Building A Greater Cincinnati
Building a greater Cincinnati is at the core of Councilman Wendell Young’s obligations to this great city. Serving the community has been nearly a lifelong task that started when Young joined the U.S. Air Force in 1963. Since his honorable discharge in 1967, Young has been a direct asset to the community through his involvement in several community organizations; notably the Cincinnati Police Department from which he retired as a Sergeant after 25 years of service.
Councilman Young’s appointment to City Council has enabled him to work directly for the public. Young is dedicated to providing employment opportunities, making our neighborhoods clean and safer, improving the overall health of our community, and protecting city workers among several other concerns. By working with members of council and other community leaders, Councilman Young aims to make this city a greater place for all residents.
