Rob Richardson, from left, Bobby Maly and Joe Sprengard are co-chairmen of Cincinnatians for Progress. The group is working to stop the frequent ballot initiatives they say derail the city’s ability to move forward.
As far as Rob Richardson, Bobby Maly and Joe Sprengard are concerned, the streetcar ballot initiative isn’t about the city’s $200 million streetcar proposal, not at all.
The ballot language would require a majority vote of the people before Cincinnati city government could proceed with any kind of passenger rail service or planning throughout the city. And that, they argue, could stop economic progress dead in its tracks.
