David Mann was elected in November 2013 to serve on Cincinnati City Council. Mayor Cranley appointed him as Vice-Mayor of Cincinnati. David previously served on council for 18 years, including three distinguished years as mayor.

David was elected to the 103rd Congress as the representative from Ohio’s 1st Congressional District, which then included most of the city of Cincinnati.

David’s earliest public service was serving in the United States Navy for four years. As a lieutenant, David served on the USS. English (DD-696), a destroyer that was one of the first ships to reach Cuban waters during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Prior to active duty in the Navy, David attended Harvard College on a Navy ROTC scholarship and was selected as the midshipman commander of the Naval ROTC battalion at Harvard. David graduated cum laude with a major in biochemical sciences.

After his Navy service, David attended Harvard Law School where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review and graduated magna cum laude.

Currently, David practices law with his son, Michael, in the firm of Mann & Mann.

David’s practice includes civil rights and discrimination cases on behalf of employees who have been treated improperly because of race, gender, age or disability. He also has worked to increase employment opportunities for ex-offenders. David also provides counsel to small businesses. He drafts wills and contracts and probates estates.

David’s role as a civic leader has included involvement in a number of charitable organizations: For two years he was chairman of the board of The Hearing, Speech and Deaf Center of Greater Cincinnati; he spent 10 years on the board of the Freestore Foodbank and served as chairman of the board of his church, Clifton United Methodist.

David also served as the co-convener (aka co-chairman) of Beyond Civility, a new initiative to improve public discourse on civic issues. Public response has been tremendous.

In October, David and Betsy celebrated 51 years of marriage. Over the years, their family has expanded to include five grandchildren — Kiersten, Lyla, Jaron, Mia, and David — all of whom live in Cincinnati and have attended Cincinnati Public Schools.

For David, the role of a lawyer is to provide guidance through difficult and challenging times and to make good times better.

Cincinnati is a City that prides itself on our cultural diversity and spirit of inclusion, and our rejection of discrimination on the basis of race, gender or sexual identity, religion, or sexual orientation. Bigotry is not welcome here.

That’s why I am introducing this resolution to today’s Council meeting to condemn in the strongest terms Richard Spencer’s message of hate.

Great hair cuts, substantial issues, adorable kids, and my lovely wife, Betsy- what else can you ask for in a commercial?

"David Mann's upcoming spot is PX's early favorite for Local Ad of the Year. The Vice Mayor's locally famous poofy, white hair is the star of this 30-second show (and so are the kids and his wife, Betsy Mann). "He's my man," Betsy says. And Mann's a man and mane local TV viewers will be seeing a lot."-Jason Williams, The Enquirer's Political Extra
