Delaney Calling for Mayoral Candidate Debates

State Rep. Ed Delaney is challenging his democratic mayoral opponents and Mayor Greg Ballard to public debates. 

Delaney, who is seeking the democratic nod for mayor, says Ballard is "robbing Peter to pay Paul" in an attempt to fund his anti-crime, pre-school education initiative.  He says the Mayor's plan is a desperate attempt to appear in control of the city's growing crime problem. 

Delaney says the Mayor's plan takes money away from libraries and public schools and would raise taxes to fund pre-school education.  He says the candidates should debate how to fund preschool education and anti-crime efforts.  Delaney adds that the Mayor's preschool program would only help one of every four Indianapolis kids.  He says the mayor's plan is driven by "the election cycle."
