Four Candidates Vie For Two Open Seats On Montgomery County Commission
Two seats on the Montgomery County Commission are up for grabs this election – with four candidates running for two open seats.
Vying for the first open seat on the Commission is Democratic incumbent candidate Judy Dodge. She’s been a commissioner since 2006. Before that, she spent six years as county recorder.
Her opponent is Republican candidate Bob Matthews. He has 40 years of experience in information technology and management. Matthews also serves as vice-president of the Miami Township Board of Trustees in Montgomery County.
Going after the second open seat on the commission is incumbent Debbie Liberman, whose third term as commissioner is ending. The Democrat is running against Republican Gary Leitzell. He served two years as Dayton Mayor before losing to Mayor Nan Whaley in 2013.
The candidates have similar platforms. All list job training, workforce readiness, and Montgomery County’s continuing drug overdose epidemic as top priorities, if elected on November 8th.
