WHAT'S AT STAKE NOW
NOVEMBER 2021 ELECTIONS
FOR MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL
CORRUPTION IS THE PROBLEM
CHARTER IS THE ANSWER
Nearly 100 years ago, the City of Cincinnati was beset by rampant political corruption. This was stopped by a grass roots citizen movement to adopt a new City Charter after which no elected City official was indicted for corruption in 94 years.
WE MUST: Return to the Council-Manager City government which so effectively kept our city free from back room politics and pay-to-play corruption.
In 2015, the Charter Review Task Force, a non-partisan group of ordinary citizens, worked together and proposed important, common-sense improvements to our City government. These reforms were quashed by partisan politicians.
WE MUST: Stop waiting and adopt these sensible reforms now to help root out behaviors that have corrupted our city government.
Some powerful developers and special interests, with plenty of help from the Mayor and Council, regularly subvert the will and desires of communities and neighborhoods to serve their own interests or their own personal gain.
WE MUST: elect council members who will establish strong neighborhood and community engagement and re-establish a balance of power at City Hall.
