Peterson Out As Mayor Of Indianapolis

Last updated on Wednesday, November 7, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indianapolis is getting a new mayor.

Republican Greg Ballard, a retired Marine, has unseated incumbent Democrat Bart Peterson. It will be the first time in eight years the city has had a Republican mayor.

Unlike past campaigns, Peterson ran ads attacking his opponent in recent weeks.

Ballard pointed to staggering property and income tax increases and a continued rise in violent crimes among the reasons the city needs new leadership.
