Trotwood Mayor Mary McDonald is facing a re-election challenge from City Councilwoman Yvette Page
In Riverside, political outsider Pete Williams received 1,674 votes — more than the other three candidates combined — according to final, unofficial results from the Montgomery County Board of Elections.
Williams, director of advancement at Carroll High School, was the only one of four candidates for the job who hasn’t served on city council. Williams will replace Mayor Bill Flaute, who didn’t run for re-election.
“From the time I pulled petitions to run in July, the overwhelming thing I heard was that people wanted change,” Williams said Tuesday. “I want to get Riverside better connected to the region.”
Englewood Vice Mayor Thomas Franz also won by a wide margin to become Englewood’s next mayor, beating Mike Klingler 1,687 to 713, according to election night results. Franz will replace outgoing Mayor Patricia Burnside.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you,” Franz said to voters. “Thank you for showing confidence in me and my fellow council.”
