Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley today announced endorsements of her campaign for Governor from another group of local elected officials, adding their support to a growing list of community leaders and labor organizations from around Ohio.
“I am humbled to receive the support of these proven community leaders from around our state,” said Whaley. “They know that in order to move our state forward, we need bold new ideas and on-the-ground, community-focused leadership to get it done.”
Whaley picked up the endorsements of:
–David Berger, Mayor of Lima
–Nick Komives, Toledo City Councilmember-Elect
–John Boellner, Maumee City Councilmember
–Don Hollister, Miami Twp. Trustee-Elect
–Mike Moroski, Cincinnati School Board Member-Elect
–Richard Brown, State Representative, Ohio House District 20
–Chris Knisely, Athens City Council President
“I heartily endorse my friend and colleague, Nan Whaley, in her campaign to become Ohio’s Governor,” said Lima Mayor David Berger. “As a long-serving local government official and now as Dayton’s Mayor, Nan has demonstrated the ability to bring folks together, to lead efforts to attack and solve serious challenges and to create and pursue a vision of prosperity for all citizens.”
In August, Whaley announced that she had received the support of 27 local community leaders from around the state.
“I have great respect for Nan Whaley, and I’m excited to endorse her for Governor because of the progressive and proven leadership she’s shown in Dayton,” said Cincinnati School Board Member-Elect Mike Moroski. “She’s the only candidate we’ve seen bring bold ideas to the table, like universal pre-K and free community college, to address how we’ll prepare our kids and our workforce for the jobs of the future.”
