It’s time for another Take Five, HOH’s chance to get to know a member of Congress with five fun questions relatively unrelated to the business of legislation. This week, Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, breaks down his love of history, Cincinnati and dogs over cats.
Q. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A. A lot of different things at different points. Probably the longest term as a kid, probably an airline pilot. It’d be interesting to fly to different places. Never did it, but that’s what I probably wanted to be. Wanted to be a schoolteacher, and I did do that. Never thought of being a politician when I was very young, but one never knows how things are going to turn out in one’s life.
