Thank you Dayton!

Thank you Dayton for your vote of confidence in my ability to continue steering Dayton in the right direction. It has been necessary to make some tough decisions these past few years to get us through rough economic times, and the experience that I have gained making sure that we take care of our city's long term health will serve us well as things start to turn around.

I believe that our future is promising and I look forward to working with Mayor Whaley and my colleagues on Commission to continue to make smart decisions based on the long-term interests of our citizens, focusing on providing quality services, fostering job creation and strengthening our neighborhoods. 

It's truly been a pleasure to serve you, the citizens of Dayton, and I look forward to continuing our work to make Dayton the welcoming and successful community we know it can be. Thank you!
