    Mitch Daniels for President! Then we could lease the Interstate Highway system to Spain and Australia, defund planned parenthood, ruin the education system and God knows what else. The state that gave us Mike Pence, Dan Burton, Todd Young can join the state that gave us Mitch McConnel, Rand Paul and David Williams is becoming laughing stocks.

    Vacant property is not necessarily unowned property. That’s the problem. If the city would get on the ball and go after them for property taxes, and if not paid, TAKE the property, it could be freed up.
