    Mayor Brainard you are a long time supporter of Transit. Where is Your Leadership on this issue?

    You made a similar statement in 2011 after the election “It’s going to make central Indiana more competitive and improve the quality of life,” said Mayor Jim Brainard (R-Carmel). http://www.wthr.com/story/16317741/new-mass-transit-plan-outlined-for-central-indiana
