The mayor went into details about the amazing accomplishments the city has made and are still to come.
Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther delivered his State of the City address Thursday night.
“I am constantly amazed at the diversity of the residents of this great city. Almost 250,000 residents are African-American, 103,000 are foreign born, 53,000 are Latinos, 41,000 are veterans and 38,000 identify as LGBTQ.
Our population continues to get younger – the median age is 32. But more than 65,000 children under the age of 5 and more than 86,000 senior citizens also call Columbus home.”
With these numbers, the mayor says Columbus is the fastest growing city in the Midwest. Not only is it the driving force for the state economy but for the entire region.
