2017 Timeline

Year in Review by Topic: 2017 Timeline

It’s been a tough political year for Loveland, Ohio; yet, residents have stood up to overcome corruption. And we have persevered. On request, here is a 2016 – 2017 timeline of the political challenges Loveland residents faced in 2017. Note: This timeline does not include every available media story; however, it’s a great place to start getting informed. Loveland Community Heartbeat encourages residents to come to City Council meetings and to get engaged. If you can’t, we hope this will help get you up to speed.

Pre 2017 (Loveland v. Chamber of Commerce)
January – March (Outrageous Fee Ordinance)

Residents and event organizers fought Pam Gross and the majority on an outrageous fee ordinance that would have pushed out special events and the Loveland Farmer’s Market. Rob Weisgerber, Ted Phelps, and Kathy Bailey worked with residents to remove prohibitive fees from the final ordinance. Click to review the gallery timeline.

March – July (Abuse of Power)

Residents endured intimidation, insults, and abuse of power by Mark Fitzgerald, while his majority Angie Settell, Pam Gross, and Steve Zamagias said and did nothing to stop him. Click to review the gallery timeline.

April – August (The Recall of Mark Fitzgerald)

Residents petitioned for the recall of our mayor, TWICE, which resulted in his resignation from elected office. Click to review the gallery timeline.

August Onward

And now, residents must remove those who propped up the reign of Mark Fitzgerald, by replacing his remaining majority (Angie Settell, Pam Gross, and Steve Zamagias) with candidates who will work FOR US, Loveland. Two of Mark Fitzgerald’s remaining majority are up for re-election, Pam Gross and Steve Zamagias, and we need them off of City Council to ensure these problems are behind us, Loveland.

Meet our Candidates.
