Lawmakers: Support This Bill

Cincinnati City Council passed a resolution this week to urge Ohio's congressional delegation to support the Neighborhood Reclamation and Revitalization Program Act of 2007. The legislation would set up a new federal grant program for municipalities with a history of continued population loss since 1980, a vacant housing problem and a comprehensive plan to demolish that housing.

The support measure, introduced by Jeff Berding, passed 7-2, with Republicans Leslie Ghiz and Chris Monzel voting against.

Please explain why GHIZ and MONZEL were not for this resolution? Also, it would be helpful if the resolution was attached to this article so that I, the reader, can give an educated response.

Thank you.

Shouldn't the burden be on the other 7 to explain why they supported it, and felt it was an issue for Cincinnati City Council to spend time on?

Either explain for or against this resoluton. What the heck is the point of it? Will it give funding to give a kick-start to those communities (LPH, Price Hill, Westwood) who have been given all the unwanted Section 8 vouchers after Roxanne's first-time in elected position? This is why I would love to see the document posted as did the first anonymous posting stated.

I back Ghiz and Monzel, respectfully. I just do not understand what this resolution is all about. I know they have the best interested at heart.

Please explain.

Here's an idea:

Stop wasting your time trying to help the government create more taxing programs, take your "fine arts" and museum slush fund and make it work for the city in the way you want the federal government to do it.

This way you keep local control, you don't have to adhere to bulky government regulations, you can get it done faster, you can actually get it done, and when it's all done - you can start giving money back to the phony baloney museum.
