Despite the local Democratic party’s private plans for the Dayton City Commission involving Nan Whaley beating Gary Leitzell and Rhine McLin taking Nan’s old seat- or Dean’s once she fails the first time and he resigns as a back-up plan- A.J. Wagner decides to run- of course, you read it before anyone else on this site.
Former Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge A.J. Wagner announced Tuesday his candidacy in the 2013 race for mayor.
“I come to this announcement well equipped and uniquely qualified to be mayor,” said Wagner, pointing to his near three decades of public service, including 20 years as an elected official.
Wagner, a Democrat and former county auditor, has long been rumored to be interested in the job.
His new site doesn’t look as good as his first one- but, what do we care? A.J.’s bravado is unmatched. First he quits after 2 years of his judgeship, and now he thinks he should be mayor. We posted a list of questions for our future mayor right after we leaked his site: “Questions for A.J. Wagner-our future Mayor”
He hasn’t answered them on the post- or on his site: http://ajwagnerformayor.com/ and we know he knows about them because I sent him an email asking him to respond- to which he wrote on 4/30/2101 at 3:58 PM: “Thank you David, but I am not a candidate at this time.”
Well, now that you are… we’d like answers please.
