Dear fellow tax hikers, the race for Hamilton County Commissioner has become even more crowded and confusing than it was before. A few days ago we talked about The Ghostbuster Sean Feeney. Now we're talking about Jim Tarbell.
Tarbell, you see, is so upset that Hamilton County citizens won't get to pay higher taxes for Cincinnati-owned Music Hall that he's decided to run as a write-in candidate. Four years ago Tarbell ran as the Democratic candidate, only to get crushed by our enemy Chris Monzel 56-44%.
This puts us in a quandary. We endorsed Taxin' Tarbell in his losing 2010 campaign. But a few days ago we endorsed The Ghostbuster for this race.
We need feedback from you, our loyal readers. Which of our endorsed candidates do we stand behind?
1) The streetcar supporter that wants to raise taxes for Music Hall who is on the ballot?
2) The streetcar supporter that wants to raise taxes for Music Hall who isn't on the ballot?
Or do we endorse both of these pro-streetcar tax hikers? Write us with your thoughts.
