WTTV Interview w/Fred Glynn

Sorry we haven’t covered the Carmel Mayoral Primary more in depth. But work and home life have had us a hoping. As they say “happy wife, happy life”. We just came across an interview that WTTV did with Fred Glynn as well as a story they have that discusses some of the complicated issues that have arisen during this campaign. Word is we may actually send old Jimmy Brainard packing! 

After an often bitter and contentious campaign full of scandals and accusations, Carmel voters will head to the polls Tuesday for the municipal primary.

Mayor Jim Brainard is seeking a seventh term in office, but has faced controversy in recent weeks after his Republican primary opponent Fred Glynn accused the Brainard campaign of bribery.

Brainard has also been accused of misconduct in recent weeks by the city's clerk-treasurer who is supporting Glynn in the primary. Brainard has denied the accusations, but would not agree to do an interview about the campaign and the controversies that have emerged in recent weeks.

Brainard was first elected mayor in 1995, and since then has led the suburban Indiana city through a period of unprecedented growth and development.

In the video above, we ask Glynn about the tone of this year's race and his hopes for Tuesday's primary.

We would like to encourage all our readers to go out and support Fred Glynn for Carmel Mayor. Let’s win this one for Gary Welsh!

Kara Kenney’s Reports On Fred Glynn’s Challenge to Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard

Fred Glynn talking to RTV6’s Kara Kenney

One of the best reporters in Indiana Kara Kenney has a story tonight covering Fred Glynn’s Carmel Mayoral Campaign. From Kara Kenney’s report:

A Hamilton County councilor is seeking to unseat longstanding Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard in Tuesday’s primary election.

Brainard was first elected mayor of the City of Carmel back in 1995.

The City of Carmel is consistently voted one of the best and safest places to live in the country . Fellow Republican and challenger Fred Glynn said it could be even better.

"We need new leadership,” Glynn said. “He's been in there for 24 years. We need some fresh thinking and new ideas.”

“We need to stop racking up debt and stop pushing for density,” Glynn said. “What is Carmel going to look like in 10 years? That’s the question.”

Glynn pointed to public private projects, such as hotels, that are paid for with city bonds.

“We’ve got to stop giving our money away to developers,” Glynn said.

Glynn shared a 2017 report from S&P Global that said Carmel’s long-term debt grew by over $300 million in just three years.

“The annual debt costs are already high, and are estimated to grow 71% by 2022,” read the report. “The city doesn’t have a high reserve cushion, relative to the size of annual debt services, to carry it through extended stressful periods.”

“My concern is we’re racking up the credit card and the credit card is maxed out,” Glynn said. “That debt has got to be paid.”

“Do you want to be surrounded by apartments and have development shoved down your throat or do you want someone who is going to work with the community and consider every stakeholder that's involved,” said Glynn. “That's what kind of leader I will be. "

Glynn said if elected, this is what he plans to accomplish in his first 100 days in office:

  • Host the first-ever small business advisory committee summit to advise the mayor’s office on the needs the city’s small business owners.
  • Implement a 180-day freeze on new downtown development to allow for a long-range traffic and population density study.
  • Send a priority-based, truly balanced budget to the Carmel City Council.
  • Sign an executive order to provide funding to hire additional police officers.
  • Send a debt-reduction plan to the city council that implements a plan to reduce the city’s long-term debt by 20 percent by the end of my first term.
  • Sign an executive order immediately halting future city government giveaways and subsidiaries to private development projects.
  • Send the city council a resolution to freeze the pay of all city-wide elected officials for the next four years.
  • Sign an executive order that strengthens sexual harassment policies for city workers and officials that includes harsher punishment for violators.
  • Have neighborhood liaisons in every neighborhood in this city and meet quarterly. We will once again put focus on our communities instead of focusing all resources and effort on a few square blocks downtown.
Mayor Jim Brainard was scheduled to do an interview with RTV6 on April 29. However, that day, RTV6 received an email from his office canceling the interview.

When RTV6 attempted to reschedule the interview, Brainard’s office said no.

IR has been hearing rumblings out of Carmel that Mayor Brainard is worried he might lose Tuesday’s Primary. We all would be so thrilled to see Brainard be giving the boot by the voters! We urge everyone out there who can to vote for Glynn on Tuesday and if you cannot please donate or volunteer for the Glynn campaign. Let’s win this one for Paul Ogden, Gary Welsh and every Hoosier patriot out there.

INDY REPUBLICAN Endorses Fred Glynn for Mayor of Carmel

Fred Glynn for Carmel Mayor 

Our readers are familiar with our intense dislike of Carmel Mayor Jim “Crash” Brainard. We as have Gary Welsh and Paul Ogden chronicled the shenanigans of Mayor Brainard. After a quarter century as Mayor of Carmel it is long past time for Jim Brainard to be booted from office. Fortunately we true conservatives and republicans have a candidate that we can be proud to support in Tuesday’s upcoming primary in Carmel. That man is Hamilton County Councilor Fred Glynn. Mister Glynn has served Hamilton County well since 2014. He has fought for government transparency, balanced budgets, and will fight for the taxpayers and against the pay-to-play crowd. Please go over to Fred’s site and to show your support and for more information about Fred

Please also visit this site to get in touch with some real Hamilton County Patriots. Fiscal Conservatives of Hamilton County need your support.

