A group of Cincinnatians want to change the way we elect our city council members. The Fair Cincy group is proposing that five district councilors be elected to better serve the 52 boroughs of Cincinnati. The remaining four council members would be elected collectively or citywide.
Fair Cincy is now circulating a petition to present their proposal to amend the charter to voters when they vote in March 2020. The group consists of Henry Frondorf and Matt Woods, both Charterites; Pastor Lesley Jones, a Democrat; and Tamie Sullivan a self-described presenter. Frondorf, Sullivan and Jones were unsuccessful candidates for the council in 2017, but only Jones says she could run again in 2021.
Joining the Cincinnati Edition to discuss the proposal to change the way Cincinnati elects its councilors is Fair Cincy member Lesley Jones; Matt Woods; and Henry Frondorf; and Cincinnati City Councilor Greg Landsman.
