Columbus City Mayor Andrew Ginther will present the 2020 State of the City Address on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at the West High School, 179 S. Powell Avenue, Columbus, Ohio beginning from 6pm. Doors will be opened at 5pm.
Mayor Ginther, who was reelected for a second term last November is expected to review the past State of the City addresses and present new and expanded plans for Columbus.
At the 2019 State of the City, Mayor Ginther said, “when you envision our city in the next 10 years, 20 years, 50 years? What do you see?
“I see an affordable city with dynamic, inclusive growth, mixed income neighborhoods that support family stability and mobility that provides equity and improves the quality of life for all of our residents.”
In his conclusion, Mayor Ginther asked Columbus “to join me and to commit to helping advance change and help shape the future of Columbus.
“I ask you to define the role you will play to help promote dynamic and inclusive growth, to help strengthen our middle class and to build mixed income neighborhoods where all Columbus residents have the opportunity to share in our prosperity.
“In a political climate where much is expected of government, where challenges abound but our faith in elected leaders is fleeting, I ask you to stand with me to help chart our future. Government alone cannot solve the problems we face. Our programs and investments in sound ideas alone are not enough to build strong neighborhoods. We need you,” he added.
