Stephen Goldsmith – who is hailed by conservatives for allowing private companies to bid for the jobs of Indianapolis city workers when he was mayor there – will be drumming up support for Mayor Jerry Sanders to do just that.
Goldsmith, a professor of government at Harvard and an advisor to President Bush’s campaign in 2000, will visit in September to rally support for Sanders’ two ballot proposals. The Goldsmith event will cost attendees $500.
Sanders wants voters to OK changes to the City Charter, known as Prop B and Prop C, which would require voter approval for pension increases and allow private companies to bid for government contracts. City voters will vote on the propositions in November.
