The anointed Republican candidate for Indianapolis mayor, Chuck Brewer, walked into the Marion Co. Board of Elections and filed the necessary paperwork to make official his candidacy. I stopped by this morning to pick up a copy of his Declaration of Candidacy form to see which of the three voting residences he's claimed in the little more than three years he's lived in the Circle City after moving here from Chicago. Would it be that lovely luxury downtown condominium in the Athletic Club he purchased back on April 19, 2011 when he moved here in 2011 to open up his Potbelly Sandwich Shop on which he claims a homestead exemption? Would it be that apartment down in Perry Township located at 1452 Dakota Ridge Drive where he registered to vote after first registering to vote at 350 N. Meridian Street? Or would it be that other apartment down in Perry Township at 623 Slate Drive where he registered to vote when he planned to run for the District 23 City-County Council seat?
Chuck really had a difficult decision to make. Everyone knows where he really lives. That's the mighty fine condo at the Athletic Club where his former general manager told us take-out deliveries from his restaurant were frequently made. I stopped by the Athletic Club on my way home this evening just to make sure Chuck's name was still on the building's dial-up directory. Yeah, sure enough, "Brewer, C" is still listed. And since he just recorded a $380,000 mortgage on the condo with Wells Fargo on December, 29, 2014, that's where we would expect to find him bedding for the night.
UPDATE: There is a listing for sale for Brewer's Unit #607 in the Athletic Club shown at Realtors.com, which you can view by clicking here. The photo gallery shows a fully-furnished unit that by all appearances is currently occupied. The listed selling price is $380,000, which is the amount of the most recent mortgage recorded on the condominium on December 29, 2014. According to records contained in the Statewide Voter Registration System, Brewer did not change his address to the Slate Drive address until July 15, 2014. He cast votes by absentee ballot method in the 2014 primary and general elections through walk-in, early voting method.
