Michelle Mills has made a promise to Columbus—a promise to make sure our communities, neighborhoods, and great city are all that they can be. And it’s a promise she is fighting every day to keep.
Michelle’s passion for improving Columbus is endless. Delivering the promise and moving Columbus forward: that’s what Michelle Mills is about. And that’s why she’s running for reelection to City Council.
During her time on City Council, Michelle has worked with her fellow members to support measures aimed at improving the quality of life for all Columbus residents, especially working families.
As the current chair of the Development Committee, Michelle fights everyday to create jobs and economic opportunity for the entire city of Columbus. In 2014 alone, she sponsored legislation to bring more than 3,600 new jobs. Tackling blight in our neighborhoods is another top priority for Michelle. Whether it is funding home repair programs for low-income families, or spearheading legislation to hold negligent landlords accountable, she’s always doing something to move Columbus forward.
Michelle is also the inaugural chair of the Environment Committee, which was created in 2014 to help the city preserve and protect the natural resources that contribute to our high quality of life. Michelle has championed safer streets for cyclists, transforming neighborhoods through urban farming and the expansion of Columbus’ residential recycling program.
As the former chair of the Education and Public Safety & Judiciary Committees, Michelle has worked to keep Columbus’ neighborhoods strong. Some of her proudest accomplishments include funding hundreds of children to access pre-K education, enhancing penalties for repeat trespassers and supporting the creation of a new special docket for military and veteran service members.
