Merry Christmas!
Posted by on December 24, 2015
Since it's Christmas Eve, I thought I'd share a few photos from Christmases past.  First, a picture from 60 years ago, Christmas 1955, when I was 2 years old.  Since we lived in a trailer, our tree had to be pretty small.


Christmas 1973.  Donna and I were married in June, so this was our first Christmas together.


Christmas 1974.  Our dog Muffet liked the beard a lot better than Donna did!


Christmas 1979.  Donna and I are on the left, my sister Carol is in green.  My mom is in white, my brother Ron is in the back, and my brother Dave is in the front.


Christmas 1986.  Fellow Cincinnati City Councilmember Ken Blackwell and I bringing Christmas cheer to kids at the Price Hill community center.


Christmas 1989.  From left to right.  Back row, my dad, me, my sister's husband Joe, and their son Joey.  Middle row, Dave's wife Ellen, my mom, our daughter Erica, Ron's wife Nancy, Donna's mom Hilda, Ron's daughter Laura, our son Randy in the Santa outfit, and Donna.  Front row, my brother Dave, my brother Ron, and Ron's daughter Maria.


From our family to your family, Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!

Recent Meeting Roundup
Posted by on November 24, 2015
I've had several interesting meetings over the last week or so, and I thought I'd share some of the highlights.

Last week, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley was in DC, and we had an opportunity to get together to discuss several sewer issues facing the City of Cincinnati.


Also, last week, I held a hearing in the House Small Business Committee to celebrate the contribution of entrepreneurs to America's economy on National Entrepreneurs' Day.  Cincinnatian Chris Ostoich, Co-Founder & VP of Marketing of LISNR, Inc., testified at the hearing about the vibrant entrepreneur environment here in Southwest Ohio.


And this week, I met with Interim Police Chief Eliot Isaac, Assistant Police Chief Dave Bailey and Captain Doug Wiesman.  During the meeting, we discussed a wide range of issues facing the Cincinnati Police Department, from equipment and technology needs to problems they're experiencing with certain public housing developments.
