Greg Landsman is one of the most experienced City Council challengers. Under former Gov. Ted Strickland, Landsman worked as director of the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives and as chair of the Ohio Anti-Poverty Task Force.
That experience helps explain why Landsman holds a clear, proven perspective of what’s required to move Cincinnati forward. A conversation with him provides intelligent insight into the city’s biggest problems.
His aspirations go beyond the streetcar and parking plan; he also means to genuinely provide economic opportunities to the city’s poorest and neediest — and hopefully lift them out of income inequality, homelessness and poverty that has endured in Cincinnati for far too long.
