Dayton, it looks like we have a primary.

So far, the race for Mayor has Nan Whaley, A.J. Wagner and Gary Leitzell for sure, and Eric LaMont Gregory, Derrick Folley have turned in petitions and are being checked. We know there will be at least 3 good petitions which guarantees a primary.

For City Commission, Joey Williams and I were turned in and checked. Jeff Mims turned in enough- but didn’t include the 80 signatures I had collected for him (apparently, Jeff isn’t interested in representing those voters). David Greer, William Pace have both turned in petitions with high probability of getting on the ballot- so we’ll have a primary. Joseph Lutz has turned in signatures as well, but with Greer and Pace turning in, we’ll have a primary.

The deadline is 4 pm today. Stay Tuned.
