"In 1976 we exported cars, today we export our college graduates." – Nan Whaley

Leading up to the election on November 8, 2022, The City Club of Cleveland extended invitations to the Republican and Democratic Party candidates running for Ohio Governor. Join us in-person at the City Club to hear from the Democratic Candidate for Governor of Ohio, Nan Whaley.

Whaley grew up in a small town in Indiana and moved to Ohio to attend the University of Dayton, becoming the first person in her family to graduate from college. In 2005, she became the youngest women ever elected to the Dayton City Commission. She then served on the Montgomery County Board of Elections and as a deputy to the Montgomery County Auditor.

In 2013, Nan Whaley was elected as the 56th mayor of Dayton, and remained in that role after winning reelection in 2017. She left her position in 2022 to run for Ohio Governor. During her time as Mayor, Dayton became the first major city in Ohio to offer paid family leave for all municipal employees, and made high quality preschool available to every 3 and 4-year-old. Whaley was selected as the President of the United State Conference of Mayors from 2021 to 2022.

The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
