CCPC Statement re: Ohio Supreme Court Ruling on Q Referendum Petitions
For Immediate Release –
The Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus is very pleased that the Ohio Supreme Court has ruled in favor of allowing the democratic process to play itself out in the Quicken Loans Arena renovations referendum issue.
We are hopeful that the City of Cleveland accepts the Ohio Supreme Court's decision, and does not attempt another made up out of the blue legal stunt designed to impede or delay the verification of the the 20,000 signatures submitted this spring.
CCPC is extremely confident that, once the signature verification process is completed by the County Board of Elections, the $88 million question of using Cleveland taxpayer dollars to finance the Q Renovations will be decided where it should be decided: by a vote of Cleveland taxpayers this November.
