From our friends at Hoosiers For Fair Taxation today...
What: Metropolitan Development Commission Public Hearing
Why: Proposed $20 million to give to Kosene & Kosene Developers
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!

4/15/2009 INDIANAPOLIS TEA PARTY PHOTOS
Hat tip to BartLies.com at OneTaxBillFromHomeless.com for the cool pics!
The activist who took the photos was very involved in the 2007 Indianapolis property tax protests that turned over the city council and ousted our entrenched incumbent mayor, Bart Peterson
What: ALL Indy Defenders of Liberty Gathering (all almost 1,000 of us!!)
When: June 1, 2009 6:00 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: Hello Indy Defenders of Liberty!!
Since we haven't been together (as a group) since the March 13th Glenn Beck viewing AND there are almost 1,000 of us, we thought it's high time we schedule a meeting! Here's what you can expect:
6:00 - 7:30 Meeting
Speakers - We have a couple different speakers lined up to discuss topics near and dear to our hearts...the Tea Party, politics and the 2010 elections.
Discussion Panel - We will also have a panel consisting of "really smart people" to do a Q&A segment. We will be announcing the topics in a later email.
Small Group - We will have Duane and Dot Ott of the Muncie Meet-up Group come and talk with us about being a part of a Small Group and how really easy is to start and lead one. They will share their experiences and their suggestions on how to get started.
7:30 - 8:30 Coffee and Dessert
Meet and Greet - Spend some time getting to know each other!
Small Group Involvement - We will have tables set up for each of the existing Indy Defenders of Liberty Small Groups so that those wishing to join an existing group, can get information about the groups already meeting. If there's not a Small Group in your area/community, we have a table for you! For those who are interested in beginning a Small Group we will have a "guidelines and tips" information sheet on how to do just that! It really will take the fear and guess work out of how to get started. We'll get you signed up and on your way!
Keep in mind that we will not be serving any food other than dessert, to help minimize the cost of the event. (Mickey D's drive-thru, here we come!)
We are certainly looking forward to seeing old friends again and meeting new ones! Our group has come a long way in just a few short months, as has our country. Which is why it is so vitally important to remember that We Surround Them and We Are Not Alone!

We will show up and do our job to make sure that independent liberty-minded folks are there with educational materials and resources for the newbie activists who need philosophically grounded leadership.
I've been praying for multiple rallies of 5,000 or more people at the State House for months. God is answering my prayers by bringing me organizers who will do the work and foot the bills to carry Indiana's Tea Party tradition forward.
