Dear Clifton Residents and Business Owners:

We are seeking candidates to run for Trustee positions for election prior to the 12/6/2021 meeting of the Clifton Town Meeting (CTM) Board.  If you think you might enjoy serving as a Trustee, please email by October 15.

CTM is Clifton’s neighborhood community council.  As such, CTM seeks to understand the interests of ALL Clifton residents and to represent those interests with the City of Cincinnati.  We are especially interested in ensuring that the Board reflects the true diversity of our community, especially as it pertains to women and minorities.

In addition, CTM supports a wide range of events and projects that help make Clifton a great place to live, work and play. Examples include: Holidays on Ludlow, Memorial Day Parade, CliftonFest, Clifton House Tour,  restoration of the Probasco Fountain, Summer Golf Outing, design and build of the Clifton Plaza, and publication of our quarterly community newsletter, the Clifton Chronicle.

As a Trustee, you will share your voice and skills regarding community events, beautification projects, and issues related to education, safety, transportation, business development, and housing and zoning. You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations such as Uptown Consortium, Clifton Cultural Arts Center, TriHealth, Clifton Business Association,  Invest In Neighborhoods, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful,  and Clifton Community Fund.
