Council-member David Mann Participated in the First Ceremony of the COVID-19 Memorial Day…
Flanked by 227 American flags, each representing a life lost in Cincinnati from COVID-19 in the last 10 months, Council-member David Mann participated in the first ceremony of COVID-19 Memorial Day following the resolution he proposed last week to make the first Monday of March, a day of remembrance for the lost lives, but also a day of gratitude for the essential part our City employees have played in keeping some normalcy for our citizens.
Joining Councilmember Mann were Mayor John Cranley and Councilmembers Kearney and Keating. The Administration side of the City was led by Assistant City Manager, John Juech, Health Commissioner Melba Moore, Fire Chief Winston, Public Services Director Wilkerson and Recreation Director Daniel Betts. All these departments have played a unique and profound role in the City COVID response.

David Mann for Cincinnati Mayor
I have served this community as councilman, mayor, member of congress and, most recently, as vice mayor and chair of the budget and finance committee. In this most challenging time of unrest and the coronavirus, experience and wisdom count more than ever before. Humbly, I believe that my years of public service have prepared me to be mayor in this particularly challenging moment. I ask for your help on this journey.
