The answer to that question is a simple: "HELL NO"!
I am so tired of Councilwoman turned appointed "figure-head" Vice-Mayor Alicia Reece getting on black talk radio, during various Mayoral debates and in print news bemoaning the fact that she is currently the "Vice-mayor" so that [basically] "Entitles" her to the mayorship.
Now correct me if I'm wrong but The City of Cincinnati is not a "privately owned company" nor is it some sort of pass-me-down type of "family bitnezz", sort of like Intergity Hall.
So "NO" Alicia, being vice-mayor DOES NOT entitle you to become mayor.
So for Alicia to constantly moan, cry and complain about the fact that maybe just maybe somebody out there in Cincinnati-land just might
question and/or ask her to produce some "real" results for the first "5 1/2 years" she's been on council...she tries to divert the black community from her sorry voting record by whinning every chance she gets about how she's being asked to work just as hard as the other contenders for mayor, all the while projecting the image she should just be given the position of mayor.
Is this woman for real?
Let's take a little walk down memory lane shall we....
I'm sure all of you remember the first 2 years she tricked us all out of our votes. (Yes, even I was tricked in 1999) Where Ms. Reece rode right in the front doors of City Hall on the unjustifiably murdered by The Cincinnati police dead black back of Bro. Mi
