DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Dayton voters are choosing between two Democrats with years of local political experience in the southwest Ohio city's nonpartisan mayoral race.
City Commissioner Nan Whaley and former county judge A.J. Wagner claimed the top two spots in the May primary runoff election that pitted them against current Mayor Gary Leitzell (LEYET'-zuhl). Leitzell was eliminated after finishing third.
Whaley and Wagner stress the need for job growth but differ on how to achieve it. Whaley says Dayton has made progress and wants to build on some plans already in place to help attract businesses and resulting obs. Wagner says major change is needed.
Whaley has been a commissioner for eight years. Wagner served as a judge in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court and as county auditor.
Polls close at 7:30 p.m.
