Annual Report

Fellow Ohioans,

In 2016, we formed a new organization of mayors in Ohio’s largest cities and suburbs called the Ohio Mayors Alliance. As a bipartisan coalition, we came together to speak with one voice about the issues that impact our communities and our constituents.

As local leaders, we know the important role that cities play in creating jobs and building vibrant communities. Since coming together, we have made it our mission to tell that story and to forge stronger partnerships with state and federal policymakers.

While there is still much work to do, our efforts have made a big impact in a short period of time. We have influenced state legislation that affects our cities, engaged our congressional representatives on key issues, and offered innovative solutions to help address one of Ohio’s biggest challenges – the opioid epidemic.

We have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to come together with our colleagues and strengthen the collective voice of Ohio’s largest communities. Please take a moment to review our first annual report and the work we have accomplished together in our first year.

Sincerely,

John Cranley
Mayor, City of Cincinnati

Lydia Mihalik
Mayor, City of Findlay

Tim DeGeeter
Mayor, City of Parma

Andrew J. Ginther
Mayor, City of Columbus

Don Patterson
Mayor, City of Kettering
