GOP Endorses Council Slate

Mar 4, 2011 at 4:10 pm

The Hamilton County Republican Party endorsed five people Thursday night in this November's elections for Cincinnati City Council.

As expected, the GOP slate includes all three of the party's incumbents: Leslie Ghiz, Charlie Winburn and recent appointee Amy Murray. Also getting the nod were Wayne Lippert and Catherine Smith Mills.—-

Lippert is a financial planner who lives in Hyde Park. Also, he worked as an aide to then-U.S. Congressman Rob Portman from 1993-97, first as a caseworker and later as a legislative aide.

Mills is a Mount Lookout resident who co-chairs the Hamilton County Republican Party's Leadership Council, a young professional networking organization. She's also worked in the Congressional offices of Portman and Jean Schmidt.
