Life In Straubville
There may have been plenty of money in the Public Safety budget for Indianapolis/Marion County to redecorate the offices of Public Safety Director Frank Straub and to hire a bevy of six-figure salaried employees to populate his newly-decorated offices, but police officers are told there is no money left in the budget for toilet paper, hand sanitizer, notebooks, pens and other basic supplies for the district offices. The image at left is a sign posted in a bathroom stall of the North East IMPD district offices warning users "there is no toilet paper" because "the city is out of funds." And despite Straub's top heavy staff, including his personal chauffeur, we learn that his staff neglected to file paperwork to renew a half million dollar federal grant for IMPD to combat human trafficking. Meanwhile, Mayor Greg Ballard continues to show he's in charge of Public Safety by hiding behind Straub's skirt pants.
