Christopher Wyche

Columbus City Council, District 1, OH

2023 Endorsement

Christopher, a Boston native, has spent most of his adult life in the Greater Columbus area. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University with a B.A in Economics Management. Chris currently resides in Columbus with his wife and two children, and works at AT&T Ohio as the Director of External Affairs, building relationships with Mayors, City Managers, Council Members and County Commissioners to address telecommunications policy issues in northwest Ohio.

Chris believes that Columbus is an opportunity city that strives to be the best city to live, work and grow in, but acknowledges that not all residents share the same experience. As the city grows, there are several challenges that need to be addressed, including an outdated transit system, a looming workforce development crisis, a housing shortage and limited support for people living in poverty. To address these challenges, City Council members need to have a unified vision for the city and a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities to their respective districts.

This is why Christopher is running to be the first City Council Member representing District 1. He aims to be a voice for those who feel forgotten in his community, bring innovative approaches to the challenges faced by Columbus, and navigate the historic change the city is currently undergoing.
