The Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce doesnít represent the interests of me or my business. I donít support expensive mass transit proposals and definitely not ones that envisage rail. I no longer believe in or support TIF districts. I think the sale of the water company and the quadrupling of my water/sewer bills was practically a criminal enterprise, and I donít feel much differently about the parking meters. And I decided long ago that I would cut the Pacers loose and donate the field house to Indiana University. I think the ďChamberĒ uses its new members to fund its political shenanigans without providing much in return. And they fail to support issues which matter to me, which include decreasing the regulations and fees imposed by the city on business; particularly overreaching into property rights with excessive regulation. These types of regulations typically exempt players at the top while charging fees to businesses at the bottom. Burdening thousands of mom and pop rental property owners while exempting all the big players. Uneven treatment of property owners is going to land the city in Court, and if they start burdening the thousands of middle class black landlords with fees and repairs and regulations that donít apply to the Metropolitan Board of Realtor members, its going to land the city in Federal Court. These are the types of inequalities that the Chamber fosters through its policies and politics. It doesnít stand for small business, no. Definitely not. And real business in Indiana has always been small business. These guys running downtown Indianapolis are the enemy of small business. They enrich themselves with their politics. And then they go home at night to Carmel and Zionsville and Center Grove. They donít live here. But they tax us, regulate us, burden us with fees, and they use the money for business enterprise that enriches them. Period.
