While serving two terms as mayor of Indianapolis (1992-1999), Stephen Goldsmith earned a national reputation for innovations in government. As mayor of America's 12th largest city, he reduced government spending, cut the city's bureaucracy, held the line on taxes, eliminated counterproductive regulations, and identified more than $400 million in savings. He reinvested the savings by leading a transformation of downtown Indianapolis and its neighborhoods that has been held up as a national model. This document provides a list of resources relating to Goldsmith's expereince in Indianapolis.
