Chamber issues ballot positions and scorecard
Although the 2011 general election on November 8 is considered to be "off year", voters will determine the outcome of a number of proposed tax levies, amendments to the state's constitution and the City of Cincinnati's Charter, and the makeup of Cincinnati's City Council. This year's election results will directly affect Cincinnati USA's job creators, as outcomes will play a huge role in determining the type of business climate we have.
Over the past several months, Chamber staff and volunteers have invested countless hours collecting information on ballot issues, levies and interviewing stakeholders and candidates to provide you with all the information that can help you and your employees make an informed decision on Election Day. The pages linked below are the Chamber's positions on ballot measures that are relevant to the business community, as well as our City Council Candidate Scorecard, which reflects where candidates are on issues important to business.
The Chamber urges you to get engaged this year by helping us communicate where the business community stands on these important issues during the fall campaign. Please send this information along to your co-workers, too, so that they, too, can educate themselves on what the elections mean to your business.
