CAUTION: ISSUE 3 IS A THREAT
THAT CINCINNATI CAN'T AFFORD
Voting NO on issue 3 is something we can all agree on. Republicans, Democrats, labor unions, and the business community have come together in a coalition to oppose this charter amendment.
Vote NO on Issue 3
CINCINNATI DESERVES BETTER
Than the Consequences of Issue 3
A Threat to Our Safety
This charter would force the city to reduce the size of the police force by 125 officers and shut down three fire engines. We have seen a record number of shootings and murders over the last few years, and we need all the first responders we can get.
A Blow to Our Social Services
This charter would cost $50 million, which makes up about 13% of the city’s general fund. This high price would force the city to cut essential social and health services that provide critical care when we need it most, especially during COVID-19.
A Hit to Our Paychecks
We pay enough taxes as it is, but this bill will take more. If this charter passes, our income taxes would need to be raised by over 15%, and our property taxes would need to be raised by 20%.
