TROY, OHIO - At-Large Council Member William Lutz has announced he will campaign to be the next President of Troy City Council.


    "President Baker deserves this community's thanks and respect for her long service as a diligent and responsive leader of our community, both as a Second Ward representative as as President of Council. It is in the same spirit of her leadership that I am announcing that I will campaign to be the next City Council President, " said William Lutz.


    "As City Council President I will be committed to continue the hard work we have created over the last few months. I will continue to believe that our residents are our community's greatest assets and I will continue to collaborate with council members to ensure that our local government is responsive, transparent and future focused," Lutz continued.


    "Over the last eleven months, I have worked extremely hard with other members of our council, our city administration, and most importantly, our residents to create collaborative solutions to our city's most pressing issues. The results have been very positive; a new downtown overlay zoning district which has created new opportunities for downtown residential and commercial development and our city council has frozen our refuse collection fees," Lutz said.



    William "Bill" Lutz is a life-long resident of the City of Troy and is currently serving his first term on the Troy City Council. With a history of accomplishments, he's ready to continue his commitment to serve the residents of the City of Troy.
