Aftab was born and raised in Southwest Ohio, the son of first-generation Americans who came to this country to give themselves and their family more opportunities. The product of public schools, Aftab went off to The Ohio State University for college where he was student body president. Aftab is currently the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts, and is the first Democrat to hold this office in more than 100 years. As Clerk, Aftab has made access to justice a priority by launching a Help Center to assist people who are representing themselves with legal resources so more people can utilize our courts.
Aftab has also been active in our community, becoming the first man to serve on the board of the Women’s Fund. He is also on the boards of the Ohio Innocence Project, Cincinnati Union Bethel, and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. He has been awarded the NAACP Theodore Berry Award for Service and been recognized by the Business Courier as one of their 40 under 40.
