Warming up to Ryan Vaughn as President of the Council?

So in this whole circus of Republican Mayor Greg Ballard saying he'll veto the "guns-in-parks" proposal, we have this comment from newly elected President of the City-County Council, Ryan Vaughn (via The Indianapolis Star):

Ryan Vaughn, the Republican council president, said the mayor's initial opposition to the proposal would not keep it from going through the process.

"The mayor is one of 900,000 residents in Marion County," Vaughn said. "We need to hear from all the parties and do our due diligence, and at the end of that process, if the mayor still feels like he wants to veto the proposal, that's his role in government."

Kudos, Mr. Vaughn. The council has their job, the mayor has his, and they don't always have to agree. I hope we see action behind these words, because it is very promising from a relatively young politician.
