Greg Landsman is a Cincinnati native dedicated to advancing sustainability and environmental justice, creating and retaining good-paying jobs, and ensuring equitable access to education and housing.
Landsman is a former public school teacher and nonprofit leader in Cincinnati. He served as the executive director of Strive Partnership, an education advocacy organization, and founded the 767 Group to help provide education advocacy support to communities. Since 2018, he has served on the Cincinnati City Council, supporting efforts to get the city to 100% clean energy by 2035. Landsman led the passage of new balanced development reforms, incentivizing not only environmentally sustainable projects, but also those that create and retain local jobs with living wages, include local minority-owned businesses, and build or preserve affordable housing. He also put forward a set of policy proposals centered on equity, livability, and growth for the city, including proposed updates and funding for the city’s environmental justice ordinance.
As a representative, Landsman will champion action on climate change and a clean energy future, working to bring quality jobs to Ohio and benefit families and communities across the state.
Landsman joins the U.S. House after defeating Representative Steve Chabot, who earned a 12% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In his own words:
“In Congress, I will work to improve the lives of children and families across our region. That means making sure we all have the opportunity to live in a safe and healthy world with opportunities for good-paying jobs of the future.”
