Another Great Article from CityBeat on Moroski for Council

Hannah McCartney from CityBeat writes: “If every local politician were more like Mike Moroski, Cincinnati would be a better place”.

In this article out today in the Election Issue, CityBeat summarizes Mike’s personality like this:

But Moroski has earned his own spotlight with his reputation as a staggeringly authentic, earnest and easygoing Cincinnatian bubbling over with integrity, enthusiasm, open-mindedness and morality that’s not just rare in politics; it’s a rare combination to find anywhere.

There is also attention given to his positions on issues near and dear to his heart, like reducing recidivism, widespread poverty in our neighborhoods, accessibility and visitability, and economically moral initiatives. Read the entire article for yourself…and while you are at it, read the whole issue!

Again, thank you CityBeat for your thoughtful, in-depth reporting.

CityBeat Endorses Candidates for Mayor and Council, including Moroski

CityBeat endorsed Roxanne Qualls for Mayor, and well as eight other candidates in this article. There was also a nice profile page on Mike, which included this quote: “While many council candidates fixated on vague budget and neighborhood issues at a CityBeat-hosted candidates forum on Oct. 5, Moroski trumpeted social impact bonds, a little-known policy that could help former jail inmates get their lives back together and lower the costs of imprisonment.”

Thank you, CityBeat!

City Council Candidate Grateful for Support of Cincinnati’s Citizens and Leaders, Plans Press Conference to Re-file Petitions

CINCINNATI, Ohio (August 19, 2013) – When Hamilton County Board of Elections officials announced last Tuesday there were technical problems with petitions submitted by first-time candidate Mike Moroski, he was unfazed and immediately sprang into action. In impressive fashion, Moroski and his team came together to collect over 1,000 signatures in five days.

In addition to his team, Moroski also credits the strong sense of community in Cincinnati for the accomplishment, “I have never seen a team mobilize as quickly or efficiently over any cause in my entire life. In only five short days, Team Moroski has gathered over 1,000 signatures on our petitions for the Board of Elections,” he said, “Grassroots Democracy is alive and well in the Ohio River Valley, and I very much look forward to continuing this momentum for the next four years as an elected member of Cincinnati City Council.”

Moroski plans to turn in the petitions Wednesday, August 21, while also holding a press conference to mark the occasion. Instead of a challenge, Moroski sees the experience as an opportunity.

“When we received the news last Tuesday that we were 46 signatures short, Team Moroski immediately mobilized and turned this situation into yet another opportunity to make new friends. We have been all over this great city this past week, and the outpouring of support from voters has proved, yet again, that we will be victorious in November,” Moroski said.

He also took time to express his gratitude, “Thank you to all who have helped gather signatures – particularly the campaigns of Roxanne Qualls, Laure Quinlivan, Wendell Young and Greg Landsman – and community leaders such as Derek Bauman, John Eby, Pete Witte, Leslie Rich, Nikki Mayhew, Evan Hennessy, Noel Prows, Craig and Tabitha Hochscheid, Ryan Messer and Jimmy Musuraca, Trinette Zawadzski and Paige Malott.”

Moroski’s press conference will be held at the Hamilton County Board of Elections, 824 Broadway Street, Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at 10:00am.
