take on the special election. As an added honor he will also join the IPSE trading board and in the process provide GOP Chairman Tom John and his right hand man David Brooks a much needed boost. We recieved a couple of emails during the caucus with some interesting viewpoints from tonight and at least two differennt observers suggested that it was a combined Ballard Tom John push that pushed Angel over the top.
While it flies in the face of conventional wisdom we are entertaining that fact that whatever supposed rift existed between the Mayor Ballard and Tom John is now well past them. Accepting this premise suggests that their futures (in terms of stock prices) are now inextricably link from this point forward. It is at least plausible that whatever Tom John does he does with the approval of the mayor. This helps Tom immensely as his stock values has hit rock bottom over the last few weeks. Brooks will benefit as well. As a result of updated twitters from Indiana Barrister (INBR) that complimented the dozen or so emails we received throughout the evening we boosted this stock as well.
