Dear fellow tax hikers, we are gravely concerned about the inept campaign being run by our ally, pro-streetcar leftist Jason Riveiro. There are many things a Cincinnati City Council candidate needs to do well. This hombre isn't doing a single one of them.
With just weeks left before Election Day, credible candidates have raised most of their money and are sitting on a war chest which they will deploy in the final two or three weeks of the campaign. Sadly, this doesn't describe Riveiro. At the last campaign finance deadline Riveiro had raised a minimal amount of money. Even worse, he spent nearly all of it. The evidence shows his campaign is about broke.
Jason Riveiro and the Riveiro campaign is being sued by a consulting firm for $1700. We are afraid this reflects poorly on Mr. Riveiro's cash flow. A campaign that has built up its war chest for the final stretch should be able to make a $1700 payment without getting sued first.
We are saddened by this news because we like Mr. Riveiro. We appreciate his support for higher taxes, the streetcar, and illegal immigration. We will stand with our amigo to the end, but we are afraid he will not be one of the nine standing in the winner's circle. We encourage his supporters to stand beside him, though we also advise anyone doing business with him to get paid up front and in cash.
