So, it appears there will be no referendum on the city of Cincinnati’s parking lease agreement on the ballot this fall.
Unless, that is, in the unlikely event that the Ohio Supreme Court decides to take up the appeal of the decision made by the Ohio First District Court of Appeals this week saying the agreement is not subject to referendum because it was passed in March as an emergency ordinance.
But nobody on either side of this really expects this to happen.
A good old-fashioned family fight is a frequent occurrence in the Democratic Party, but this year's race for Cincinnati mayor won't be one of them.
The party leadership, in a recent blast e-mail to the party faithful made it clear they won't be taking sides in the battle between two Democratic mayoral candidates - Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls and former council member John Cranley.
Caleb Faux, the Hamilton County Democratic Party's executive director, said neither candidate has asked the party for an endorsement.
