Jeremy Neff is the chair of various committees aimed at making Cincinnati one of the greatest cities in the country…and mostly formed while gathered with friends at the Comet and Grammer’s. Occasionally he has also appointed relative strangers to these committees, and for this he apologizes.
These committees have such worthy goals as: flying a pig on Fountain Square to mark the New Year and to give New York City’s dropping of a ball a run for its money (and relegating Port Clinton’s dropping of a Walleye to second place for coolest New Year’s Eve events in Ohio); organizing celebrations of the 75th Anniversary of the 21st Amendment; creating a series of urban hikes in Cincinnati’s core ascending the seven hills by way of public stairways; and creating a streetcar float for the Bockfest parade (Jeremy anxiously awaits the opportunity to ride a real streetcar to such events in the future – walking through the blizzard this year was rough).
Jeremy’s current obsession is promoting local shopping for the holidays. For this project he has partnered with local shopping guide www.buycincy.com. Guest writers from throughout the city have committed to spending a portion of their holiday budgets at locally-owned businesses and will be posting stories about their experiences throughout the month of December.
When he is not busy with his committees, or enjoying the arts and food that make Cincinnati great, Jeremy is a former high school teacher and coach turned school lawyer.
