VERY IMPORTANT VOTER INFORMATION:
Some polling places have changed locations for the November 2019 election. For example, the Sycamore G voting precinct, which includes the Heitmeyer Farms neighborhood, will now vote at the Power Mission Baptist Church at 8501 Montgomery Road, rather than in the Sycamore Township Administration Building. Others may have also changed.
The Hamilton County Board of Elections will be mailing out polling place notices to voters as soon as the October 7 voter registration deadline passes, but you can check your location now using this BOE link: https://boe.hamilton-co.org/voting-on-election-day/where-do-i-vote.aspx
Another way you can confirm your voting precinct is by looking at this overview map for Sycamore Township:

I’m Tom James, and I’m running to be your next Sycamore Township Trustee.
We live in a fantastic community that is the crown jewel of Greater Cincinnati. Throughout Sycamore Township, we’re blessed with great neighborhoods, school districts which the rest of our nation envies, and vibrant shopping, restaurant, and commercial areas. This has been a great place for my wife and I to raise our 4 kids, and it’s also a great place to work. My office is in Kenwood, not far from home, and so is hers.
I’m running for Trustee because I want to help
our neighborhoods continue to be safe, pleasant places where we can all enjoy
the benefits of our community, and I want to ensure that our businesses
continue to thrive and grow. Doing that that requires maintaining clear lines
and buffers between our commercial and residential areas, and having open, in-the-sunshine discussions and dealings
whenever there’s any reason to consider development proposals which might
encroach upon our neighborhoods or which might interfere with our residents’
quiet enjoyment of their homes within them.
By election time my opponent will have been in
office for almost nine years – more than 2 full terms of office. It’s time for a change, because he’s
demonstrated several times lately that we can no longer trust his judgment.
As a willing participant in backroom development deals, and as a cheerleader
for building and having taxpayers subsidize mammoth multi-story commercial
building projects and apartment complexes next to some of our once-quiet
neighborhoods, he’s shown he can’t keep the promises which he personally made
to our residents. (More information about that to follow in the near
Seeing the incumbent trustee’s breaches of our
trust, and seeing the stay-out-of-our-way
attitude that he and some other key members of our Township government
demonstrate, is what inspired me to run for Trustee to replace him. I want to change that culture. Your Township government works for the voters
– not the other way around.
Please vote for me this November 5. When you make me your next Sycamore Township
Trustee, we can restore trustworthiness in our local government and ensure that
our neighborhoods have a strong voice to advocate for their interests. I’d
really appreciate your vote. Thanks.
