Ballard Chooses War Memorial For Inauguration
Mayor-elect Greg Ballard will be sworn in on New Year's Day at the Indiana War Memorial at 1:00 p.m. No tickets are required for admission, but seating is limited to the first 1,000 people. He will be sworn in by Marion Superior Court Judge David Certo, who Ballard met during this year's campaign. No lavish inaugural parties at which only the high-rollers can afford to attend are planned as part of the ceremony. Hopfully, the "pay-to-play" mentality which has predominated past administrations won't infect the new mayor's administration.
