Issue 3 draws opposition from Charter Committee and Democrats

Cincinnati City Hall

So far, political organizations have declined to endorse Issue 3. 

Two of Cincinnati's political parties now oppose Issue 3, the sweeping charter amendment that would lower council pay, allow for the recall of the mayor and make several other major changes. 

The Charter Committee on Tuesday announced it will oppose the charter amendment proposed by state Rep. Tom Brinkman, a Republican from Mount Lookout. The Charterites join the Cincinnati Democrats, who voted against it this past Saturday, and two mayoral candidates in opposition to Issue 3. 

The Hamilton County Republican Party hasn't taken a position yet. The Republican will meet Wednesday night to discuss it, Hamilton County GOP Chairman Alex Triantafilou said. 

Charter Committee President Darrick Dansby told The Enquirer the party opposes Issue 3 because there wasn't any public input.
