Since taking office in December 2013, Cincinnati Mayor Cranley has placed a renewed focus on building vibrant, thriving neighborhoods by getting the basics right and making strategic investments to spur growth. Mayor Cranley implemented a multi-year plan to dramatically increase the miles of city roads that are paved and repaired annually, expanded the City’s efforts to crack down on absentee landlords and reduce blight, and invested in economic development deals throughout the city.
Mayor Cranley has led efforts to invest in job training, make the City more inclusive, and reduce poverty all while getting the City’s credit upgraded, wiping out the $800 million unfunded liability that the City’s pension system was facing, and adding over 100 cops to the police force.
Prior to taking office, Mayor Cranley co-founded the Ohio Innocence Project, a organization that has exonerated and freed 23 wrongfully convicted people through the use of DNA technology. He also worked as a real estate developer and attorney.
John graduated from St. William’s, St. Xavier High School. He earned degrees from John Carroll University, Harvard Law School and Harvard Divinity School.
John lives in Hyde Park with his wife Dena and their son Joseph.
