"A recent transplant’s view of Cincinnati" is relevant to us, too.

If the Gahan administration really comprehended what millennials want, would the flunkies be allowed to use the words "millennial" and "luxury" in the same sentence?

Of course not. It's what you get from the suburbs, looking in, uncomprehending.

How do we foster a culture designed to retain our best and brightest, to support localism in business, and take care of our own by exceeding the lowest conceivable political denominator?

Looking in the mirror.
Asking questions.
Making lists.
Involving people.

Then again, I'm hardly a serious commentator, am I?

A recent transplant’s view of Cincinnati, by Fatima Hussein (Cincinnati Enquirer)

 ... I found out last week that a large portion of young people living here, both home bred and transplants, are itching to move to bigger cities throughout the country.

In Cincinnati, the youth exodus phenomenon is a huge issue for business leaders. Leaders such as Mary Stagaman worry that if nothing is done to attract and retain young talent, we can’t expect to have a vibrant economy, and the corporations that have long called Cincinnati home will have less incentive to stay ...

 ... And it doesn’t help that for every study that says Cincinnati is up-and-coming or an affordable place for families, there are others that say Ohio and Kentucky are some of the unhappiest places in the country – or that Cincinnati is one of the most unwelcoming cities on earth.
