​New Cincinnati NAACP president: Alliance with COAST is over
"Under Smitherman, the NAACP and COAST frequently teamed up on ballot issues, including opposition to a sales tax to build a new jail and a city charter amendment to bar the city from selling Cincinnati WaterWorks without voter approval. It’s unlikely the NAACP will pursue such ballot issues in the future, Richardson said."

Somewhere Over the Rhine: Streetcars "Under Fire"
"The Cincinnati Enquirer ran two articles yesterday and today highlighting a new drive against the Streetcar System by the NAACP, Citizens Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes (COAST), WeDemandAVote and others. I’m not sure why the Enquirer felt it necessary to run two articles about this on two separate days, but it makes you wonder who they are looking out for."

Stay Classy, Smitherman
"If the national office of the NAACP had any idea what Chris Smitherman is doing to their brand here in Cincinnati, they would’ve shown him the door years ago."
