by Tim Butler,
We are all proud of our hometown of Loveland, Ohio. We have a dynamic downtown right on the Little Miami River, the bustling Loveland Bike Path, the gateway Nisbet Park, and a rich architectural history. We have energized neighborhoods with engaged citizens of many professions and skills. We have high-quality public and private schools and dedicated teachers and administrators. All these things and much more make Loveland a great place to live and work.
Loveland deserves a City Council which reflects the greatness of our community. We deserve elected leaders who enhance our City’s reputation, adhere to the City Charter, and perform the business of the people in the light of day, not the dark of night. We can do better. We must do better.
I’m asking for your vote for Loveland City Council. My commitment is to encourage and seek out community participation in Council decisions and to bring transparency and unity to our local government. I will work with our City government to manage the City’s fiscal affairs responsibly, and to continue the development of downtown and other Loveland neighborhoods while preserving our City’s historic heritage. The most viable way to attract development in this competitive environment is when potential businesses know they are dealing with a functional, honest, and reasonable City Council. I will encourage and enhance relationships between City Council, our business community, and Loveland schools.

Most important, I pledge to bring reasonable, rational discussion and open, honest debate to our governing process and to provide a full opportunity for community dialogue and participation.
I’m a practicing litigation and employment law attorney and 28-year resident of Pheasant Hills. My wife and I raised five children in this community. I’ve served on City Council committees and serve as a lector and in various committees at St. Margaret of York. I consider public service in elected office the highest honor my fellow citizens can bestow. If elected, I will treat my position as a Council member as a public service, not as an opportunity for self-promotion or petty politics.
Walking the neighborhoods of Loveland these past few months, I’ve met hundreds of citizens and discussed your interests and concerns. Our citizens are interested, knowledgeable, engaged, and excited about this election and the issues and challenges facing our City. We have a unique opportunity to meet the needs of the City of Loveland today and to imagine and plan the Loveland of tomorrow for ourselves and our children.
I request your vote and invite you to join me in providing an open, responsive, and positive City Council to the citizens of Loveland. You deserve it.
