Former Cincinnati City Council member and newly installed member of Congress Greg Landsman has announced a series of local in-person town halls.

After a congressional circus delayed Greg Landsman's induction into U.S. Congress, the former Cincinnati City Council member is looking to connect with constituents back home.

Landsman recently announced a series of in-person town halls across Ohio’s First Congressional District in which residents are invited ask the congressman questions or share their thoughts and concerns. There are three scheduled town halls:
  • Evanston Recreation Center, 3204 Woodburn Ave, Cincinnati
    Saturday, Jan. 21, noon - 1 p.m.

  • Madeira Branch Library, 7200 Miami Ave, Cincinnati
    Saturday, Feb. 4, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

  • Warren County Historical Society, 105 S. Broadway St, Lebanon
    Saturday, Feb. 11, noon - 1 p.m,
In a December interview with CityBeat, Landsman said his office has transitioned from campaign mode to collaboration mode with Republican predecessor Steve Chabot's office.

“Those constituents who have case work pending want a smooth handoff,” Landsman told CityBeat. “A larger lesson I’ve learned along the way is if you can get people to do the work together, some of the things that are awkward or may have caused issues in the past don’t go away, but they become less important.”


“Our office is up and running, and we are ready to assist if you need help with Social Security, Medicare, VA benefits, or any other federal agency or issue.” Landsman said in a press release.

In addition to picking up where Chabot left off, Landsman said in a Tweet that he's started legislative work on insulin costs, renewing the Child Tax Credit and increasing public safety grants for first responders.

During his campaign, Landsman highlighted restoring abortion rights, repairing infrastructure like the Brent Spence Bridge and passing LGBTQIA+ protections as his priorities in Congress. His time on the council largely has focused on general safety, violence reduction, reproductive rights and neighborhood beautification, among other issues.
