P.G. Sittenfeld has been called a “rising star” by The Hill, Roll Call, and NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd. P.G. is currently serving in his second term as a member of Cincinnati City Council, where he chairs the City's Education & Entrepreneurship Committee.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, P.G. is a graduate of Princeton University and was awarded a Marshall Scholarship to attend graduate school at Oxford University. Following his studies and after completing a fellowship at Google, P.G. turned down an offer to continue working at the technology company to return to his hometown to co-found the Community Learning Center Institute. In this role, he has helped transform the Cincinnati Public School District and neighborhoods across the city by taking underused schools and rebuilding them into hubs of opportunity for mentoring, learning, and health care access for the entire community. These efforts have led to improved academic outcomes in Cincinnati – and inspired similar programs across Ohio and in cities including New York and Philadelphia. As a lifelong Democrat, P.G. has been a tireless advocate for a more fair and inclusive economy; greater social and racial justice; expanded voters rights, LGBT equality, and women's rights; and meaningful action on climate change.
P.G. is an active civic volunteer, having served as a board member for the Freestore Foodbank, The Nature Conservancy of Ohio, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Cincinnati, Women Helping Women, and the Breakthrough Collaborative. He is married to Dr. Sarah Coyne Sittenfeld, a medical resident at The Christ Hospital, and they have a rescue dog named Oakley.
