I sat down and spoke Thursday with Pastor Ron Covington of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church on the Indianapolis Mayor’s race. Democrat Melina Kennedy had just met with Covington and about a dozen other ministers.
He commented on her visit as well as the state of the Mayor’s race from the perspective of the Black Church. Covington has the unique position of being a member of the Ten-Point Coalition and the Baptist Ministers Alliance of Indianapolis. Two groups who are at odds at times in the Mayor’s race.
You can hear his interview in the Audio Vault section of our sister blog, IndyPolitics.Org. It is also worth noting that Mayor Greg Ballard was a guest at Friendship this past Sunday as well.
