According to the Gongwer news review of the testimony, Pillich asked Monzel if one of the concerns behind this legislation is the possibility of black people moving into predominantly white townships.
Rep. Connie Pillich (D-Montgomery) asked whether another concern involved issues with the potential for predominantly black CHMA residents moving into predominantly white townships.
Our sources tell us Pillich's questions were even more confrontational than reported by that news service. They tell us Pillich asked Monzel if his real goal isn't to stop black people from moving out into the suburbs.
Is Connie Pillich suggesting that black people can't move out of "the city" without a government program to do it for them? Is she saying black citizens are incapable of locating themselves into their chosen neighborhood?
Let's take a look at the record of these two individuals when it comes to their willingness to live near black people. Pillich lives in the city of Montgomery. According to the 2010 Census, Montgomery is 2.7% black. For most of the past 15 years, Monzel has lived in Cincinnati, which is 44.8% black. Should we ask our numbers crew to tell us which of these two has a problem living near black people and which one doesn't?
We don't believe Pillich is a racist. We believe she loves minorities, when they show up to the polls and vote for her. She just doesn't want "those people" living near her. That's our progressive white liberal Connie Pillich.
