Dear All,

Election Day 2019 (November 5th) will be here before we know it.  I have attached a Voter’s Registration form for those who may need it.  If you have a student who has turned 18, you have changed your name, or if your address has changed since you last voted this form may be used to register.  This must be done before October 7th in order to vote in this election.  Completed forms need to be sent to:

Marion Co. Board of Voter Registration
200 East Washington, W131
Indianapolis, IN 46204

(317) 327-5040 (if you have any questions)

You may also request an absentee ballot by filling out the application that is attached for that (second attachment).  The deadline for submitting this is October 28th, but I would not wait until then to request it if you know you would like to vote absentee.  Reasons for voting absentee:  anyone over the age of 65, you are going to be on vacation or other reason that you will not be in Marion County on that day, working all 12 hours the polls are open, cannot get to the polls on election day, etc. (see form for more info).  This gives you the privacy of voting in your own home if you qualify to vote absentee.  Completed forms for request for an absentee ballot need to be sent to:

Marion Co. Election Board
3737 E. Washington St., Ste A
Indianapolis, IN 46201
 
(317) 327-5100 (if you have any questions)

Please feel free to share these forms with others who may need to register to vote or vote absentee. If you notice these forms are good throughout the state of Indiana and the second page of each has where they need to be mailed in all of Indiana’s 92 counties.

For all of you who live in District 6, I would like to ask for your vote.  For most of you there will only be two offices you will be voting for.  Those offices are Indianapolis Mayor and Indianapolis City-County Council.  I hope you will help me get re-elected to represent you in District 6 by voting for me.  Those of you who live in Clermont will also have two of your Town Board members to vote for, and those who live in Speedway will have your Town Council and Clerk-Treasurer up for election.

Also, for those who live in District 6 and would like one of my yard signs, please let me know.  I plan on getting them out next weekend (Oct. 5th).  If you have one of my yard signs from the primary, you may also put it out next weekend.  If you would like to help with my re-election campaign in other ways, please contact me as well.  I can use a lot of volunteers until and including election day.

Sincerely,

Janice McHenry

City-County Councillor District 6

Dear All,

Below is the work that is scheduled to happen on the interstates in Marion County over the weekend.  Please note that there is a lot that may affect your traveling on the northwest side of Indianapolis on I-465 as well as going downtown on I-65.  Look over the map.  With only one lane open in some areas traffic will be extremely slow and may back up.  Plan your routes and travel times accordingly if traveling in areas that they are working.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Sounds like the weather will continue to be great for some outdoor activities and hopefully will be good for road work to get accomplished.

Sincerely,

Janice McHenry

City-County Councillor District 6

Dear All,

October 2nd is going to be a busy day for our Northwest District IMPD.  Starting at 10:00 a.m. will be “Coffee With a Cop”.  This month “Coffee With a Cop” will be held at “Books a Million” which is located 5750 W. 86th Street.  This is a great opportunity for you to talk with officers, the Commander, and others with IMPD about what is on your mind about our area.  October 2nd happens to be “National Coffee With a Cop Day”, which is why it is on the same day as the Task Force Meeting.  Hope you are able to stop by if only for a few minutes from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and have a cup of coffee and visit with those who work so hard for our area each day, as well as check out “Books a Million”.

The Task Force meeting will be from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the Northwest District Headquarters located at 3821 Industrial Blvd.  This month’s speaker will be talking about the Marion County Jail System.  Refreshments will be served.

Flyers for both of these events are attached.  Please feel free to share this with others, not only in District 6, but throughout our Northwest District IMPD area.  I know that IMPD would appreciate your help in getting the word out.

Hope to see many of you at either one or both of these events.  Let’s have a great turnout from District 6 and show our Northwest District IMPD how much we appreciate all they do for us.

Sincerely,

Janice McHenry

 The Faculty Park Little Library has been a huge success.  Books have been coming and going.  This very young “reader” is selecting books she would like to take home and enjoy.

The young “reader” also donated some books she has already enjoyed to the Little Library so other boys and girls can get the pleasure she did from them.

