    In addition to the North American cities listed here, there are cities all across the world that have light rail and/or streetcar systems. Streetcar opponents claiming that there is no way to know the impact transportation systems will have on our city evidently have not taken the time to study for themselves the impact these system have had all across the US, and around the world.

    If Cincinnati were the first city to come up with this new idea of rail transportation, their skepticism would be legitimate and welcomed. But we have already seen the effects in literally DOZENS of cities. The vast majority of the skepticism is baseless, unproductive, and downright ignorant when considering the amont of data that exists supporting rail transportation in its varios forms.

    Don’t outlaw choice. Vote No on 9!
