Ask The Mayor: Crawfordsville's Todd Barton On Paying for Solar Instead of Trains

Stan Jastrzebski

Last year, Crawfordsville’s Human Rights Commission changed city ordinances to ensure they could not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

But when the Indiana Senate passed a hate crimes bill this week, it did not include any such language. That angers one listener to WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, who wants to know what Crawfordsville’s Todd Barton plans to do about it when he next talks to State Senator Phil Boots, who voted for the stripped-down bill.

Also on this week’s show, county leaders have been on the receiving end of vitriolic comments from residents about the poor condition of rural roads thank to winter weather.

We also ask Mayor Barton if he’s getting similar comments about his city’s streets – which, by the way, are a little smarter about train traffic these days.
