Elf on the Square

Elf on the Square

The Mike Corbett for Mayor campaign is launching a promotion to help drive holiday traffic to the
courthouse square.

“This was originally conceived as a response to the city’s decision to move the Santa House,” said
Corbett. Last week the city reversed course after realizing it didn’t have the authority to move the
house, which has been a holiday tradition for several generations.

“Right after the initial announcement I got a call from Rosie Hoistion, owner of Old Picket Fence,” said
Corbett. “She and other merchants were worried that they’d lose out on vital holiday revenue. Fearing
the city was ignoring the concerns of both merchants and their customers, my campaign team and I put
our heads together and came up with what we’re calling ‘Elf on the Square’. Even after news came down
that the Santa House would remain on the square the merchants agreed that this promotion would still
be a great way to support our local businesses.”

The promotion will begin on Sunday, November 25, and run for the four weeks from Thanksgiving to
Christmas. Use clues to identify what downtown shop the Elf is hiding in. Once inside you’ll need to
locate our mischievous friend so you can tell the cashier and claim your prize! More details will be
released in the coming weeks.

“My hope is that this will provide a fun, family friendly way for people to experience many of the
amazing local businesses we have on the courthouse square,” said Corbett. “This will be a great event
and it illustrates what can happen when we communicate well and work together. While I’m delighted
that the Santa House will remain in place, I’m concerned about the city’s plan to set up a separate,
taxpayer funded Santa experience at Federal Hill Commons.”

Mike Corbett is running for mayor in May’s primary election. His campaign is focusing on transparency
and communication, among other issues. “This is what real leadership looks like,” said Michael Saner,
campaign manager for Mike Corbett for Mayor. “Mike saw a problem and he didn’t tell everyone to get
over it or dismiss their concerns, he went to them and asked ‘What’s your concern and how can I help?’.
This is the kind of collaborative problem solving we can expect from City Hall should Mike become
mayor. We as citizens deserve nothing less.”

The below is the speech given by Mike Corbett at his Campaign Kick-Off Rally.

This is a crucial time for the City of Noblesville. Events over the past four years have revealed a disconnect between the people and our leaders and its time to correct that.

At the same time, development that has the potential to change the face of our city is knocking at the door. We’re lucky it’s happening now. We have examples of modern development happening just down the road.

They Just Don’t Get It

They Just Don’t Get It

Ours is not a battle pitting old things against new things. The battle is for inclusion and respect but it’s not just “old folks” who are crying out. It’s people of all ages and experiences. They aren’t upset by change, they are upset by being continually ignored and pushed aside.
