New Motion From David Mann Is Aimed at the Creation of a Small Blue-Ribbon Panel to Study the Cincinnati’s Development Process to Better Insulate It from Political Influence and Cronyism…
Council Member Mann is calling for appointment of a COMMISSION TO CLEAN UP CITY COUNCIL.
Mann said: “The current crisis is the opportunity for needed reform. We must restore trust in the integrity and commitment to public service of Cincinnati’s elected officials.”
The Commission would consist of a balanced and diverse group of nine leaders not personally involved in development projects with the city. It will be co-chaired by an academic leader and a business leader.
The Commission is charged with nine different areas of review and study and is asked to develop recommendations no later than May 1, 2021.
The Commission is asked to review any links between campaign contributions and development contracts with the city, particularly developments with significant public investment and incentives including tax abatement.
The Commission is asked to address whether contributors to city candidate should be prohibited from city development contracts for 24 months after the last contribution. The Commission is also asked to recommend any needed amendments to the Charter of the City.
“We have a crisis unlike any I have seen in all my years of service to the City. We must deal with it accordingly.” Mann stated.
David Mann for Cincinnati Mayor
I have served this community as councilman, mayor, member of congress and, most recently, as vice mayor and chair of the budget and finance committee. In this most challenging time of unrest and the coronavirus, experience and wisdom count more than ever before. Humbly, I believe that my years of public service have prepared me to be mayor in this particularly challenging moment. I ask for your help on this journey.
