Thanks to fifteen community volunteers who worked, debated, and brainstormed on the Dayton Together Charter Development Committee, we are releasing a draft charter—the Dayton Metro government. Our model is a Council-Manager government, incorporating professional management that has served our communities well for a century. It includes a mayor voted on by all 535,000 residents, one at-large countywide council seat, and 9 geographic districts, with the mission of bringing the community together to tackle shared opportunities and challenges.
