Brian successfully reestablished the St. Francis/St. Joseph Catholic Worker House for homeless men in Over the Rhine, and has advocated for the development and enhancement of the West End, English Woods, Bond Hill, and Over-the-Rhine. Brian has been a strong voice in protecting our environment, having restarted Earth Company at the University of Cincinnati and worked for the Toxic Action Project to increase awareness of toxic waste problems across Ohio. In addition to teaching sign language, Brian also opened Deaf Drug Treatment Programs. As a strong supporter of gay equality, Brian was a very active volunteer with successful campaign to Repeal Article XII. Active on numerous Democratic campaigns for the past 25 years, Brian has been a staunch supporter of developing Cincinnati's work force, setting a livable minimum wage, and ensuring that Cincinnati's hard working families are protected, supported, and heard by the city government.
