Voters Tuesday chose mayors, city and township seats, school levies and tax issues from across the Dayton region on Tuesday.
More than 200 issues and races are on the ballot, including school tax issues in Centerville, Miamisburg, Northmont, West Carrollton, Brookville, New Lebanon, Lebanon, Tipp City, Troy, the Upper Valley Career Center and several other districts.
Here’s a look at some of the highlights
TROTWOOD MAYOR RACE TOO CLOSE TO CALL
With all precincts reporting, Mayor Mary McDonald is losing by two votes to challenger Councilwoman Yvette Page— 1,847 to 1,845.
SMITH, PICKETT WIN DAYTON SCHOOL BOARD SEATS; THIRD SEAT TOO CLOSE TO CALL
Will Smith and Gabriela Pickett have won two of the three open seats on the Dayton School Board, according to the unofficial election results.
The tally left it too close to call the third seat. Joe Lacey was 11 votes ahead of Dion Sampson Sr., with 6,383 and 6,372 votes, respectively.
BOB STONE FIRST MAYOR DIRECTLY ELECTED IN BEAVERCREEK
Incumbent Bob Stone pulled away from Julie Vann in a close race to be the city of Beavercreek’s next mayor.
With 100% of precincts counted, Stone garnered 54% while Vann garnered 46% of the vote, according to final, unofficial results from the Greene County Board of Elections.
LEVY FOR NEW SCHOOL BUILDINGS IN WEST CARROLLTON APPROVED
West Carrollton voters approved their school bond levy by a huge margin, with yes votes outnumbering no votes by a 63-37 ratio, according to final, unofficial results from the Montgomery County Board of Elections.
CENTERVILLE SCHOOLS LEVY PASSES NARROWLY
Voters in Centerville very narrowly approved a large 6.9-mill school levy Tuesday night to pay for both day-to-day school operating costs and building renovations. With all 41 precincts reporting, there were 7,887 votes in favor of the levy, and 7,593 votes against, for a ratio of 50.9 percent to 49.1 percent. That margin is close, but not close enough to trigger a recount.
DAYTON COMMISSIONERS RE-ELECTED
Incumbents Matt Joseph and Chris Shaw retained their Dayton City Commission seats Tuesday, beating out Shenise Turner-Sloss and David Esrati.
Joseph is the longest serving member of the commission and Tuesday’s vote secured his fifth term with a little under 31 percent of the vote, according to the unofficial tally. Shaw was elected to his second term with 30 percent of the vote.
Turner-Sloss was the closest challenger, taking about 26 percent of the vote. Turner-Sloss is a logistics management specialist and neighborhood organizer who co-founded the grassroots group Neighborhoods Over Politics.
Esrati, an outspoken activist and small-business owner, had 13 percent of the vote.
