"If it's good for Cincinnati, I'm against it." - Edward Christian Gingerich, Mayor of Cheviot from 1942-1967
Former Cheviot Mayor Gingerich was born on November 3, 1904, to his parents Clement and Nancy, who lived at 3967 Washington Ave. This is the house Mayor Gingerich would live in his entire life.
When Gingerich ran for Mayor in 1941, not only was he the first candidate to win the election against an incumbent, he was also the first Democrat to hold the office.
Mayor Gingerich passed away in 1967, at St. Francis Hospital. Albert William Schottelkotte Sr. served as Mayor for the remainder of the year.
