Cincinnati City Council

Recommended Posts

If he selected Reece as the replacement, there could be a gentleman's agreement that she doesn't run for mayor in 2021. I agree with Ozie Davis. He isn't organized well enough to be a good candidate in future elections. I think he would be a bad choice.

 

I think Bauman would be the best option. I have some reservations about Dillingham.

 

Not sure who else is thinking about running in 2021. There were a lot of people who applied for Murray's seat and didn't run, and I'm sure there will be a lot of Dems running in 2021 who didn't in 2017.

The Enquirer article has more on the driver/passenger background: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/crime/crime-and-courts/2020/03/03/police-tamaya-dennards-car-reported-stolen-crashed/4937564002/

 

"Simpson was cited for failing to maintain reasonable control. He has prior convictions for aggravated burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and cocaine trafficking, according to court records. The records also show Squire has multiple prior convictions for cocaine possession. Neither man has been charged in the theft of the car belonging to Dennard's mother."

 

How is it that neither were charged in the theft? Because it wasn't?

 

"Police records show that Dennard reported the car stolen on Feb. 13. She said the car was taken without her permission from a parking garage at her residence. The records do not describe how the car was taken."

Reports are it could be Kearney who would be an excellent pick. I still would love to see Alecia Reese but I dont think they will wait until the County Commission primary is settled. 


There is a push from the progressive side for Dillingham, and I hope to God it is not her. 

 

Whomever it is should be someone who understands the business community and has a good working relationship with them. The one thing about PG is that he understands the business community. Kearney and Reese do. Tamaya did not, although to her credit she was trying and making an effort. Dillingham has her constituents that she cares about and everyone else be damned. She would be a horrible member of council.

Pastor, Smitherman agree on Murray replacement

 

Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman and Councilman Jeff Pastor will appoint Betsy Sundermann to fill Councilwoman Amy Murray's seat when she resigns tomorrow.

 

Sundermann, a Hamilton County magistrate, is expected to be sworn in at Wednesday night's council meeting.

 

The Business Courier obtained a copy of paperwork Smitherman and Pastor signed appointing Sundermann. Pastor made the announcement after signing it at the Economic Growth and Zoning Committee, which Murray chairs.

 

On Monday afternoon, Murray reiterated, after a weekend of controversy, that Sundermann was an "excellent choice."

Quote

Jan-Michele Lemon Kearney, an attorney, realtor and publisher of the Cincinnati Herald, is expected to be named Wednesday to replace former Councilwoman Tamaya Dennard on the Cincinnati City Council, according to sources and an email obtained by the Business Courier.

 

Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld, who was designated by Dennard to name her replacement, has scheduled a 4:30 p.m. announcement today in Avondale.

 

Sittenfeld did not immediately respond to a text message seeking comment.

 

Lemon Kearney grew up in Avondale and graduated from Walnut Hills High School, Dartmouth University and Harvard University, where she got her J.D. She worked for five years at Taft, Stettinius & Hollister. She also obtained a real estate license and worked as a Realtor, taking over the Herald when her husband, Eric Kearney, became a state senator in 2005.

 

Lemon Kearney is expected to run for a full term on council in 2021.

^ A wise choice. Much better than someone like Dillingham who would not be a conducive member of council. 

 

Kearney is someone who understands how to work with the business community and can ensure the city will prosper.

Councilman wants free parking next to restaurants

 

Cincinnati Councilman Chris Seelbach wants the city to offer free pick-up parking spaces next to and near restaurants in the city that currently have metered parking spaces in response to the ban on dine-in eating throughout Ohio because of the coronavirus 2019.

 

Seelbach has introduced a motion directing the administration to use best practices to make the changes, with the amount of time, number of meters affected and other details to be determined.

 

Council is expected to take up the motion today at its 1 p.m. Budget and Finance Committee meeting on Monday, but Seelbach said the administration already is making plans to implement it.

City to free up parking spaces for restaurant pickup and delivery

Each meter selected will be available for free parking for 15 minutes. It is soliciting input from business owners about where the free zones should be.

 

Businesses that want a pickup and drop-off area near their business should call 513-352-6280 to speak with a parking facilities supervisor or email matthew.hulme@cincinnati-oh.gov.

Now they should make transit free to help people who can't afford cars. I don't think the city has that power, but still.
