Senator Jim Merritt Drops by The Hammer and Nigel Show to Discuss His Candidacy for Mayor of Indianapolis
Indiana Senator Jim Merritt has announced he will challenge Democrat incumbent Joe Hogsett in the 2019 race for Mayor of the city of Indianapolis.
"This city is crumbling under our feet and there's just no overall plan for the future and thus, I feel like I need to step up and run for mayor of Indianapolis," Merritt said as he delivered remarks from the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood, Thursday.
"The idea of an overall plan for the future of Indianapolis-the current administration patches. It's all patchwork," said Merritt. "We're gonna come with, in the next 10 months, bold solutions to the problems that are challenging Indianapolis."
Senator Merritt dropped by the Hammer and Nigel show Thursday afternoon to expound upon his campaign plans and make his case to Indianapolis voters.
