Meet The Staff
Jon J. Harmon
Having moved to Cincinnati to attend the University of Cincinnati, Jon J. Harmon transitioned from a career in non-profit arts management to politics and government when he was asked to manage the long-shot city council campaign of first-time candidate Chris Seelbach.
After managing a successful campaign, Jon was fortunate enough to join Councilmember Seelbach at City Hall as Legislative Director in December of 2011.
Originally from Orange County, California, Jon quickly fell in love with Cincinnati; it’s history, uniqueness and charm.
Hoping to continue Cincinnati’s revival, Jon’s interests lie in reviving the pedestrian character of our neighborhoods that led to our great business districts, growing local businesses, especially family-owned shops, and finding ways that promote more environmentally friendly living in Cincinnati.
