Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld is the guest speaker for our January Exchange. He will be discussing topics like the 'Green Light Initiative- which was created to help small businesses launch faster and smarter. He will also touch on his work identifying institutional racism and racial disparities within the city.
For his work at City Hall, P.G. was twice invited to the Obama White House, once for leading efforts around reducing gun violence and another time for leading Cincinnati's work to prevent sexual assaults. P.G.'s Golden Cincinnati Initiative expanded support for older Cincinnatians and for those with disabilities, and earned P.G. the Robert Primm Award for Outstanding Senior Advocate from Cincinnati Area Senior Services. P.G. is City Hall's lead evangelist for the city's Innovation Ecosystem and startup community, building on existing strengths in the local economy while ensuring the city stays competitive for the future. His program for stabilizing foreclosed properties has helped residents stay in their homes and saved millions of dollars in property values. And P.G. has stood steadfast in the fight for greater equality, by supporting LGBT rights and pushing back against voter suppression.
