CityBeat on the CityLink Appeal

Checking out the new Porkopolis blog from CityBeat:

City Link Loses Appeal

Pretty good take...

In February, the West End Community Council voted to oust President Dale Mallory — brother of Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory — from office. Several members were upset that he’d used rules to block a vote to oppose City Link. Although Dale Mallory denied any connections to City Link at the time, since his impeachment it was revealed he lobbied for City Link while working for the Cincinnati Empowerment Corp., which administers federal anti-poverty funds.

City Link’s supporters and people who have done work on their behalf are a veritable web of local movers and shakers. Besides Mallory, they include attorney and conservative GOP activist Christopher Finney, attorney and Hamilton County Democratic Party Chair Tim Burke, lobbyist Dick Weiland and a religious group affiliated with County Commissioner Phil Heimlich.

The Porkopolis blog also has a new entry on an old favorite, The Genesis Redevelopment Corporation:

Genesis Scandal Figure Back at City Hall

For about a decade beginning in 1991, the community council and Genesis received more than $825,000 and promised to build 130 housing units, but built just one house and repaired 11 other units. Most of the money came from federal grants administered by the city. Board executives included several well-connected West End residents such as George Beatty, who now owns Junebug’s Bar-B-Que and Steaks, as board president; his brother, Howard, who is now awaiting a verdict in a murder trial, also was a board member.

Check em both out.

Genesis seems to be making the news lately. Funny how history repeats itself.

CityBeat has come around on Dale as of late. I doubt they will be endorsing him in the 32nd.

I am very disapointed in this blog. It has been four days and no postings.

Also I noticed that you removed a few of my comments on the drunk tank. is this a liberal sensored blog?
