Tony Fischer Interview

Adam's interview with City Council Candidate Tony Fischer is available here in WMA format.
Here's a few highlights from the interview:
  • Born and raised in Cincinnati
  • Spent five years in the U.S. Army - he was inspired to enlist by a long-standing desire to serve his country, and believes his experience in the Army would help him because he's used to working with people under stressful situations
  • Supports the streetcar issue, since it will connect the two largest employment zones of the city, and gives us a competitve advantage over similar Midwestern cities
  • Emphasizes the support of strategic infrastructure projects that will create jobs and help the city once we come out of the recession
  • Thinks we can do small things, like building a visitor's center downtown, and bigger things, like building partnerships between local universities and corporations, can make Cincinnati a more welcoming place for people to relocate to
  • The Cincinnati Retirement System pension fund needs to be supported, but is in better shape than most think, and is healthier than most funds for similar sized cities
  • Supports the local beers, and really wants to try Burger when it comes back
