John participated in a press conference with Mayoral Candidate Melina Kennedy aimed at bringing attention to the plan to construct a flood wall along the East side of the White River Canal that threatens the beauty of the mid-north neighborhoods and could affect access and use of the Central Canal. John strongly supports Melina’s position “to stop this proposal from advancing until there is further review and discussion.” Good planning requires interactive input from neighbors and John will be attending upcoming meetings to work to find a solution that works for the whole community. The event was covered by both Channel 13 and the Indianapolis Star.
After being endorsed during the Marion County Democratic slating convention, John today filed to run for an At-Large seat on the Indianapolis City/County Council in the May primary.
“Our city faces challenges, but above all we must put our residents first in every policy and financial decision we make. Every choice today can have long-term consequences for our community, and I look forward to being an advocate for neighborhoods on the city/county council,” Barth said.

I am tremendously honored to be a slated Democratic candidate for an At-Large seat on the Indianapolis City/County Council. A big thank you to all my volunteers and supporters for their hard work leading up to and during the Slating Convention held on February 12, 2011. I now look to the primary and am ready to launch a neighborhood-focused campaign aimed at bringing attention to the importance of thriving neighborhoods to the city’s economic, cultural and educational future.
It’s been over a year since I began my campaign to be an At-Large member of the Indianapolis City-County Council and I am both thankful and humbled by all the support I have received. As I move towards slating on Saturday February 12 I’d like to say “thank you” to my amazing supporters – John Barth
