The big local news from the Election a few weeks ago was the passing of the IndyGo funding referendum. With almost 60% of the vote, voters in Marion County supported the measure, giving the City County Council a good indication of the direction of their upcoming vote on the issue.
Thankfully, MIBOR released the election results by council district. I asked Jill Saligoe-Simmel to help map the results so they could be displayed in a clickable manner. The results can be seen on her website, or below:
Supporters are now encouraged to write to their council members. I’ve already written mine, Duke Oliver. My district voted for this measure at over 70 percent, so it should be an easy yes for him.
Find your councillor here, or if you already know them, their contact information is here. Let’s keep our interest level up, and hopefully soon, Indy may finally have its best transit network in decades.
