Cincinnati’s newest Congressman Greg Landsman was recently sworn into office as U.S. Representative for Ohio Congressional District 1, following his election in November.
“It was very important for me to take the oath in front of my family and community because you will hold me accountable to it,” Landsman, a Democrat, said following the ceremony in Black’s courtroom at the Hamilton County Courthouse.
“Thank you, Judge (Timothy) Black, for swearing me in and Bishop Michael E. Dantley (the Senior Pastor of Christ Emmanuel Christian Fellowship in the Walnut Hills) for leading the invocation.’’
“I’m here to be transparent, bipartisan, and reliable. Let’s go!,” he added.
A former public-school teacher and education non-profit leader, Greg Landsman was in his fifth year on the Cincinnati City Council when he defeated long-time Congressman Steve Chabot, of Westwood, to win a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
