Congratulations to Harris, Thanks to Voinovich

Congratulations to Greg Harris, the newest member of Cincinnati City Council. For a lot of reasons, Greg will make a strong Councilmember. I really look forward to working with him on his priorities of public safety and economic growth.

I was also pleased to see so many skilled and qualified people interview for the position; it's gratifying to know so many energetic and qualified citizens want to serve our community.

As for the retirement of George Voinovich, I want to join the many people across party lines who are thanking him for his decades of service to Ohio.

I got to know Senator Voinovich best when he, I and others from the community toured Price Hill and spoke to citizens in Northside only a few months ago. I was so impressed by his deep knowledge of community issues--as he walked through a community, you could watch and see that he was doing so with his Mayor, County Auditor and County Commissioner "glasses" on, having served in all those positions.

While he's leaving in 2010, I look forward to continuing to work with the Senator on foreclosure and economic revitalization issues.
