UPDATE: Mayor Ballard responded to the FOP endorsement of his opponent by saying it doesn't surprise him because he has brought about for "greater accountability":
"The news of the endorsement doesn’t surprise me. As Mayor, I have brought changes and greater accountability to IMPD through performance standards, merit-based promotional policies, and stronger behavioral policies. Constantly improving IMPD is the right thing to do and I am concerned that my opponent may undo important and necessary changes that we have made."As if there hasn't been enough exploitation of the tragic killing of Officer David Moore, Ballard's campaign is featuring his father, also a police officer, in a new TV ad endorsing his re-election reminding people of his son's death. I swear, some people are totally shameless.
