This week, the Cincinnati NAACP held a mayoral forum, and we’ve got video footage. Watch Dr. Brad “McDreamy” Wenstrup and Jason “The Dean” H aap. Here are their main speeches, each one at about ten minutes. Check back at The Beacon in a few days, and we’ll have the question sessions uploaded, where you can watch Wenstrup talk about his friendship with Joe Deters, and see Tom Luken yell at The Dean for potentially supporting Amtrak!
In Wenstrup’s speech, he talks about his experience as both a health care professional and an Iraq veteran. He talks about the need for leadership, saying City Hall needs less red tape to promote small business. He says neighborhoods need to be safe in order to attract businesses.
The Dean says the local NAACP should be careful not to support Republicans just because they dislike the local Democrats. He calls for an independent political movement. He is a supporter of President Obama’s passenger rail plan, so he opposes the NAACP petition language while also opposing the Streetcar. He calls for the City’s anti-marijuana ordinance to be repealed, for the neighborhoods to receive funds from the sale of the Blue Ash airport, for the neighborhoods to self-identify their greatest asset which could benefit from development, for a hiring freeze on new police, and for an elimination of the costly and unnecessary mayoral primary.
