As Rob Richardson leads the drive to increase costs of the Metropolitan Sewer District by forcing Council to adopt the "Responsible Bidder" ordinance, consider his role as Board member of the University of Cincinnati.
As a UC Trustee, Richardson oversees tens of millions of contracts annually. Would be be so reckless with those tax dollars as to imperil the financial stability of that institution?
If the answer is "yes," the UC's financial stability is imperiled by his irresponsibility. If the answer is "no," then how dare he take a hypocritical decision on City contracts versus UC contracts.
And beyond his direct role in UC contracts, it should be a matter of considerable consternation for the UC Board that he is spearheading an ordinance that will undermine the fiscal soundness of Cincinnati and MSD, as well as expose the City and county to additional legal fees, and liability to the US EPA.
