Question Of The Day: Why Did Ballard Administration Turn Away Alternative Electric Car Sharing Proposals
If the mainstream media in Indianapolis had any investigative journalists left among them, they would be asking why the Ballard administration turned away other businesses interested in partnering with the City of Indianapolis to offer electric car sharing services to the public. Advance Indiana has learned that Mayor Greg Ballard's Director of Enterprise Development David Rosenberg refused to entertain discussions with at least two other businesses which could have and would have offered more favorable terms than the costly, one-sided agreement the administration entered into with Bollore's Blue Indy. One even offered the City a one-year pilot program free of charge to the City. Why was Rosenberg not interested in a less-costly approach to Indianapolis taxpayers? Was he given orders to limit his discussions to Blue Indy? If so, why? The public has a right to know.
