Early in his career, Jeff took on the task of making his hometown a better place to live, work, and raise a family. Jeff helped form a coalition of Democrats, Republicans, Charterites, members of the NAACP, and many other concerned citizens dedicated to reforming city government. After gathering input from across the city, Jeff helped lead the coalition to pass the reform that allowed city voters to directly elect their mayor.
Jeff has pledged to work with citizens to put the reforms on the ballot in early 2006, to give Cincinnatians a chance to choose to improve their city government.
Jeff has a long record of public service, taking on roles where he focused on getting government to work as an active partner in building stronger communities. Jeff worked for former United States Senator John Glenn, former Ohio Attorney General Anthony Celebrezze, and former Congressman David Mann. Also, Jeff led a successful national legislative campaign to protect funding for higher education.
