Michelle Dillingham, a former aide to the late city councilman David Crowley, announced Friday she will be a candidate for Cincinnati City Council in 2013.
Dillingham, who is from Kennedy Heights, will seek the Democratic Party's endorsement in the council race.
She is currently working for a regional labor-management fund "to tackle industry issues of mutual interest" to business and labor, "such as transportation funding, family-supporting wages and workforce development," according to her campaign website, www.michelledillingham.com.
Cincinnati Council is expected to vote Wednesday to approve the city’s first comprehensive plan in more than 30 years.
The Livable Communities Committee approved the proposal Monday night.
The document has been in the works for more than 3 years and focuses on what the city will look like in the future. Specifically it has strategies that for the first time focus on economic development activities in the neighborhoods.
Planning and Buildings Director Charles Graves described the plan this way.
