NPR’s Smart City with Carol Coletta covers Cincinnati’s anti-rail Issue 9.
Cincinnati NAACP president Chris Smitherman complains about the ballot language that he helped write:
The Cincinnati NAACP remains concerned that a Yes vote on Issues 8 & 9 mean No and a No vote on Issues 8 & 9 means Yes. “This is nothing short of madness and political corruption,” Smitherman says.
If it’s so confusing, why’d he help write it that way? And why’d he help collect signatures to get the issue placed on the ballot?
Mayoral candidate Brad Wenstrup on crime in Cincinnati:
I felt safer in Iraq.
I want a mayor who’ll stand up for our city, not badmouth it & claim it’s more dangerous than Iraq. Wenstrup is a joke.
