Tobias Out As Airport Authority President
A little more than year after his appointment by Mayor Greg Ballard, Indianapolis Airport Authority President Randall Tobias is stepping down. Why? He's moving to Hamilton County. Who is taking his place? Michael Stayton. Who is he? A former executive of the now-infamous Indianapolis Water Company and close friend of Jim Morris, another former water company executive who is now the chief executive of the Indiana Pacers organization. Ballard still plans to let Tobias sit on the board until he officially changes his residency to Hamilton County. Why are all of the wealthiest residents of Marion County continuing to flee into Hamilton County? Any wonder why, Mayor Ballard, the grassroots supporters who elected you have no confidence in your government?
