Dear fellow tax hikers, we are irate at Duke Energy for refusing to spend $18.7 million to subsidize the wonderful streetcar. That is the estimated cost to move their utilities for this most urgent project. Can you believe that Duke Energy wants the City of Cincinnati to pay for their own streetcar? We think all the ratepayers of Duke should pay for this.
We are so mad that we are starting a mass boycott of Duke. Refuse to use electric or gas products until Duke relents. If every streetcar supporter refuses to use electricity or gas, we will bring Duke to their knees!
We call on our State Representative Peter "Streetcar" Stautberg to advocate on behalf of the streetcar, just like he's done before. Streetcar Stautberg has previously assisted us on the streetcar project and now we need him again.
No matter Duke's insolence, the streetcar is happening. Mayor Mallory and us agree, this streetcar must be built no matter how much it costs. We don't care about the costs. If necessary, we'll just raise taxes. More taxes, more streetcars, that is life in modern Cincinnati.