 Closed up and ready for the next visitor to come and browse through the selection of “Books to Share” as our very young “reader” heads for home with her treasures from this trip. 

 Last weekend was the “Cruisin’ With Cops” car show.  With old time cars and fire trucks…

 pace cars from the past…

very small cars… 

and everything in between.

 Thanks to all of our IMPD officers for making this such a success and an enjoyable time for all.

 Councillor McHenry would like to thank those who came out on her most recent clean-up.  As folks signed in and got supplies, others (in the background) were already starting out to clean along 56th Street between the two interstates.

 This is one of the piles of trash that was picked up and gathered in locations for further removal.

It is great that people realize by working together we can make a difference in how our roadways look.  Councillor McHenry would also like to thank the folks in her district that make picking up trash in an area near them a regular part of their time.  She really does appreciate their dedication to keeping our district looking better.

Dear All,
Here is the latest from INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) that I have for this coming weekend on planned construction.  If you look at the map it gives a better picture of where work will be happening and how it may affect you better than the text does.  Hope this is helpful as you go about driving around Indianapolis over the weekend.  Take special note of the northwest side and what is going on closest to us.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather!
 
Sincerely,
 
Janice McHenry
City-County Councillor District 6

Dear All,

My next Town Hall Meeting will be on Monday, October 7th.  It will be held at Flanner and Buchanan Community Center located at 2950 N. High School Road (building in the back) from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.  City Controller Fady Qaddorura will be talking about the 2020 Budget for Marion County.  Controller Qaddorura has joined us the past two years for my annual Budget Presentation Town Hall Meeting and is looking forward to coming back again this year.  He really has enjoyed having this opportunity to talk to us about the budget, where exactly the city’s money comes from, and how it is divided up between the different departments.  He also likes being able to answer questions that you may have and has been impressed with the audiences we have had in the past.  Let’s give him a warm District 6 welcome again this year and have a great turnout for this Town Hall Meeting.

As many of you already know, I (along with some terrific volunteers) have been passing out cards in the district for this meeting along with a campaign card for me and my upcoming election on November 5th.  There is still a lot of the district that needs to be done the next couple of weeks before the Town Hall Meeting.  I know many of you enjoy walking or being outside.  If you would like to help walk an area passing out these cards, please let me know.  If your neighborhood has not been done it would be a great chance to help me get that accomplished.  Or, I would love to have you join me in doing another neighborhood in the district if yours has been walked.  You may reply to this email if you would like to help.

Please feel free to forward this information on to others in our district who may not be on my email list and might like to attend this Town Hall Meeting.  Thanks for helping to get the message out.

Sincerely,

Janice McHenry

City-County Councillor District 6

Ever wonder about how the City’s budget process works?  Where exactlydoes (and does not) the tax money for the City Budget come from?  How is the money divided up between departments?  City Controller Fady Qaddoura will speak about the 2020 Budget and what it will mean for our City.  This is your chance to listen, learn, and ask questions about next year’s budget before it is voted on by the City-County Council.

  

Councillor Janice McHenry’s

Do you enjoy a parade as it passes by?  Watching the various groups and participants is always a lot of fun!  What better way to spend a Saturday morning but by attending Clermont’s annual parade!  It will be on Saturday, September 21st, starting at 11:00 a.m.  The parade route will be starting at Raceway Road and traveling east on Crawfordsville Road to Tansel.  From there it will go south and end up on the north side of Robey Elementary School (please note new end point this year).  Those who would like to watch this traditional small town parade can do so along the parade route.  It should be a great parade!  Please see attached flyer for more information.

If you do not go to the parade, please be advised that traffic will be re-routed or delayed in and around Clermont on Raceway Road, Crawfordsville Road, and Tansel Road during the parade.  Please plan your driving accordingly.

Sincerely,

Janice McHenry

City-County Councillor District 6

P.S.  I will be participating again this year.  If anyone would like to walk with some other volunteers and me, let me know by replying to this email.  It is always fun to walk the parade route and pass out flags to those watching.  The more in our unit the merrier!
