Incumbent Mayor Tom McMasters will not run for re-election, he told the Dayton Daily News. Instead, he said he will seek to endorse a candidate who can better direct city leaders to spend money wisely and ensure government transparency.
“Obviously, I’ve had difficulties with both of those,” McMasters said about his time leading council, “so we’ll see if there’s any candidate with commitment to those.”
McMasters unseated the previous incumbent mayor and is in his first term.
Byrge will run at-large against Rick Stan, who unsuccessfully ran for Ward 6 in 2015, and Chase Warden. Running against Campbell in Ward 5 is Linda Morin. In Ward 4, where Councilwoman Judy Blankenship is not seeking re-election, candidates Andrew Hill and Carl Urbanas Sr. will face off.
