Cincinnati Election Postmortem

The election was mostly all good in last night's election. Voters on the whole voted for progress by re electing Mayor Mark Mallory for another 4 year term.

City Council saw the return of 7 incumbents including Roxanne Qualls, Cecil Thomas, Jeff Berding, Chris Monzel, Leslie Ghiz, Laketa Cole, and Chris Bortz.

Laure Quinlivan will join the incumbents along with Charlie Winburn returning.......Winburn's election goes to show that Cincinnati voters do have a sense of humor...But I'm not laughing...the guys a republican in the same sense that Michael Steele and Clarence Thomas are GOP...not conservative...but obstructionist....

The casino issue #3 passed....And it will be built on Broadway Commons...the city gets it right..

Issue #9 the light rail amendment was happily voted down, which was a good thing. It tanked badly all over the city except for on the Westside of town.

Considering the news yesterday about Warren Buffett buying a railroad in anticipation...I think rail transit in America is about to turn around...I don't mean tomorrow...But I do mean finally...

All other issues.....the water district amendment....the library funding....the livestock board...the city schools...MRDD...Museum Center....all passed handily..

Big Wheel keeps on rolling....at least for the next four years..
