Elected Officials

(The people who ask for our votes every two or four years)

"With great power, comes great responsibility"

-Stan Lee

Every branch of government is ran by elected officials. Our goal is to connect Westside residents with our elected officials. The elected officials listed below have all appeared on our ballots. Take a moment to learn about their positions, read about the current individuals in different positions, and share the information with someone.

It is up to Westside residents to ensure our elected officials continue to represent our collective voices. It is also up to Westside residents to discuss our elected officials' contribution to our community!

Coming Soon 2022-  Elected Official Report Cards for 2021!

Stay up to date with our Dayton, Trotwood, & Jefferson School Board members!

Stay up to date with our Mayor, City Commissioners, City Council, Trustee and municipal court judges

Stay up to date with our Montgomery County elected officials and Court of Common pleas judges!

Stay up to date with Appeals court judges, Supreme Court justices, and state of Ohio elected officials!

Stay up to date with Congress!
