 Cincinnati City Council Voting Strategy: If you want our Cincinnati City Council to change public policy to favor voters, not bipartisan special interests, do not vote for any incumbent council member. The re-election of incumbents had been just about 100% for twenty years. In 2003 one non-incumbent was elected to replace an incumbent. Christopher Smitherman was a new Charterite face on council. Independent Damon Lynch nearly made it two new non-incumbents on Council by coming in 10th less than a thousand votes behind David Crowley, a one term Democratic council person. Sam Malone merely replaced a Republican with a Republican. 2003 was the biggest change in Council in 20 years. Democrat Paul Booth was out due to term limits. Booth served four terms. You could reasonably suggest that a Democrat, Booth, was replaced by a Republican, Sam Malone. Republican Chris Monzel did not receive enough votes to be re-elected. Monzel was the history making incumbent loser. His pretty family "portrait" ad campaign, unsupported by any compelling campaign message related to solving Cincinnati's economic development problems, probably cost Monzel the election.

The voters of Cincinnati are to be congratulated for putting new faces on Cincinnati City Council. There is hope now that the trend toward greater representation will continue in 2011.

Your vote for Independent, minor party, and Charterite candidates can be more POWERFUL if you do not waste your vote on a favorite Council person or persons. VOTE FOR NEW COUNCIL MEMBERS, NOT INCUMBENTS. We can elect more new council members in 2011 and a new mayor in 2013. Register to vote. Good government is possible.

We can build a city of hope for everyone. The 2003 election year was proof that Cincinnati voters are able to elect new faces to Cincinnati City Council. More changes can be made with increased voter registration and participation. Of course voters can do nothing without more candidate choices on the ballot. We all owe our thanks for the new voices that Damon Lynch and Brian Garry carried onto the ballot to give new independent choices to the voters of Cincinnati. The Charter party offered us three candidates continuing their long independent reform tradition. Charterites have been a positive political voice for Cincinnatians since the 1920s. The future of Cincinnati politics can be on a renewed nonpartisan independent course. Special interest bipartisan control is too strong. Fire incumbents in this new century, in the same way the political bosses were put out of power by the Charter Committee in the 1920s . Nonpartisan independent political participation could provide the new leadership needed in Cincinnati. There have been few changes since 2003!

Can a brighter day be on the horizon in Cincinnati politics?. 2011
