DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton City Commissioner Jeffrey Mims announced that he will be running for mayor.
Mims made the announcement outside of the Cleveland Elementary School Monday morning.
The commissioner has spent more than 40 years serving the Dayton community. Mims first worked as a teacher before later joining the Dayton School Board and the State Board of Education.
The next mayor will replace the current mayor of Dayton, Nan Whaley.
Last week Whaley announced she will not be running for re-election in 2022. She was first elected as mayor in 2013. There’s been no word on what she plans to do next.
