The very last thing Kasich wanted to see happen was for Cincinnati - with a brand new, public-transit fleet of beautifully designed Spanish streetcars all its own - to outpace and outshine Columbus by connecting its CBD to its "Uphill District" encompassing the hospitals and a university of over 40,000 students. So he simply kneecapped the whole thing by yanking $52-million that would have connected the two centers, quite possibly through a big uphill transit tunnel.

Next came (and also despising of the streetcar) arguably one of the worst mayors ever elected in Cincy. For reasons that needn't be elaborated on here, Mayor John Cranley launched a personal vendetta of his own to bring down the entire operation. It's fortunate that KC has avoided this level of sabotage of its own streetcar system.
The sad part I've noticed that not much is being done to improve Cincinnati's roads either.

This comparison has been done with a poll and KC was smoking Indy.

He does say so... because it's true. If you don't like it, take it up with the other voters.

P.S. It wasn't even close

Nope, the guy said that This thread has been done and you said "if you say so". One of those 2 comments were verifiable fact and the other was a pointless attempt to minimize. City Data is not the end all be all but in this case the guy said something and it's true. It is what it is.

If we are strictly talking talking about this thread then what was the purpose of your post? It clearly had nothing to do with this one.
