State Representative Roland Winburn, a Dayton native and graduate of Chaminade High School earned a bachelor¿s degree in psychology from Central State University. He used his formal education in his work as a psychotherapist employed by Good Samaritan Hospital and Health Center, and as a Child and Family Psychotherapist in a private psychological practice.
He began his life in public service when Montgomery County¿s Office of Family and Children First hired him to coordinate the planning and evaluation of community health, human and social service programs, and staff to the Local Children¿s Trust Fund Advisory Board. He also managed several Montgomery County General Fund contracts and Human Services Levy recipient agencies, e.g. the Area Agency on Aging and the Ombudsman¿s Office, and The Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board, Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities Board, The Combined Health District, and the Children Services Board.
Representative Winburn was then appointed as a Harrison Township Trustee in 2001 and elected to full, four-year terms in 2002 and 2006. He actively represented the Township on the Harrison Township Community Improvement Corporation, the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, the County Corporation¿s Housing Committee, the First Suburbs Consortium of Dayton, Dayton Public Schools¿ Community Leadership Committee and the Salem Avenue Corridor Committee.
He is a member of the Montgomery County Township Association, the Ohio Township Association, the Coalition of Large Ohio Urban Townships, and the National Association of Towns and Townships. His dedication to local government was so well-respected that Governor Bob Taft appointed Representative Winburn to his Eminent Domain Task Force representing Ohio townships.
Representative Winburn is a successful businessman, working as owner/founder of Ajenti Limousine Service in Dayton. He recently worked for the National Conference for Community and Justice of Greater Dayton as Fund Development Director.
