Some questions asked of the mayor this week:

As we gear up for the next session of the General Assembly, which will be devoted to crafting a new two-year budget, what will you be doing to try and convince lawmakers to funnel more money toward infrastructure improvements?

House Republicans announced their legislative agenda this week. In a nutshell, it includes more funding for schools, while maintaining a balanced budget and a strong surplus. What are your initial reactions to the agenda?

Besides infrastructure improvements, will you be lobbying for anything else at the statehouse during the session?

The President and the Centers for Disease Control are trying to calm fears about the spread of Ebola. There is no sign of the virus in Indiana— but do Frankfort health officials have any protocols in place to deal with such a health crisis?
