Local Elites Intrigue With All Things Sports-Related
Local media is abuzz about news that Indiana Sports Corporation President Allison Melangton is leaving her job to take a new job working as a senior executive for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where she will be responsible for developing new attractions for the Speedway. You may recall that Melangton worked with Mark Miles, Hulman & Co.'s CEO when she ran the local 2012 Super Bowl Committee which Miles chaired. The IBJ is also reporting that Mayor Greg Ballard's chief of staff, Ryan Vaughn, who previously served as president of the Indianapolis City-County Council, will take Melangton's place at the Indiana Sports Corporation. It just goes to prove that everything in Indianapolis revolves around sports.
