Anti-Rail Charter Amendment Gaining Statewide Attention

Check out these two recent articles warning citizens about the dangers of allowing COAST and NAACP's anti-rail charter amendment to pass. Hopefully Cincinnati voters will listen with an open mind to these warnings so that this measure fails. As stated in the articles, this charter amendment could have devastating effects not only on Cincinnati's future, but also potentially Cleveland and Columbus too!

I am glad that this issue is gaining Statewide popularity. Maybe it will begin to put pressure on streetcar opponants to back off!
