Position Papers
A Livable Neighborhood Agenda
Cincinnati has always been a city of strong neighborhoods, but City Council has recently allowed too many of its neighborhoods to fall in disrepair. The Liveable Neighborhood Agenda lays out a concrete, proactive plan to change that.
Plan for Youth and Family
Being a great place to raise a family has always been Cincinnati's greatest srength. But families left our city at a record pace in the 1990's - believing our schools and neighborhoods were not ideal for their kids. This plan addresses key concerns along these lines.
Safe Streets Initiative
Other cities have found that building concrete partnerships in high crime areas is the best way to make those communities safer. My "Safe Streets Initiative" proposes a concrete way for communities and law enforcement to partner in increasing safety.
