Challenge to candidates: turn down perquisites.

   Percentage-wise, few people get seats to luxury suits at Pacers and Colts games. Indianapolis Motor Speedway has probably more suites with larger seating capacity.

   Elected political officials receive free tickets for these luxury accommodations. Maybe the politicians are friends of the owners. Those owners have sought public funds for various aspects of their operations. The politicians vote on those funds. This is at least an appearance of impropriety and wrong.

   This is my challenge: that any candidates make a pledge either to turn down the tickets, or donate the tickets to others---kids, people who face challenges, charities. If candidates are serious about being honest, those candidates should turn down this sugar.

   Make the pledge. It is a modest start, but a good start.
