Foley Wins Another Term As Commissioner, Keith As Auditor In Montgomery County
Montgomery County residents will see some familiar faces in office after the Nov. 4 election.
Democrat Dan Foley will hold his seat as Montgomery County Commissioner. The three-way race pitted him against Republican Mike Nolan and former Dayton Mayor Gary Leitzell. Foley squeaked out a victory over Nolan by capturing only 1,800 more votes. Leitzell came in a distant third. This win means Foley’s third term on the commission.
Voters kept Democrat Karl Keith as county auditor. He’s been in that position for the last 14 years. The final results in that race gave Keith 55 percent of the vote; Republican opponent Harry Bossey captured 45 percent. This was Bossey’s second attempt to unseat Keith.
And Montgomery County voters also approved a human services levy. That money will be used to support services for senior citizens, foster kids, and the poor and unemployed.
