Jim Shella / Special to IBJ
Mitch Daniels is leaving office because of a term limit. As he departs at the end of his second four-year hitch, a recent independent poll placed the Daniels approval rating at 66 percent, showing a large majority of voters still approve of the job he’s doing.

Ted Boehm / Special to IBJ
Pardon me for reminiscing on this 25th anniversary of the 1987 Pan American Games. Others have told how the Indianapolis “sports strategy” helped regenerate downtown, grow IUPUI, and establish Indianapolis as a major league city and a convention destination.

Teresa Meredith / Special to IBJ
Initially, I think Gov. Daniels should find a way to celebrate the great projects happening in teacher education.

MOURDOCK: Bring solid Hoosier values to bear on the processRestricted Content

September 1, 2012
Richard Mourdock / Special to IBJ
There’s a lot of sincere talk these days about compromise. Most Hoosiers honestly struggle with the question of whether we need to get tough on Washington and firmly stand our ground against business as usual or “compromise” and strike the middle ground. It’s a fair and natural dilemma.

Robin Winston / Special to IBJ
I am the parent of a seventh-grader who looks forward to this school year with excitement, hope and a sense of optimism. Unfortunately, many of her peers do not share those thoughts. I am particularly concerned about African-American males.

Sue Swayze / Special to IBJ
As pressure mounts from states pushing back on federal decisions and mandates, representation by their congressional delegations becomes increasingly important.

BENNETT: Sweeping reforms empower local districts to succeedRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Tony Bennett / Special to IBJ
When I took office in 2009, the Indiana Department of Education set high expectations for our children. My staff and I set ambitious goals for student achievement: improving ISTEP+ pass rates and high school graduation rates, having more students taking Advanced Placement exams, and increasing the number of college credits and technical certifications students earn in high school.

RITZ: 'Reforms' strip essence of public school systemRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Glenda Ritz / Special to IBJ
The definition of reform is to “make changes in a system to improve it.” The “reforms” under the Indiana Department of Education are not changes to improve our education system.

MUTZ: Break up the school building monopolyRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
John Mutz / Special to IBJ
Indiana school corporations no longer have a monopoly on public school programming because the charter movement has given families a choice. But charter schools do not have financial support from state or local government to build, remodel or lease locations for their schools.

BECK: Still lagging on early childhood educationRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Lara Beck / Special to IBJ
When Melina Kennedy ran for mayor of Indianapolis last year, childhood education was a cornerstone of her campaign. The issue caught the attention of parents, employers, educators and the media, and Kennedy made a compelling case for investing in our community’s human capital.

STYRING: Daniels could turn the tide at PurdueRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Bill Styring / Special to IBJ
Nearly everyone claims to have a strategic window into Mitch Daniels’ head. In truth, no one, including me, knows his plans for Purdue University when he assumes the presidency. Perhaps he, himself, isn’t entirely certain at this point.

Dear Mayor Ballard: You need to talk to your guys. They are not giving you the best advice.

TAFT: Invest through TIFs for brighter futureRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Bill Taft / Special to IBJ
The disagreement between Mayor Ballard and City-County Council Democrats over the use of tax increment financing sounds like a wonky tax policy debate, but behind this conflict are far more fundamental questions of how we use our city’s resources to prepare for its future.
More

WAGNER: Local politics transcend partisanshipRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Jennifer Wagner / Special to IBJ
Everyone loves to say that all politics is local, and it’s largely true that people get the most riled up about things they see or that affect them on a daily basis.

MYERS: A good mayor takes a cause too farRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Woodrow Myers / Special to IBJ
I like Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York City. He says what he thinks and thinks about what he says.

BONIFIELD: Government needs best, brightest, tooRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
Jake Bonifield / Special to IBJ
Government, perhaps even more than most private-sector industries and business models, is reliant upon human capital to thrive. Even as the tenor of most modern discourse on government has to do with its size, the people behind it are the single most important element in successful public policy.

August 18, 2012
Robert Vane / Special to IBJ
In an economic climate that can at best be deemed uncertain, and at worst catatonic, it is critical that the public and private sectors encourage and aid small-business entrepreneurs.

Anthony L. Fargo / Special to IBJ
I was hesitant to weigh in on the Chick-fil-A controversy, but I decided not doing so would be chicken. (Sorry—couldn’t resist.)

KRULL: Health care law now a reality for polsRestricted Content

August 18, 2012
John Krull / Special to IBJ
Mitch Daniels’ letter inviting the candidates who want to succeed him as governor to weigh in on how Indiana should implement parts of President Obama’s health care reform law demonstrates at least two things.

Mark Souder / Special to IBJ
Steve Goldsmith was one of the brightest men to run for governor of Indiana but he lacked a populist touch.

SHELLA: Why the Democrats ousted Pat BauerRestricted Content

August 4, 2012
Jim Shella / Special to IBJ
He lost the majority in 2010 and staged two failed walkouts in 2011 and 2012. That was part of it.

VAUGHN: Daniels won't admit costly FSSA mistakeRestricted Content

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
