David Scott Mann (born September 25, 1939) is an American Democratic politician, lawyer, and the former Vice Mayor of Cincinnati. He is also a former member of the United States House of Representatives.


Mann was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1961 at Harvard University. After graduating, Mann served in the United States Navy, from 1961 to 1965. Afterwards, he was accepted at Harvard Law School and he was awarded a law degree in 1968. Mann's time at Harvard Law School is mentioned briefly at the beginning of Common Ground, J. Anthony Lukas's book about the Boston busing crisis of the 1970s.

Upon graduating, Mann returned to his home town of Cincinnati to practice law. He served on the municipal health board from 1972 to 1974 and then was elected to the city council, on which he served from 1974 to 1992. During his tenure on the city council, Mann served as mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, from 1980 to 1982 and again in 1991.

In 1992, Mann ran for a seat in the United States House of Representatives and won, defeating Republican[citation needed] Stephen Grote. He began serving in 1993 (103rd Congress) in Ohio's District 1. Two years later, in 1994, Mann lost his bid for re-election in the Republican takeover of the House to Steve Chabot.

In 2013, Mann ran for and won a seat on Cincinnati City Council.[1] He was simultaneously endorsed by the Democratic Party and the Charter Party.[2]
