to Greg's Campaign

“As a father of two, I see first-hand how Washington isn’t doing enough to help families in our community. We desperately need better leadership in Congress, and that’s why I’m running….
 

We can no longer be represented by someone who voted against relief checks for families, voted against rebuilding the Brent Spence Bridge, voted against funding to reopen schools and support for frontline workers, and voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election.”

Campaign Announcement, 1/6/22

 

BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE

In Ohio, he served as Director of the Governor’s Office of Faith-based and Community Initiatives (2007-2010). In this role, he also served as Chair of the Governor’s Anti—Poverty Task Force. From 2010 to 2015 Landsman served as Executive Director of STRIVE Partnership Knowledge Foundation, a nationally recognized education organizing and advocacy group.

ON THE ISSUES

Landsman has spent his career fighting for children and families, having successfully led the Preschool Promise which now provides two years of quality preschool for Cincinnati’s three- and four-year olds.

 

Landsman notes that his Republican opponent Stephen Chabot is "part of the chaos in Washington that is undermining our efforts here at home…We can no longer be represented by someone who voted against relief checks for families, voted against rebuilding the Brent Spence Bridge, voted against funding to reopen schools and support for frontline workers, and voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election.”

 

As a Cincinnati Councilman, Landsman has helped shepherd the largest investment in transportation and infrastructure ever in Hamilton County .

OHIO POLITICS

Ohio has been trending Republican despite its long reputation as a battleground state. Trump’s strong showing in 2020 and Republican control of the state’s Congressional redistricting process contribute to a difficult environment in 2022 for Democrats. Trump is very active in Ohio, endorsing most of the Republican Congressional slate as well as the Republican Candidate for U.S. Senate. However, Ohio 1 is rated Toss-Up (Cook Political Report) and has a Partisan Lean of D+2 going from a seat that backed Trump by +3 in 2020. Though he is in a challenging environment, Landsman is a very competitive candidate. His opponent, long time Rep. Steve Chabot  is bidding for a 14th term and has defeated well-funded challengers in past races.
