Truman A. Greenwood, known as Tim Greenwood, is a Republican politician who formerly served in the Ohio General Assembly. As an attorney and political novice, Greenwood challenged incumbent Representative Arlene Singer in 1988.[1] With the district being traditionally Republican, Greenwood won against Singer in an upset victory.[2] He was sworn in on January 3, 1989.[3]

Greenwood easily won a second term in 1990, with 58% of the vote.[4] He faced a primary challenge in 1992,[5] but went on to win both the primary and general elections soundly. He again was reelected in 1994, for a fourth consecutive term.[6]

In 1994, Senator Betty Montgomery was elected as Ohio Attorney General, and went on to resign from her Senate seat. As a result a vacancy occurred, and Greenwood was appointed to take her place. He resigned from the House in January 1995, and was appointed in the Ohio Senate subsequently. However, only six months into his Senate tenure, Greenwood announced he would resign, citing an inability to spend time with his family.[7] He resigned from the Senate in October 1995.

Following his resignation, he returned to private law practice. From 1999 to 2003, he served by gubernatorial appointment as a member of the Ohio Turnpike Commission. Currently, he serves as outside counsel for the Ohio Attorney General and is the Law Director of Sylvania Township.
