TROY — William “Bill” Lutz, Troy city council president, announced Monday he will run for mayor of Troy next year in a Republican primary against current Mayor Robin Oda.

Oda, in her first four-year term, announced earlier this year that she would seek re-election.

Lutz served as a council member in 2018-19 and as council president since 2020. He works as executive director of The New Path Inc., a nonprofit, and is owner/principal of Pinnacle Strategies Ltd., a coaching and consulting service to nonprofit organizations.

In his announcement, Lutz said he thinks the community “needs an administration that is more responsive to the concerns from residents.”
