Monzel supports an agenda of lower taxes and spending restraints. For years Monzel has led the fight to freeze property tax rates in Cincinnati. Monzel opposed the huge $800 million Sales Tax increase that we and Ghiz supported. Monzel opposed the Mark Mallory/Leslie Ghiz Streetcar. When Ghiz voted to give the Freedom Center $800,000, Chris Monzel was the only member of City Council to oppose it. For all that he must be stopped!
If Monzel wins this race, he will join with fellow Republican Greg Hartmann to give this county a Commission majority of fiscal conservatives who support lower taxes and less spending. We cannot allow this to happen. By having Leslie Ghiz replace her mentor David Pepper on the County Commission, we would retain the tax-and-spend majority that we worked so hard to win in 2006.
Leslie Ghiz has earned our support. Ghiz voted for Pepper's Sales Tax hike and Mallory's $200 million Streetcar. And when Commission control was up for grabs in 2006, Ghiz endorsed the tax-and-spend Democrat David Pepper while Monzel backed the conservative Republican Phil Heimlich. What more do we tax hikers need to know? Leslie Ghiz for County Commissioner.
