FOR BILLIONAIRES!

CRUMBLING ROADS AND INEFFICIENT REMEDIES TO CURB CRUMBLING STREETS!

ALLOWING THE HOOSIER TAXPAYER THE PRIVILEGE TO PAY $57,000 A MONTH FOR A BUILDING THE CITY CANNOT USE!
