". . . The more people who live in the city, the more property taxes that are generated and contributed to our coffers. The more money that people spend in the city, the more sales taxes generated for our city budget. The more money our city has to spend, the more services we can provide to all residents — in all neighborhoods not just downtown.It makes economic sense to focus investment downtown to generate dollars for investment in the inner suburbs and throughout the city." – Joan Kaup, Cincinnati City Council Candidate.
