Jeff Hirsch closed his report with this line:
The streetcar project has kind of become like a whack-a-mole game. As soon as backers successfully deal with one issue or another ... yet another pops up and opponents grab hold.One question Jeff. What issue have streetcar backers actually successfully dealt with? They've kicked a lot of cans down the road, they've robbed Peter to pay Paul. They've lied about the costs (see Dohoney's line that he never expected the bids to come in on budget). In short, the streetcar backers have been selling the people of Cincinnati a bill of goods.
