CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - One of Mayor John Cranley's staff members was mentioned on Forbes Magazine's 30 under 30 list for 2015.

Daniel Rajaiah, 23, is the director of external affairs for the office of the mayor and is heading up the Mayor's Task Force on Immigration. 

Forbes' 2015 list was focused on 600 millenials in 20 fields including art & style, venture capital, consumer tech, music, etc.

Rajaiah was mentioned in the law policy category

"Daniel is leading the Mayor's Task Force on immigration and has been appointed by the Mayor and City Council to serve on the City of Cincinnati Charter Review Task Force -- a group of 24 individuals rewriting Cincinnati's constitution for the first time in 25 years," reads the article. "In college, he led the College Democrats of Ohio, registering 43,000 students to vote and helping secure Ohio for the Obama campaign."
