Ignore the fact that the building is owned by the City of Cincinnati. They don't have the money to fix their own buildings because they would rather spend their Capital funds to build a streetcar. You suburbanites need to pay higher taxes to maintain Cincinnati's buildings so that white urban hipsters can have themselves a streetcar!
We are extremely disappointed in Commissioners Greg Hartmann and Todd Portune for their decision. We would be disappointed in that miser Monzel, but we already knew he was a bum. This guy has viciously opposed every part of our tax-and-spend agenda. From opposing our $777 million Sales Tax increase, to opposing the Light Rail Sales Tax hike, to opposing more stadium taxes, to opposing a modest Trash Tax, and much more, Monzel has been one of our biggest enemies.
Commissioner Hartmann disappoints us. We thought he turned a corner over these past few years and became one of us. Why wouldn't he want to raise taxes on all Hamilton County property owners to help Cincinnati afford their streetcar? We are so upset at Hartmann, that effective immediately we have stripped him of the prestigious "Tax Hike Hartmann" nickname that we once awarded him. He will not get it back until he raises some serious taxes around here.
We are also very disappointed in Commissioner Portune. We remember the days when he was our ally, but over the past 2 years he has turned into one of those fiscal conservatives! Who could have guessed that Todd Portune, in the same 12 months, would say no higher stadium taxes, say no to subsidizing the streetcar, and say no to taxing Hamilton County residents to help maintain a Cincinnati building? Todd needs to look in a mirror and remind himself the true meaning of Mustache Power.
We encourage all you tax hikers to contact the Commissioners to let them know of your disappointment. Tell them they should raise taxes anytime one of Cincinnati's buildings needs work. Tell them all Hamilton County residents should pay higher taxes to ensure that Cincinnati has the money to build their streetcar. We are going to continue our fight to raise county property taxes for
