The two-time candidate for Congress in the 7th Congressional District has rejoined the Mayor's Office as Greg Ballard's Senior Executive Policy Adviser.
By my count, this is May's third stint with the Ballard Administration. He was originally a highly-effective Mayor's Neighborhood Liaison. That's where I got to know him. He left that job to run for Congress in 2010, but he was defeated in May of that year by Marvin Scott.
The Mayor hired him back again to serve as Director of Latino Affairs. He left that job to run full-time for Congress in May 2012. Congressman Andre Carson won reelection in November. May joined the Indy Eleven professional soccer club in July as Director of International Media. He left that job in September and rejoined the Ballard Administration in his new role.
I really like Carlos. He's a solid guy, and it's no wonder why the Ballard Administration would think so highly of him that it would hire him three times.
