Rev. Chas Harrison

Rev. Charles Harrison

The Afternoons with Amos PODCAST For Tuesday, July 7, 2015.  (Reaction to Entry Of Rev. Charles Harrison In Mayor’s Race Begins From the Beginning of PODCAST). A mysterious group, who have refused to publicly identify themselves went around Indianapolis in mid to late June and gathered up enough signatures to meet the legal requirements to place Rev. Charles Harrison, Pastor of Barnes United Methodist Church and the Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition on the ballot as an independent candidate for Indianapolis Mayor. But the fact that the group organizing the petition drive didn’t have the public blessing of Rev. Harrison, never publicly identified themselves. And with a mysterious website promoting the efforts but without ID or copyright designation, questions have been raised about the unusual and unorthodox tactics. Afternoons with Amos asked its listeners and community to react to the possible candidacy of Rev. Harrison and the unusual circumstances that placed the minister’s name on the ballot, though he’s not made a public statement of whether or not he’s actually running for Mayor. Listener reaction was varied but somewhat negative towards the possibility. Many featuring Rev. Harrison would splinter the Black vote and would allow Republican candidate Chuck Brewer to succeed incumbent Mayor Greg Ballard, instead of Democratic challenger Joe Hogsett. Listeners also weighed in on the growing controversy of the revelations, not publicly confirmed by Chase Bank, that at least two Chase branches are being closed in Indianapolis inner city and low income neighborhoods. (Interview Starts At 1:17:24 Mark On PODCAST Media Player). Also, Antoinette Holt, Director of the Office of Minority Health for the Indiana State Department of Healthy stopped by to preview this year’s Indiana Black Expo 30th Black and Minority Health Fair.
