Divide and conquer, slash and burn. It is going to be a tiring 3 more years.

I just got around to reading the whole backstory around this incident and I don't see why the 911 call center is getting all the blame. It really seems like the majority of the blame lies with the police officers for not doing a good enough job of checking the lot when they were told that there was someone trapped in a car.

In his budget, Cranley kills dedicated funding for Tillery’s Center for Closing the Health Gap

 

Mayor John Cranley fired a political missile at a longtime Cincinnati City Hall insider on Wednesday, proposing to zero out city funding for the Center for Closing the Health Gap, the group headed by Dwight Tillery, who is Cranley’s former political ally and Cincinnati’s mayor from 1991 to 1993.

 

Cranley unveiled his budget on Wednesday afternoon in a news conference in Pleasant Ridge at the future site of a Goodfellas Pizza.

 

Tillery’s group was set to receive $562,000 in the fiscal year 2019 budget, down from $750,000 in FY2018. Under Cranley’s budget, the center would receive $0 in dedicated funds.

 

In remarks to reporters after unveiling the budget, Cranley said that the organization, whose mission involves improving the health outcomes of African Americans, could apply for funding through the $3 million allocated to the United Way to distribute amongst human services groups on a merit basis.

 

“We’re just asking them to compete like everyone else for human services,” Cranley said. “They should apply like everybody else.”

City pays Harry Black $350,000 to promise to not sue the city:

It seems like Mayor Cranley has discovered another "pocket veto" type of loophole in our City Charter, which is having a permanent Acting City Manager. In theory the City Manager is the CEO of the City but if the Mayor can keep an Acting City Manager in charge of the city for the next three years, he'll be completely under the Mayor's thumb. City Council normally gets to approve or reject the Mayor's nominee for City Manager, but by having a permanent Acting City Manager, City Council gets no say.

The Enquirer seems not to have noticed that there was never a search for another city manager.  Instead, they're on a quest for mold.

More of Harry Black's allegations about John Cranley are coming out:

 

“(T)he mayor would insert himself into the negotiation for the purpose of giving the developer what it wanted, including using money in the city’s capital budget to fund the project,” the letter alleges. “Mr. Black believed these ‘sweetheart’ deals were fiscally terrible for the city and had contributed to the city’s budget shortfall of $25 million for 2018.”

Kroger will help lead a new effort to make urban properties green, MayorJohn Cranley announced in his annual state-of-the-city speech on Tuesday.

 

The nation’s operator of traditional supermarkets will be a founding member of Cincinnati’s 2030 District. 

 

Cincinnati would be the 21st such district in the world. It is a public-private partnership spearheaded by the local environmental group, Green Umbrella. About $310,000 has been raised for the effort.

Only in Cranley's fantasy-land could a grocery store promising to get rid of plastic bags by 2030 rank as one of his personal achievements. 

 

We're five years into the Cranley nightmare and there is absolutely nothing to show for it, yet the media keeps kissing this guy's ass.

It was also revealed recently that the 56% of the city's streets are in fair, poor, or worse condition. There was only a 1 percentage point improvement in road quality from 2016 to 2017. So Cranley's biggest "accomplishment", the Capital Improvement Program, is barely making an improvement in the quality of our city streets. We borrowed $100 million for this program which we will be paying off for 30 years, and we're barely even outpacing the status quo.

Cranley announces city manager finalists

 

Mayor John Cranley told Cincinnati City Council members on Monday that he wants them to pick among two candidates to be the city manager – the current acting city manager, Patrick Duhaney, and Assistant City Manager John Juech.

 

“Over the past few months I have given a great deal of thought to who should become our permanent city manager,” Cranley wrote. “I have great confidence in John and Patrick based on their past and current performance.”

 

Cranley asked that each member of council interview Juech and Duhaney. Cranley said he would meet with each member to hear feedback before nominating one of the two to be the permanent city manager after Cranley returns from a trade mission to China.

He spent 6+ months to say the finalists are his acting city manager and his assistant city manager? Wow.

EDIT: And if they aren't approved, they are still in that position.

Awesome how much COAST, etc., criticized Mallory for going to China.  Not a peep when rich boy Cranley goes.  I bet it's just like when he went to the Dominican on that high school mission trip.

 

Also awesome how Dahoney was a bad guy, but Duhaney is a good guy, except it's actually the opposite.

The Enquirer claims that we're going to all see Cranley's text messages re: Black's ouster that were lost in the hot tub "accident":

Plus, we get a second A/B after the first A/B.

Just call him "Billboard Cranley":

 

Quote

To pay for the operating budget additions, Cranley proposes moving a $611,000 appropriation for the city’s affordable housing trust fund to the capital budget, eliminating $400,000 in vacant positions and leasing 10 spaces for billboards on city property along interstate highways, which will bring in $250,000 in additional revenue. That’s on top of the restored state funding.

Using Chiquita logic, none of these texts count as valid evidence since they weren't discussed openly in accordance with the law.
