On the issues: She said she is concerned that many Cincinnati neighborhoods are missing out on opportunities for economic development. "There are some neighborhoods that don't have a community council, much less a neighborhood development corporation." She said that while 3CDC has been good at revitalizing Downtown and Over-the-Rhine, "I would ask 3CDC to share their knowledge with other neighborhoods in the city, so they can benefit from new development too. I would love to see our citizens become more knowledgeable about economic development."
