We will meet at 3:30 PM outside the Duke Convention Center. Look for our teal CUFA shirts! Board Member Roger Davis will testify on behalf of CUFA, but all are welcome to sign up for testimony. If you prefer to participate by Zoom, you must sign up by 2:00 PM Wednesday for this hearing. RSVP below, and we'll send you the link in your confirmation.
Here are some points CUFA will be making on the proposed City of Cincinnati Budget:
- End property tax abatements for the wealthy. They are not working to alleviate the 40,000 unit affordable housing shortage and hurts our schools in poor and minority communities;
- Invest in Community Development Corporations that provide affordable housing, instead of slashing the budget for Community & Economic development; In this proposed budget, that is the deepest cut (70%) and is unacceptable;
- End the militarization of local police. Cincinnati should ban the purchase and use of military grade equipment for local policing and re-examine the role and funding of police to see whether some of their funding could be directed into programs that build community and reduce crime.
- 3CDC should not be running our public spaces. Fountain Square, Washington Park and Ziegler Park are ours, and should be controlled by publicly elected officials for the benefit of the public.
