Issue 8

Cincinnati, OH

#1 Feb 27, 2012
Issue 8 is being removed from the ballot. The Unions decided they didn't like it because their funding would no longer be earmarked!
Issue 9 Vote No

Cincinnati, OH

#2 Feb 27, 2012
Vote NO on the Huber Heights tax hike, Issue 9! Vote March 6th. The city has 48 million dollars and a shortfall of 1.6 million due to insurance rate increases (which they did not send out for a competitive bid) & worker comp claims. Don't be fooled the money isn't needed to keep us "safe". And by the way - the Unions want this money because of contracts out into place before they secured the funding. WE ARE BROKE!
No on Issue 9

Issue 9 Huber Heights - vote NO! The city is fining folks who have vote no signs in their yards. Funny how these signs weren't an issue until they were telling folks to vote no on a tax INCREASE against the city. Abuse of power...
Issue 9 Huber Heights

Cincinnati, OH

#6 Feb 27, 2012

Come support the rally Saturday March 3rd - 10:00am - 12:00pm @ the corner of Chambersburg & 201 in front of Taco Bell! Vote NO on issue 9. The city has more than enough! WE ARE BROKE!
No Tax Hike

Columbus, OH

Issue 9 is not about your safety. Please read the ballot wording. During Huber Heights city council meetings the council stated that they have had a $500,000 increase for insurance costs and taken a hit for bwc claims. The city refuses to make cuts or pass costs along to employees. The city has a budget of approximately 48 MILLION $'s and now they want another $1.6 million from YOUR POCKET! Let's not forget all the union contracts were signed into place early enough so NO impact would be felt by any of the public employees. Let's also NOT FORGET that the city DID NOT send out formal request for quotes for insurance - they were told by their broker - nobody will quote this and the price will increase from $1.7 MILLION to $2.2 MLLION dollars. The city shoved the increase through and now they want YOUR MONEY! The city must be held accountable and they MUST STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY! VOTE NO ON ISSUE 9 HUBR HEIGHTS!

Issue 9 Huber Heights NO

Vote no on issue 9. The unions have combined and have sent out a deceiving letter. The claim is that all new monies from the tax increase have been earmarked specifically for fire, police, and ems. If this is true - the wording on the actual ballot is deceptive. Is the city lying or is it the all mighty powerful money grubbing unions? Tell Huber Heights NO, keep your money in your wallet!!
NO on Issue 9 HH

Have you heard this... Oh, the tax rate in Huber Heights was 2.25% a few years ago and the city gave it back - hilarious. I sat in on a city council meeting and the director of finance clearly stated that when the increase originally went from 1.9 to 2.25, they had too much money, they were acting as a piggyback for the city. Can you imagine what the receipts must have looked like to know that they were ripping off the community - they really had no choice but to give it back as concerned citizens put pressure on them to do so.
And here's the other funny... The City was keeping your taxes low at 2%... Low, really? That is not a low tax rate. And surely 2.25% is definitely not low either. It's going to be really hard to grow this City when the rates just go up, up, up. Factor in school tax rates into your property tax and it would almost be dead even to move to a much nicer city. Huber school tax rates are one of the highest in the area - but that's for the next election...
