Election 2021: What to know about new Dayton leaders, local school boards and more

In Tuesday’s elections, voters in Dayton chose a new mayor, while voters across the area decided school board members and two key tax issues.

Below are some of the top races and issues in the greater Dayton area.

Beavercreek school board

From an initial set of five candidates, two incumbents and one newcomer were elected to the Beavercreek school board, according to unofficial final results.

Incumbent school board candidates JoAnn Rigano and Krista Hunt won their Beavercreek school board races as did newcomer Carl Fischer, according to unofficial, final results from the Greene County Board of Elections on Tuesday.

Centerville school board

After a hotly-disputed race, all three incumbents were reelected to the Centerville school board, according to final but unofficial results.

Centerville’s board of education campaign matched a slate of challengers who ran as a team — Lysa Kosins, Dawn McGuire and Heather Schultz — against incumbents John Doll, Dr. David Roer and Megan Sparks on another.

Dayton city commission

Shenise Turner-Sloss and Darryl Fairchild both won seats on the Dayton city commission, beating two other candidates that were endorsed by the Montgomery County Democratic Party.

The race heated up in the final week after a controversy about mailers critical of Turner-Sloss and Fairchild led to the resignation of a county party leader.

Greene County jail levy

According to unofficial final voting results, Greene County voters rejected a 0.25% sales tax to fund the construction of a combined jail and sheriff’s office.

Montgomery County human services levy

By an overwhelming margin, Montgomery County voters renewed the human services levy, paying for more than 35 nonprofits and services for several groups, according to final unofficial results.

Springboro school board

In a crowded field of eight candidates seeking three seats, all three incumbents were reelected to the Springboro school board, according to final unofficial voting results.
