Hello friends! I am running for my last term on Cincinnati City Council, and I thank you for your support.
I Chair Council’s Strategic Growth Committee, which oversees economic development, arts & culture, education, the environment, human services, and marketing & tourism. I also serve on the Hamilton County Transportation Improvement District and Chair the Mayor's Green Steering Committee. Citizens involved in Green Umbrella are helping us update the Green Cincinnati Plan that will set our sustainability goals for the next five years.
Making Cincinniati "Cleaner, Greener & Smarter" is my mission, and a top priority for me is creating the Wasson Way Bike Trail, which will be transformative for our city.
I focus on helping neighborhoods, creating vibrancy, and streamlining government. My leadership created:
On a personal note, I am married to Cincinnati native Greg Ruthman who teaches art at St. Joseph School in the West End and works in sales at Verdin Company. We have an 18 year old daughter headed to UC this fall. Our 5 year old son attends Kilgour. Our lovable new addition is a Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue puppy named Forrest Gump.
