Cleveland, OH – October 1, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — The Cleveland Area Board of Realtors (CABOR) announced its support for Issue 6 on the November 3rd ballot. The Board of Directors for the 4,500 member non-profit organization voted on Thursday, September 24, 2009 to endorse the reform effort.
According to CABOR, the new Charter of Cuyahoga County is essential for bringing the collaborative leadership and accountability to county government needed for area jobs, growth and economic development.
“At CABOR we are dedicated to identifying and monitoring proposed legislation and regulatory changes and the impact it will have on our regional economy and real estate community, and we recommend a vote of ‘Yes’ for ballot question 6 for several reasons,” explained Jim Nemastil, CABOR Director and Government Affairs Committee Chair. “The new Charter will permit a separation between legislative or policy-making powers from executive or administrative powers that will preclude the overreaching abilities of a single county leader. For CABOR, this improved level of oversight means fairness in the area of commercial property appraisals.”
Additional advantages for CABOR and the local economy, include:
- Effective, accountable and focused leadership
- An improved focus equity for all of our communities and citizens
- Significant taxpayer savings by streamlining positions and eliminating duplication of efforts
- Collaborative leadership with Cleveland and the suburbs
- Attraction of new businesses and jobs from improved development
