Madeira City Council issues “Community Statement on Racial Equity Initiative”  Mayor Spencer Quote, “Monday night , my fellow council members joined me affirming commitment to develop a Community Action Plan creating a framework to better hear, understand, and act on ways our community can promote racial equity and equal justice”  “Quite simply Black Lives Matter”

June 14, 2020 “I look forward to working with Council , City Administration, Chief Schaefer, and the Madeira Police Department, and voices from the community and beyond to shape a plan that fully supports our COMMITMENT TO RACIAL EQUITY AND THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT” This quote is from our Mayor Nancy Spencer and implies that all of the parties mentioned in the quote are in support of the BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT

The Black Lives Matter Movement began in 2013 following the acquittal of a police officer accused of murdering Trayvon Martin. The Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the United States, UK, and Canada. Their mission is to eradicate white supremacy, and intervene in violence inflicted on black communities by the state and vigilantes. 

No one can dispute that every Black Life matters, but the “Black Lives Matter Movement” is a radical, Marxist organization. and has no place in Madeira.

Madeira City Council members aligning City of Madeira  with radical, Marxist, Black Lives Matter Movement, WHY?

August 20, 2020, Letter submitted at left explains why a Madeira resident would at his expense have 100 signs made showing his appreciation for the work of our Madeira Police Officers. A second Madeira family had an additional 100 signs made and began distribution on August 20, 2020. 

An Opinion


March 13, 2022



March 13, 2022, The Madeira Inclusion Committee either are, or are close to violating our city charter. The committee has sent out more than a few letters similar to the letter at left to city entities, the Madeira-Indian Hill Fire Department, and other Madeira city organizations. In their most recent meeting a Fire Captain was interrogated, it was implied that the department does not adhere to proper hiring practices as determined by members of the Inclusion Committee. The Inclusion Committee does not have this kind of authority, and their actions very likely are in violation of our charter “Interference by Council”. This committee is an embarrassment and in the best interest of  our community, should be dissolved. I will be posting more information supporting my opinion very soon.

It’s lurking beneath Miami Avenue…

March 18, 2022



SORTA, the Regional Transit Authority has awarded the City of Madeira a grant for Miami Avenue revitalization. The grant value is shown as “up to $3,585,391”, not to exceed 90% of project cost. There are important issues lurking beneath Miami Avenue that will need to be addressed prior to committing the SORTA funds for Miami revitalization, including the replacement of a 100 year old, 16 inch water main and the large diameter storm water pipe that runs under Euclid, under the city building parking lot, underneath Miami Ave, underneath Laurel Avenue, underneath Railroad Avenue, before draining into Sycamore Creek

This drainage pipe has been indirectly or directly responsible for severe flooding in many neighborhoods including homes located on Mar Del Drive and Miami Hills Drive. Damage in dollars has been in the hundreds of thousands. The procedure for the Miami Avenue project should be the same procedure that has been applied to Buckeye Crescent, Greenbriar, Mapleleaf Drive, and Thomas Drive, replace the 100 year old 16 inch water main and replace the drainage pipe, assuring Madeira residents that once and for all the flooding issues will be resolved, before reshaping the surface above Miami Avenue. City Council surely will follow the same procedures followed on all other Madeira streets before repaving the surface. The water main “lurking beneath Miami Avenue” was installed by the Cincinnati Water Works Company 100 years ago and is overdue for replacement. It has lasted this long because it is made out of cast iron. but is at the end of its expected life. If Madeira would choose to not replace the pipes beneath Miami Avenue, there would potentially be issues with the grant funds, and the use of the funds. The SORTA grant comes from a sales tax levied in Hamilton County thus the city of Madeira and SORTA are accountable to every person making purchases in Hamilton County and to those that supported and voted for the SORTA tax.
