Council

For many of you, this may be an introduction. If so, I would like to say hello. My name is John W. Key, Jr. I am the current Mayor of the Village of Lincoln Heights. After being elected to council by the voters, I was elected by my peers, the members of council, to preside over council meetings and represent the village as the head    of the municipality. This is quite an honor.

I am the 39 year old son of Johnnie and Estelle Key. I was born in Lincoln Heights and moved away a year later to Hazelwood. We attended church there, under the leadership of Eddie "Pop" Foster. I have been married for 18 years to Tonya (Norman) born and raised in Lincoln Heights, and I have a 16 year old daughter (Tiana) and an 11 year old son (John III or Tre). I returned to Lincoln Heights in 2007, thinking it would be a temporary stay. After asking some questions of "why" things were the way they were, the late Lois Graham asked me "why" don't I get involved to be the change that I wanted to see? I decided to start a not-for-profit called the Greater Cincinnati Minority Foundation (GCMF) with my wife Tonya to solicit volunteerism in education and recreation. While it didn't flourish, we were able to host two Black History programs and ramp up the PTO involvement at the elementary school.

In 2009, after much prompting, I decided to run for office as a member of council. This was successful and I have been representing the residents of Lincoln Heights since. Now you know a little bit about me.


Best regards,

John W. Key, Jr.,

Mayor



FYI - For your information,

Prior to the adoption of the Charter in 1993, Lincoln Heights had a Strong Mayor who was employed full-time for the village. Since 1993, Lincoln Heights has a Council-Manager form of government. This means council appoints a Manager to work full-time for the village and run the day-to-day operations for council. Her office responds to complaints, service requests, and any other issues pertaining to the administration of the village. Although the form of government has changed, the managers office and the mayor's office works together to see that the village progresses.


"The Mayor shall preside at Council meetings and shall have no power of veto. He/she is obligated to sign all legislation passed by Council. He/she shall be the ceremonial and representative head of the Municipality, but shall exercise no administrative power except as otherwise provided in the Charter. He/she shall be recognized as the official head of the Municipality for military purposes and by the Courts for the purposes of serving civil process" (Section 2.06 of Charter)
