It Was Always A Lie That Public Money To Build Stadiums For Reds And Bengals Would Help Downtown Cincinnati

When hundreds of millions of dollars in public funding was approved in the late 1990’s for new stadiums for the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals, the public was told that these new stadiums would help revitalize Downtown Cincinnati.

When you take a walk around Downtown Cincinnati, you know that this promise was not kept. Downtown is no better, and quite possibly worse, than when the stadiums were built.

Though the fact is that the public money was always about helping the Reds and Bengals and never about the larger community.

Imagine if the public money had been spent to help people buy homes or get health insurance or go to school.

  2. all the staduims do is increase the amount of idiots with brooms to clean up after the game. we are laying off cops but we have street sweepers everyday in front of the starbucks to wash away the piss from the homeless people. as always we treat the sypmtoms not the disease.

  3. Maybe we would have fewer homeless people is more money had gone to social services and job creation and much less money had gone to building stadiums.
