    Where do Cincinnati's Mayoral candidates stand on business issues?

    Cincinnati City HallBusiness groups from across the City of Cincinnati are partnering to present the 2013 Mayoral Candidate Business Forum.

    The purpose of the forum is to provide the final two candidates for Cincinnati Mayor an opportunity to convey their ideas and opinions on issues of importance to the business community. It is imperative that business leaders understand where policy makers stand on issues such as taxes, transportation infrastructure, government regulations and responsible government, as these issues have a major impact on a business's ability to thrive and grow. The forum will be moderated by Cincinnati Enquirer Business Editor, Lee Ann Hamilton.
