Tuesday’s election in North College Hill, Ohio was nothing short of historic as voters elected Tracie Nichols the first African American mayor of North College Hill.
Nichols, who has served on the North College Hill board for several years, is also the third woman to hold the city’s top office.
“I’m just elated and happy that the people chose me,” Nichols said. “I’m ready to go out and do great things.”
As mayor, Nichols says she plans to make North College Hill a model for neighborhoods across Cincinnati.
“We’re a family-oriented community. We want things for our residents in our community and to bring people in and say, ‘hey they’re doing this over in North College Hill. I want to be a part of that,’” Nichols said.
