Dear fellow tax hikers, look what we found! Please read the following editorial from our old friend Sean Donovan, a proud streetcar supporter and candidate for Hamilton County Sheriff. This is the kind of guy we want watching our tax dollars.
STREETCAR LOOP ESSENTIAL FOR CITY'S FUTURE
are facing a critical point in future development of this city. Our
choice is to continue to lose population, erode our tax base and watch
our inner city decay or we can decide to move forward.
initial loop of the downtown streetcar will create immediate residential
and retail development in the core of the city. Both young
professionals and empty-nesters enjoy living in the core area of major
cities like Boston, Portland, Washington for example. Young people
seeking a career will choose a vibrant socially active and safe city to
live and work.We must have the foresight to embrace the future. We must
not be sidetracked by those who are not interested in longterm
successful economic development of the area.
I live and work
Downtown by choice. I remember when it was a vibrant thriving center for
commerce and entertainment. I know we can again be a safe and
attractive place to live,work and play. It will take leadership from
business and elected officials. We are close, let's not watch another
opportunity pass us by. Get on board the Cincinnati streetcar.
