Meet The Staff

Tamaya Dennard

Director of Community Affairs

Tamaya Dennard was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Growing up in College Hill, she is a proud graduate of Cincinnati Public Schools -- Aiken High School to be exact. Of all of the places she has been to in the world, Cincinnati is by far her favorite.

Service has always been a passion and so she saw going into government as another way to make a difference and positively impact the city that has given her so much. With a degree in International Business from the University of Cincinnati Lindner College of Business, Tamaya understands that our city can only be great when everyone has a seat at the table.

Tamaya is a resident of East Walnut Hills.

Elida Kamine

Director of Policy and Communication

Elida Kamine is Councilmember Sittenfeld’s Director of Policy and Communication.

Elida is a Cincinnati native who returned to Cincinnati after over 10 years away, drawn back by the vibrancy, livability and momentum of our city.

Prior to joining Councilmember Sittenfeld's staff, Elida practiced law in New York and Cincinnati. Politics runs in her family, and she is excited for the opportunity to work to help shape the future of Cincinnati.
