Election Day is May 6th - vote “yes” on Issues 1 and 3
Ohio Primary elections are just one week from today on Tuesday, May 6. The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber supports two ballot issues
on the upcoming ballot and encourages you to vote “yes” on Issue 1 – the
Ohio State Capital Infrastructure Program Renewal and Issue 3 – the Hamilton
County DDS Levy Renewal.
Issue 1 is a renewal of Ohio’s State Capital Infrastructure
Program (SCIP), a successful program with bipartisan support that has provided
critical funding for local road, bridge, sewer and water projects for 27 years,
including $320 million in grants and loans to projects in Hamilton County
alone. A renewal of the SCIP will not raise taxes.
Issue 3, the DDS levy renewal, authorizes $73.2M per year over five years
to provide critical services to residents with complex medical and social
needs, without increasing taxes on the business community. “The Chamber
is proud to support the DDS levy renewal. The services provided help
individuals with disabilities learn skills that lead to good jobs and better
lives,” said Jason Kershner, Interim Managing Director of Government Affairs
for the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.
