"We don't serve to get elected; We get elected to serve."

About Councilmember Hardin Councilmember Hardin has said that his time on Council will be measured by how much he can improve the lives of vulnerable young people in Columbus. Councilmember Hardin serves as the Co-Chair of the Columbus My Brother's Keeper Initiative, which aims to bridge opportunity gaps for young people of color and raise the bar for the entire community.  

As our city grows, Councilmember Hardin is committed to ensuring a spot for everyone and creating a robust transportation system to connect residents with jobs, education, and healthcare.

As External Affairs Manager for the Office of Mayor Michael B. Coleman, Councilmember Hardin launched a number of programs to serve the most marginalized in Columbus. This includes Restoration Academy, an annual program that offers paid internships to restored citizens, as well as A.P.P.S., a community-focused effort to reduce crime and violence through street-level interruption and conflict mediation teamed with support services to address the risk factors that can lead youth into a life of crime and violence. - learn more
