Ind. Gov't. - "Redistricting feud clouds City-County Council races"

The most recent ILB post in this issue is from Nov. 4th, 2013, and is headed "Supreme Court grants direct transfer in Marion County redistricting case."

Jon Murray reported Sunday in a story in the Indianapolis Star that:

... council district boundaries still are in flux as the courts sort out a redistricting case, making it tougher to begin lining up potential candidates for 25 districts.

The council’s makeup can make or break a mayor’s signature initiatives. Just ask Mayor Greg Ballard, a Republican who has run into interference from the Democrat-controlled council on big proposals, including paying for more public works projects.

The long story continues with a list of five "key factors shaping council elections" and which party benefits.
