A Cincinnati Council Member will be at the White House Wednesday afternoon to accept an award.
Chris Seelbach is one of ten people being recognized this year as "Harvey Milk Champions of Change."
“The award honors elected officials who champion equality and public service,” Seelbach said. “And so I’m being honored for my attempts to make Cincinnati a place that more people feel welcome and respected.”
President Obama honored the late Harvey Milk in 2009 with America's highest civilian medal, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
If convicted, a Colerain Township man faces up to six years in prison for a series of incidents at the Flying Pig Marathon and related events. The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office has indicted 49 year old David Moore, a registered marathon participant on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and menacing by stalking.
State Rep. Connie Pillich, a Democrat from Montgomery, announced this morning she will take on Republican incumbent Josh Mandel for the Ohio treasurer's office in 2014.
Pillich, who represents the 28th Ohio House District in northern Hamilton County, won re-election last year after Republicans in the Ohio General Assembly had re-drawn her district to make it considerably more Republican.
She is a third term state representative, a retired captain in the U.S. Air Force, and a lawyer.
