* 1. Do you support the state proposal to create high speed rail between Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati?

* 2. Do you support the proposal to add casinos in Ohio, including one at Broadway Commons, which would lead to $11 million annually to Hamilton County and $20 million to Cincinnati in new revenues?

* 3. A charter change that might appear on the City November ballot would stop all investments in passenger rail in the City pending a separate referendum by citizens. Do you support this Charter change?

* 4. A company wants to build a port/rail terminal on the Ohio (around Queensgate) to create a connection point between Southern Ohio and the global stream of commerce, via the Ohio and the Gulf of Mexico. Do you support the City allowing this project to move forward?
