DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton City Commissioner Nan Whaley plans to run for the office of Dayton mayor.
Whaley, a Democrat, made the announcement at a news conference, Monday, Dec. 3
“This town has taught me so much since I first stepped foot on the UD campus in the fall of 1994," Whaley said. "I have learned a lot during my time in public service, and I have learned a lot while serving two terms on the Dayton City Commission. I know this city has a rich history. I am running for mayor because I believe Dayton deserves an even richer future."
She will be challenging current Mayor Gary Leitzell and former judge A.J. Wagner, who announced in May his intent to run.
