Fill-In on WXNT

For the second time, Libertarian Party of Indiana Executive Director Brad Klopfenstein filled in for Abdul on the Abdul in the Morning show on Newstalk 1430, WXNT-am. Brad invited me to be his in-studio guest.

The show was quite a success, as we talked about the food & beverage taxes being voted on later in the day in Hamilton, Hendricks, and Morgan Counties. Reagan Assistant Doug Bandow, now a Senior Fellow of the Cato Institute, spoke about the folly of publicly funded stadiums as economic engines.

Yours Truly

Brad also had restaurant owners Bill Smythe of Claude & Annie's, and Pete Watson of BW3s. Each gave his perspective of the impact the food & beverage taxes would have on their businesses, employees, and patrons. Sam Goldstein is leading a remonstrance against a multi-million dollar bond issue the Washington Township (Marion County) schools are considering for high end athletic facilities.

I think we gave perspectives that needed to be voiced, and were entertaining in the process.
