Cincinnati's Mayoral Candidates Vote
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Both of Cincinnati's mayoral candidates voted early Tuesday. Voters will decide the city's first new mayor in eight years.
Roxanne Qualls voted at the main branch of the library. John Cranley cast his ballot at the Knox presbyterian church in Hyde Park.
Cranley and Qualls are both democrats. However, they are deeply divided on some issues including the streetcar and the parking lease.
Cranley says "we gave people a very clear choice. If you want to continue to have your property tax raised to build a streetcar, vote for my opponent. If you think property taxes are too high and we need to reprioritize public safety and jobs and job training and schools and safety, then vote for me."
"I think this is a critical election. i've spent my time since returning to council in 2007, making sure we invest in developments that bring jobs, and business and residents to the city. People are celebrating our progress and we have to continue that," says Qualls.
