IT'S TIME TO VOTE FOR AN INDIVIDUAL WITH
EXPERIENCE AND A PASSION FOR CINCINNATI.
For nearly half a century, Jim Tarbell has been a ubiquitous presence in the Queen City in political campaigns, celebrations, cultural events, and every other aspect of civic life. Calling him a civic booster does not even begin to describe his contributions. He is a politician, neighborhood preservationist, historian, concert promoter, idealist, activist, provocateur, thorn and visionary. Has anyone ever loved Cincinnati more passionately?
Jim's community involvement started at 11 years old organizing a “polio carnival” fundraiser; at 15 suggesting to local officials to open a teen center instead of complaining about kids hanging out on the street; as a young adult realizing new life for old buildings in downtown Cincinnati; then restaurant revivals, a rock 'n roll music venue (think Allman Brothers), architectural preservation, and the list goes on.
Jim has long been a respected citizen of Cincinnati as a council member for nine years and through his many local accomplishments.
Jim Tarbell is back and wants
to pick up where he left off: fulfilling Cincinnati’s potential starting with City Hall.
