Voters Reject Cincinnati’s Affordable Housing Ballot Issue – News

“Voters on Tuesday rejected Issue 3, a charter amendment designed to force city leaders to provide additional housing for Cincinnati’s low-income residents,” reports Lucy May.

Issue 3 was soundly rejected: 73 percent of voters said no.

According to a separate article by Mariel Carbone and Kristien Swilley, proponents of Issue 3 put a positive spin on the defeat, saying the campaign raised the profile of the issues of affordable housing in the city.

Additional news coverage on the vote focuses on the union opposition to Issue 3.
