Education Profiteers Get Their Handpicked IPS Board Candidate
One education profiteer leaves the IPS board for another education profiteering role. A new education profiteer is appointed by other education profiteers who control the balance of the board to take her place. The six current board members voted tonight to name Mike O'Connor to replace Caitlin Hannon to the District 1 seat she resigned to take a new job working for the Mind Trust. O'Connor is an Eli Lilly executive and lobbyist who works for Eli Lilly Vice President Bart Peterson, who chairs the Mind Trust. O'Connor formerly worked as Peterson's deputy mayor when he was Indianapolis' mayor. The vote was 4-2. Amos Brown called it yesterday.
