Nan Whaley

Mayor of Dayton and Democratic Candidate for Governor of Ohio

In 2018, Ohio will elect new statewide office holders. Leading up to the election, the City Club will be hosting conversations with candidates seeking statewide office.


On May 8, Nan Whaley announced her candidacy for Governor of Ohio. Whaley moved to Dayton from Indiana to attend the University of Dayton (UD), earning a chemistry degree in 1998. She became active in local and politics, creating the UD College Dems Chapter  and then becoming the executive director of the Montgomery County Democratic Party in 1997. From 2001 to 2005, she held as a job as an aide with the Montgomery County Auditor's Office.

She was first elected to office in 2005 as a member of the Dayton City Commission and was elected Mayor of Dayton in 2013. Whaley ran unopposed and was re-elected mayor earlier this year.


Join us for a conversation with gubernatorial candidate Nan Whaley.

    Excellent forum! It was terrific not only to hear a gubernatorial candidate speak in detail about her platform but to be able to engage in a dialogue with her through the City Club's traditional question and answer session. But the City Club does this all of the time! This is the public service that the City Club has provided for 105 years! I am so proud to be a member of The City Club of Cleveland!
