It’s time to Do Something Indy

“Not only would I be working for a person living in a box under a bridge,
but I would be working for that person living in a high-rise downtown.”

“I am pleased and honored to announce my candidacy for Mayor of Indianapolis. During the last 30 years, as a business owner in Indianapolis, I have gained a greater understanding of the inner workings of city government. My creativity will be paramount in getting things done without spending a bunch of money but with some better ideas and a better vision. The mayor should be struggling with people that are struggling and celebrating with people when they are celebrating. Instead of being ‘elected’ I would rather be ‘hired’ because I want to serve the city, rather than be served." John is running as an "INDYpendent" candidate, focusing on the needs of all of the people of INDY!

 As we all struggle with the pain of potholes in our city, I’m ready to #dosomething about them. I’m a leader, a builder, one who knows infrastructure and ROADS. Not only do I know how to build them, I know how to fix them in a way that will maximize the money the city has budgeted for roads, using contractors that have the latest in asphalt technology and know-how, and in a manner that ensures a longer driving life regardless of what mother nature throws our way. This problem is a critical emergency in our city. I plan to do something about it!
