Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard: Cleaning up the Circle City

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard wants Hoosiers from the Circle City to come outside and play clean. On May 3, 2010, this Monday, the city of Indianapolis hosts “The Great Indy Spring Cleanup ToxDrop Event,” a clean sweep of the entire metropolis to beautify Indy and bump up the quality of the environment a notch or two.

One of the hallmarks of Mayor Greg Ballard‘s administration has been the ToxDrop Program, a practical system for Indianapolis citizens to safely dispose of their household hazardous waste. For details on how to properly participate in Monday’s “ToxDrop,” see the Sustain Indy website.

Considered by many to be a true grassroots public servant, Ballard took office in 2008, after winning against Bart Peterson by a narrow margin. Peterson had big money behind him, but Ballard had more votes in the end, and the match was called the biggest upset in the political history of Indiana.

Greg Ballard was born in Indianapolis in 1954, and also maintains his residence in Indy. He took his B.A. from Indiana University and served in the United States Marines, where he completed an M.A. in military science. In 2001, he retired, after 23 years of outstanding military service.

In Indianapolis society, Ballard has likewise distinguished himself, and his name will no doubt remain on the list of notable people from Indianapolis for generations to come.
