  8. Mayor Ginther Directs Christopher Columbus Statue to be Removed from City Hall Mayor Andrew Ginther has announced that the Christopher Columbus statue at City Hall will be removed as soon as possible. “For many people in our community, the statue represents patriarchy, oppression and divisiveness. That does not represent our great city, and we will no longer live in the shadow of our ugly past,” said Mayor Ginther in a press release. “Now is the right time to replace this statue with artwork that demonstrates our enduring fight to end racism and celebrate the themes of diversity and inclusion.” The statue will be placed in storage, while the Columbus Art Commission will lead an effort to replace the statue with public artwork “that better reflects the people of Columbus and offers a shared vision for the future,” read the statement from the mayor’s office.

  10. More importantly, what does Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Warren, Ashtabula, and Vermilion think about this foolishness? I don't see a single forumer from those cities/areas on here that are like "Yeah Cleveland, let's join New London! COLUMBUS SUCKS!" It just seems to be a Cuyahoga County issue?
  11. I mean, Spokane does have a downtown Nordstrom. No Ohio city has that. Thus, Washington state wins!
  12. Correct. I could see, say, Washington state being something to aspire (or annex) to but Connecticut? Chile, please.
  13. ...isn't that what Kentucky is for?
  14. New details: Major West Dayton development moves forward The redevelopment project of an almost 100-year-old building on Dayton's west side is moving forward. The West Side Chevy building, located at 300 W. Third St. in Dayton, will be transformed into a mixed-use facility featuring apartments, retail and parking. A group of Dayton-area developers are leading the project — purchasing the building last December under the name San Marco LLC. The development hit a key milestone, debuting its initial rendering. The first floor of the building will be home to retailers along the Third Street corridor, while the top floors will feature a mixture of apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms. The project will take about 18-24 months to complete. More below: https://www.bizjournals.com/dayton/news/2020/06/17/new-details-west-dayton-development-moves-forward.html
  15. Council approves interim city manager Cincinnati City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday to make Paula Boggs Muething, currently the city’s top lawyer, to become the city’s interim city manager upon Patrick Duhaney’s departure next month. Muething will make the same salary as Duhaney — $222,799 annually, up from her $163,937 salary as solicitor. Muething will be interim city manager until a permanent city manager is recommended by Cranley and confirmed by council. Cranley has said he is unsure whether he is going to do a national search for a new city manager. He has 18 months left in office. An interim solicitor also will be chosen.

  16. You really see a difference between Bridgeport and Youngstown? Here's a hint: Both states aren't doing too good for their urban areas. I'd argue Ohio is far better preserving their cities versus Connecticut sans New Haven or the Metro North suburbs.
  17. He needs to go because that sh_t is terrible.
  18. Connecticut isn't exactly a state that has been progressive politically, particularly historically If the CWR aspires to be that, then it's got some work to do.
