Anti-tax group files suit over Cincy mayor's car



Published: Tue, May 17, 2011 @ 10:05 a.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory’s lawsuit against the city now isn’t the only suit filed over the mayor’s $500-a-month car allowance.

The attorney for two members of an anti-tax group called COAST says they’ve brought their own lawsuit to protect the interests of taxpayers.

Mallory sued Cincinnati earlier this month to determine whether he’s allowed to collect the car money. COAST has alleged the payments are not legal because they’re not mentioned in the city charter.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the city used to have a limousine and driver for the mayor before introducing the car allowance in 1984.

The newspaper reports Mallory has collected about $30,000 from the allowance since 2005. His attorney says if Mallory ever has to pay that back he’d suffer “irreparable injury.”

A $500 a month car allowance for a mayor?

What? The guy is too poor to pay his own transportation costs, even locally?

Maybe the curbing of "perks" needs to take in all kinds of elected/appointed officials.

Those "Perks" come out of TAXES.

Time for all these public employees to start paying attention. Quit being geedy if you dont like the job, quit. There are thousands of people waiting to fill your shoes. This mayor should be voted out next time around if not recalled right now. The taxpayers are broke and angry. SB5 was needed and next they should look at how the Ohio state patrol gets to retire at 20yrs in their 40's

Well at least they didn't lease a Bentley for him . . ..

Leading the City through one of the most difficult economic periods, Mayor Mallory has balanced the City budget while avoiding layoffs to police officers and firefighters or significant reductions in City services.
