 Mayor Michael B. Coleman

Michael B. Coleman (b. November 18, 1954) is an American politician of the Democratic party. He is the current mayor of Columbus, Ohio. Coleman earned an undergraduate degree in political science at the University of Cincinnati and a law degree from the University of Dayton. Coleman was a member of the Columbus City Council from 1992-1999, and served as President of the City Council from 1997-1999. In 1998, Coleman was the running mate for gubernatorial candidate Lee Fisher. Coleman ran for and won the Columbus mayorship in 1999, and was re-elected unopposed November 4, 2003. He served as a delegate for John Kerry on the Ohio delegation to the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. In February 2005, Coleman announced that he would run for the Democratic party nomination for Governor of Ohio during the 2006 election.

On April 20, 2005, Coleman made an on-air telephone call to conservative talk show host Glenn Beck after Beck had publically criticized Coleman's administration concerning the rape of a handicapped girl at a Columbus high school, and the school's consequent failure to respond. The much publicized on-air argument that ensued between the two brought national attention to what had been a local news story. Coleman dismissed Beck's criticism as politically motivated citing his planned 2006 gubernatorial bid.

On October 20, 2006, Coleman's wife Frankie Coleman was arrested after failing a field sobriety test and charged with two counts of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. A blood alcohol content test results measured .271 (the legal limit in Ohio is .08). Mrs. Coleman's vehicle struck a parked pickup truck. She was not injured in the crash.
