Laure Quinlivan has shown courage and commitment as a Cincinnati Council Member, and as an Investigative Reporter.

She led Channel 9’s I-Team for 13 years, watching over taxpayer money and winning national honors for public service reporting. She exposed mismanagement and fraud with stadium construction, and her 2001 documentary “Visions of Vine Street,” inspired the revitalization of OTR.

She founded her video storytelling company, LQ Consulting, in 2008. Clients include government, nonprofits and small businesses. As a certified woman-owned business owner, she understands how to help small businesses succeed.

Laure was elected to Cincinnati Council in 2009 and developed the city’s Mobile Food Vending program, and Community Entertainment Districts, which have created more than 1000 jobs and 100 new restaurants.

She is a progressive. Laure led the good government reform to 4-year council terms.  She championed Cincinnati Streetcar.

We can trust Laure to research best practices, find innovative solutions to city problems, and make decisions in the best interest of citizens.

Laure is active in Cincinnati Rotary Club. Her community volunteer work includes Mt. Lookout Development Corporation and Kilgour School.  Laure is also a co-founder of a new non-profit, Women in Film Cincinnati.
