Ballard Withdraws Bid To Become Ivy Tech President
Former Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Ivy Tech president's job after interviewing for the job according to Robert Vane, who once worked as a paid spokesman for Ballard when he was mayor. At least 30 applicants have applied for the job, including former Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann, who agreed to give up her statewide elected job based on her belief board members appointed by Gov. Mike Pence would name her to the position. One can only imagine just how badly Ballard's interview with the committee went. Vane told the Indianapolis Star that Ballard is focused on "numerous other opportunities."
