Fallon Research: Majority supports Arts tax

The Enquirer reports that the push for a County-wide Arts tax has support in Hamilton County.  That's bad news.

The good news is that it does not stand a snowball's chance in hell of getting to the ballot, or passing if it did.  Until our City fathers get off the jag of wasting money on every flashy new idea that comes down the pike (Streetcars, Underground Transit Centers, NURFC and a $4.4 million glass atrium atop City Hall), the voters aren't going to give them any more money.

Mayor Mallory, Roxanne Qualls and the "progressives" on City Council are actually doing more damage to their big-government objectives than advancing it, as their choices for expenditures have been so consistently poor.

We want Cincinnati and Hamilton County to succeed, but we don't accomplish that by chasing wild geese with our scare resources.

    I'd support buying myself a pro sports team, but there's not enough money and too many other bills to pay. Same for Hamilton County. People should read through the many documents available about Hamilton County's financial situation so they can be properly informed.

  2. A majority support it, but it doesn't have a chance of passing? No, I think if it has a majority, it certainly has at least a chance of passing.

  3. No chance of passing. None. The voters of Hamilton County "won't be fooled again," not once we have a robust community debate.

  4. Let's get this on the ballot so we can sustain arts in our community. I'll gladly to vote for higher taxes to be a first class city.

  5. Or better yet, give all the money to the arts that you want, and let everyone else make the same decision for themselves.

  7. When the sacred title of "Past President, Blue Chip Young Republicans" is uttered, is it proper etiquette for one to stand up and salute?

  8. CincyCapell/Craig Hochscheid, the only time you or your fat wife Tabitha Hochscheid stand up and salute is when dessert gets served.
