This story is similar to what happened in Denver, where Stand for Children, DFER, and other conduits for anonymous donors bought every seat on the elected school board. Until 2010, an ordinary citizen of Indianapolis could win a school board seat. In 2012, Stand for Children (SFC) & the Mind Trust provided over $50,000 each for their candidates. THUS,  6 of the 7 board members became board members through the purchase of our local democracy. This means they owe their allegiance to the agenda of Stand for Children and the Mind Trust and NOT to the Indianapolis community. Moreover, The $1.5 million spent on the last three elections flowed through SFC used a tax designation, 501c4, to hide the source of that money and the ways they spend it. “What they don’t want you to know is that much of this big money is coming from wealthy individuals and organizations from all around the country.'
