Four-year terms come to Cincinnnati in 2013

In 2013, the Cincinnati mayor’s race is likely to suck most of the air out of the room, as it has since the city adopted direct election of the mayor in 2001.


But it is not the only important race in Cincinnati next year.


There is this little thing called a city council election; and it will be vastly different this year than any other since the city charter was created in the 1920s.

The repairs were finished Thursday.  A final inspection performed Friday determined the bridge could go back to the 11-ton weight limit.
