When voters go to the polls on Nov. 8,
they will be faced with making a bevy of wide-ranging decisions that
will directly and indirectly impact their lives in the months and years
ahead. They range from whether Ohioans will be
subject to the provisions of federal health-care reforms passed by
Congress in late 2009 to whether police and firefighter unions may
negotiate for staffing levels to whether Cincinnati should develop any
passenger rail projects during the next decade.
