County Commissioner Todd Portune’s Living Legacy – We are committed to addressing any racism by the county government.

On the historic Juneteenth 2019 this happened …. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of County Commissioners of Hamilton County Ohio does hereby today and everyday, recommit ourselves to defending the self-evident truth, boldly declared by our Founding Fathers, that all people are created equal. We as leadership of the county recognize that although we may be created equal that Americans of African heritage have faced a flawed citizenship since it was granted in 1868 with institutionalized and systematic racism by government and the private sector.  We are committed to addressing any legacy institutionalized and systematic racism by the county government.
