Meet Greg Landsman
A former public school teacher, Greg Landsman is a staunch advocate for Southwest Ohio families. Greg has spent his career fighting for working families, having successfully led the Preschool Promise which now provides two years of quality preschool for Cincinnati’s three and four year olds. In his fifth year as a Cincinnati Councilman, he is now running for Congress to make government work for us by lowering costs, repairing our roads and bridges, and making it easier to raise a family.
Born and raised in Greater Cincinnati, Greg attended public schools before going to Ohio University to study Economics and Political Science. After college, Greg worked as a public high school teacher. In the aftermath of 9/11, Greg was inspired to study faith and religion. He earned a Master’s Degree in Theology from Harvard and later went on to serve as Governor Strickland’s Director of Faith Based and Community Initiatives, where he led Ohio’s efforts to help churches and synagogues provide education and food programs.
After working for Governor Strickland, Greg helped run Cincinnati’s nationally-renowned National Underground Railroad Freedom Center before working in education advocacy as Executive Director of the StrivePartnership.
In 2017, Greg was elected to Cincinnati City Council. On City Council, Greg has proven to be a strong voice for children and families across the region on issues of housing, jobs, environmental issues, and public safety. Greg helped shepherd the largest investment in repairing roads and bridges ever in Hamilton County. Greg believes that our elected officials must work for us, not wealthy donors or party bosses. That’s why he established Cincinnati City Hall’s first ever Office of Ethics and Good Government and the Balanced Development Scorecard – to support ethics compliance, hold officials accountable and increase transparency. Greg knows that Washington needs fewer people who create chaos, and more leaders who know how to get real results.
Greg and his wife, Sarah, live in Mt. Washington with their two children, Maddie and Elijah.
