Now that we're in 2016 and you've made YOUR New Year's resolutions, we would like share with you some of the FOX19 NOW Wish List for Cincinnati. Here are the first seven of our top 15:
1. We hope Eliot Isaac, Cincinnati's new Police Chief can find support from his officers and the Community and find solutionsto the violence that plagued us in 2015.
2. We wish that our service personnel, our police and firefighters, stay safe and productive this year.
3. We wish that the city would seriously address the heroin epidemic. It's causing too much crime and tragic deaths.
4. Get a handle on terrorism...whatever face it may wear. And, that all people involved in the terrorist watch stay diligent.
5.Protect our children. There's too much poverty. We need to find solutions...not excuses or finger pointing.
6. We wish the 2016 elections could bring us closer together and not miles apart.
7.We wish we no longer had to "Think Pink" and there was a cure for breast cancer..
8. We wish for the return to prosperity for more neighborhoods like Price Hill--especially beyond downtown and Over-The-Rhine.
9. That our economy continue to grow and get healthier. And, that our local businesses expand and add employees.
10. We wish the construction along I-75 would END. It's gone on far too long!
11. We hope the new street car project gets completed this year--on budget, on time and is worth the wait.
12. We wish that the Reds trading away all of the big names benefits the team in its rebuilding year.
13. Wishing that Cincinnati and the Tri-State supports our new franchise: FC Cincinnati and pro soccer.
14. Hoping 2016 will be the year of the Bengals—that we make it back—and win the Super Bowl
15. Our wish is that people be more civil and courteous to each other. Wouldn't it be better if we were all just "nicer?"
Later this week, you'll see the second half of our 15 wishes. We're hoping that you will share your wishes for 2016. Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you think!
