Jeff Cramerding built his career as a labor lawyer. He is currently the Director of Contract Administration for the American Association of University Professors at the University Cincinnati (AAUP-UC). He assists over 1,600 faculty at UC, making it one of the largest faculty unions in the county.
Jeff has been very active in Price Hill and is a long time advocate of supporting mixed-income neighborhoods in Cincinnati as the affordable housing crisis becomes more prevalent. He was a founding board member of Price Hill Will, a community development corporation, and has been a member and an officer with the West Price Hill Community Council for over twenty years. Jeff’s community activism led to other civic and political involvement. He was a legislative aide to Councilmember Todd Portune and has been involved in numerous candidate and issue campaigns. Jeff has also served as a volunteer and board member with the Multi- Neighborhood Housing Task Force, Kids Voting of Southwest Ohio, the United Way, the CCAT house (Center for Chemical and Alcohol Treatment), and the Parks Foundation.
Our country and our city face difficult times that require difficult decisions. As a proven advocate, Jeff is running to bring strong leadership to city council in order to tackle our cities toughest issues. He understands that in order to move Cincinnati forward and restore the pride in the city government, city council should be a civic duty. It should not be a stepping stone to higher office.
