Dani is a lifelong Cincinnatian, the son of immigrants, and a proud graduate of Walnut Hills High School. Dani started a small business, Cohear, that brings leaders and community members together to solve problems and improve local policy. Through his work at Cohear, he has spent countless evenings organizing, listening to, and learning from the ideas of thousands of people in communities across Cincinnati, working closely with leaders from Cincinnati Public Schools, Children’s Hospital, the Health Department, and other major institutions.
Dani got his start as a community organizer for President Obama’s campaign, went on to Yale Law School, and has worked for years to register new voters, protect the right to vote, and elect Democrats all over the country. Dani is a longtime mentor, and serves on a number of non-profit boards, including the Jewish Community Relations Council, Women of Cincy, and the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project. He lives in Evanston and loves to cook for new friends, so if you see him, ask him to bring over a lasagna or a banana pudding some time!
Dani (pronounced like “Sunny” with a “D”) is running for State Representative to fight for our community’s priorities in Columbus and to infuse new energy and optimism into our politics.
Dani’s platform is rooted in the years he has spent at Cohear listening to and learning from people across Cincinnati. His campaign will focus on building pathways from school to a stable career, making the workforce better for working parents, and investing in our young people to keep them and our communities safe. Democrats may not control the State House, but now is the time for visionary leadership that injects our politics with a renewed sense of purpose and possibility. There is important work to do in Columbus, and Dani is ready to listen and lead.
