CINCINNATI (Jeff Hirsh) -- Changes ahead at Cincinnati City Hall as voters appear to express frustration over the streetcar project.
Cincinnati voters elect a new mayor in John Cranley. Cranley beat current vice-mayor Roxanne Qualls by a wide margin, especially in the surrounding neighborhoods outside the urban core of downtown, Over-the-Rhine and Clifton.
Wednesday the mayor-elect is speaking out on his vision for the city. Local 12's Jeff Hirsh has more on what he had to say.
Cincinnati's next mayor welcomed cameras into his Mount Lookout home Wednesday. Fresh off an overwhelming victory in Tuesday night's election John Cranley wanted to make his top priorities for the next four years clear.
Many of those involve spreading economic growth and pride in all of Cincinnati's neighborhoods. He spoke of dressing main arteries into the city saying streets such as Hamilton Avenue, Warsaw and Harrison would benefit from beautification projects to become more like Victory Parkway.
Mister Cranley also feels granting a much higher percentage of city contracts to minority owned businesses will spur growth in different neighborhoods. He also wants to use the model that led to the development in Over-the-Rhine expanded.
Some of his plans are much less complicated, Cranley also plans to make sure residents can set out more than one garbage can. He believes that will lead to less illegal dumping and cleaner better neighborhoods.
