The WeDemandAVote.Com coalition that last year force d the Pepper-Portune Super-Sized Jail tax to a vote, has re-grouped in 2008 to amend the Cincinnati City Charter to ban red light and speeding cameras.
Now, leaders from both the Republican and Democrat parties have endorsed the effort and joined the drive.
In June, Republican County Clerk Greg Hartman joined the coalition and has helped collect 700 of the needed signatures.
He joined the Hamilton County Republican Party in advancing the red light camera restrictions.
In July, Democratic Congressional Candidate Vic Wulsin endorsed the red drive as well.
“The days are numbered when City Council can raise revenue on the backs of Cincinnati motorists with these automated harassment machines,” said COAST Chairman Jason Gloyd. “We welcome the support of these leaders in this important drive for liberty.”
