ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT REFORM PANEL RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORT – July 29, 2021
The Economic Development Reform Panel (“EDRP” or “Panel”) submits this Report pursuant to City Council Ordinance No. 384-2020. This ordinance provides the Panel’s mission: to study “the City’s development process” and “mak[e] recommendations. . . regarding best practices and ways to…better insulate it from political influence and cronyism.” Referring to the indictments and conviction that spurred creation of the EDRP, the ordinance observed that “citizens of Cincinnati have lost trust and confidence in City Council.”
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.