A Contrarian’s View of Senator Dick Lugar

Senator Richard Lugar

We are writing this post in the full knowledge that by doing so we may well come under extreme criticism and will be undoubtedly chastised for speaking ill of the dead. But the truth about who Dick Lugar was is true whether we say so or not. So we might as well say so. Notwithstanding we originally all of us here at IR had decided to say nothing regarding the now deceased Senator Richard Lugar. Given the degree to which the IR gang helped to defeat Lugar in the 2016 Primary. At first we all thought that we had said all we had to say on the man. Upon further reflection especially considering the uncritical and unwarranted adulation that has been bestowed upon the Senator. As well as the damage to our state, and our nation Lugar helped to inflict. We took the advice of George Orwell who said: “telling the truth is a revolutionary act”.  As well as John 8:32 states: “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” Also to do justice to the memory of the late great Gary Welsh, who like Paul Ogden helped to end Lugar’s 36 year reign in the Senate. And for the fact that Lugar was allowed to escape punishment for potentially 24 felonies, while Charlie White was crucified and convicted falsely on the bogus charge of one count of voter fraud. These facts notwithstanding the death of Senator Lugar MUST be aired. Paul Ogden has penned a good piece today on the Senator’s passing. Paul as always is candid, and honest. Paul has long been a valued friend and ally of all of us here. Paul Ogden and us are usually in agreement on the issues. In regards to Lugar we agree on many points. But we cannot offer nearly as much praise of Lugar as Paul can. 

Gary Welsh has throughly documented Lugar’s falsely claiming to have been an inhabitant of the state for 35 years while he was in the Senate. It is true that Lugar as we, Paul Ogden, grant Lugar did some good work on foreign policy. We strongly disagree that Lugar was a non tribal figure. Especially given his role in launching the political career of “Godfather” Governor Mitch Daniels who is the most tribalistic and cult like person to ever inhabit the Governors Office. Also no amount of good deeds will ever make up for Lugar’s corrupt conduct as Mayor of Indianapolis. Of particular interest is this account from the 1970’s of Mitch Daniels engaging in some questionable actions to shake down city employees to give money to Mayor Lugar’s campaign coffers. 

As lifelong conservatives and republicans we believe in the rule of law. Which has for too long been neglected by the bipartisan cabal that has control of much of the Hoosier state. And the fact that Dick Lugar escaped punishment for his misdeeds is a fact that will have to be acknowledged sooner or later. Seriously Lugar was allowed to cast votes from a house that he had not owned for 35 years, Mitch Daniels cast ballots using the address of the Governors mansion that he admitted he did not reside at. Mike Pence filed tax returns when he was running for Governor in 2012 stating that he lived in Virginia. Even though according to state law to run for Governor he had to have resided in Indiana for the five years preceding the 2012 election. Most laughable is Pence’s having voted from the Governor’s mansion in last years election even though he doesn’t live there. Sorry folks to bring up unpleasant facts. But until the Indiana press and federal prosecutors do their jobs and go after these creeps we are forced to air unpleasant facts.

Butthurt Snowflake Roy Moore Blocks Indy Republican on Twitter

Roy Moore Blocking Criticism 

Words has been going around on cyberspace that everybody’s favorite nut job and perpetual loser Roy Moore has possibly decided to run for office one more time in Alabama. Our readers might remember all the slings, arrows and insults we through at old Roy when he tried to slither into the Senate and failed. Just like Jason Voorhies in the old Friday the 13th movies who just doesn’t have the sense to stay dead. Roy has decided to come back for more punishment. His honor showing just how thin his skin is decided to block one of our correspondents on twitter. We were surprised because last time we did everything we could to get him to block us and failed. Regardless of what one thinks of Judge Moore his eagerness to block critics on twitter shows him to be a man with  no spine or balls. 

Here’s the tweet we sent to the Judge which got us blocked. Yes it’s a little childish and in poor taste. In our defense that’s why we thought Roy Moore would like it.

Fire at Notre Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

We have just heard the sad news that the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris has just collapsed as the result of an as yet ongoing fire at the Cathedral. CNBC has the story so far:

The roof of Paris’ famed Notre Dame Cathedral collapsed Monday as a massive fire ripped through the structure.

The city’s mayor and firefighters warned people to stay away from the area. There have been no confirmed deaths, according to Paris police, while a French government official said no injuries had yet been reported.

It was not immediately clear what had caused the fire, while local media reported that police in the city were treating it as an accident.

Notre Dame Cathedral built in the 12th Century AD and one of the oldest and most venerated churches in Christendom has also been a focal point in “Les Misrable” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. We all here pray that nobody is injured or killed as the result of this fire. We also hope that the church is repaired and rebuilt to continue standing as an enduring symbol of Christianity. It has always been a dream of the IR posse to go to the cathedral and to worship and pay our respects to our savior. Let’s all pull together and hope this fire is stopped immediately.
