Ballard is downplaying rumors he's interested in running against Gov. Mike Pence in next year's primary election. Ballard didn't dismiss his interest in running for political office again but says he's "not there yet." “I’m talking to universities and I got national water and energy companies talking to me. I’ve got a lot of that going on right now, but I’m still kind of busy doing this stuff for awhile.” Yeah, I bet you're talking to folks about high-paying, no-work jobs that are nothing more than a quid pro quo for the massive theft of our public assets in which you've been engaged the past eight years. We can thank our mayor-elect for the fact you won't have to pay for those crimes. I can't wait to see the list of downtown insiders Hogsett names to his transition team, which will get started dividing up their planned hauls for the next four years. Grab your wallets. A new team of thieves has arrived.
