This weekend, The Cincinnati Beacon’s Print Edition of the NAACP Voter Education Guide will hit newsstands. (And yes, we will post an updated list of locations.) I encourage everyone to get a hard-copy of the guide to get a nice profile of several candidates based on the NAACP questionnaire. We decided to compliment this with a web version that compares candidates by question. So for today, we begin with the following inquiry and all responses gathered:
Do you believe that the city should tax stock-options of companies for the purpose of generating revenue for the City? Please explain.
Justin Jeffre (Green):
Cincinnati needs to tax stock options to reverse the current bad habit of giving hand-outs to the favored few corporations on the backs of the working class and the poor. If company executives threaten to leave the City, they do so facing long commutes with the rising price of gas. The needs of the whole City should go before the needs of a few executives.
THis is a letter that was written to Our Yahoo Group by a Friend of Justins!! :) It's great to know that his friends support his endeavours & still scour the internet for sites to help promote Justin!! I posted the letter below!
Thank you for approving my membership to your group. I got a start up email about supporting Nick and Jeff and Drew, but I wanted to take a minute to explain how you can help Justin Jeffre, too!
As you may be aware, Justin has emerged as a media activist and a grassroots politician back in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Right now, he is running for Cincinnati City Council. If you don't know anything about Cincinnati politics, this is a really charged election and some candidates and businesses spend A LOT of money getting their people elected.
Justin is definitely viewed as an outsider to the political system, but he is a dedicated and smart candidate.
You can learn more about him at his campaign web page: http://www.justinjeffre.com
Anyway, if any members of this group can do anything to support Justin's campaign, please let me know. If you live in Cincinnati, maybe you can get a yard sign. Or maybe you can visit the site and use PayPal to give a small donation -- anything from $5, to $50, to $500!
Thanks so much for your time, and I hope you can find a way to support Justin Jeffre for the upcoming election!
