BREAKING: Judge Rules in Our Favor, Cincinnatians Will Get Referendum on Parking Deal

March 28, 2013

Judge Winkler has made his decision:  The referendum petition drive will be allowed to continue.  If we get enough signatures in the next few days, the people will get to vote in November on whether to repeal City Council’s “privatization” of city parking meters, lots, and garages.

If you’re a Cincinnati voter and want to sign the petition but haven’t yet, one option will be this Saturday:

. . . 9 AM to 5 PM in Mt. Lookout Square.  We can accept with drive-thru signatures as well as signatures from pedestrians.

This is the last weekend we will be collecting signatures, as the deadline for the petition drive is next Wednesday or Thursday.  We at that time must have 8,500 good signatures turned in to the City.

We are many, many signatures short of the goal.  We need volunteers to collect (anyone in who lives in the state of Ohio), signatures from City residents and money to pay petitioners if you don’t have time to collect yourself.

Any Ohio resident can collect signatures, but only Cincinnati voters can sign.  And of course anyone anywhere is welcome to donate to COAST!

If you want to collect signatures to get this on the ballot, call Tom Brinkman, 237-4054.  (Cincinnati’s area code is 513.)
