Loveland, Ohio – On Wednesday, October 16, Loveland Magazine and the Little Miami River Chamber Chamber Alliance co-hosted a Meet the Candidates Night for those running for Loveland City Council in the November 5 election. The event was held in the Media Center of the Loveland Middle School.

Loveland Magazine broadcast the forum live on our Facebook page and this is our re-broadcast.

Our moderator for the forum was Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Brad Greenberg, and Pastor Bill Hounshell sorted and asked the written questions that were submitted by the audience.

Candidates Kathy Bailey, Andy Bateman, Kent Blair, Cory O’Donnell, and Angela Settell participated. Pat Ahr was unable to attend due to a previous engagement.


Thank you to John Ames the Loveland School Business Manager for the hours you spent on the details of room logistics and the sound system. Thank you, Pastor Bill Hounshell, for perhaps the hardest job of the evening – sorting through the many audience submitted questions and fairly and impartially asking them to the candidates. Thank you, Judge Greenberg, for adding your dignity to the forum and for keeping things running so smoothly. Thank you Loveland Voters for attending and your community engagement. Thank you, Chamber – CeeCee Collins and Meredith Taylor – for the important roles you played in making the evening a success and allowing us to partner with you again this year. David Miller, Publisher
