NEWS FOR OUR NEIGHBORS:
Darryl Fairchild recently addressed Dayton City Commissioners, calling on them to develop a cohesive and comprehensive plan for residential neighborhood development.
“While economic development is best initiated by private partners, neighborhood development must be led by the City, with genuine resident participation," Fairchild urged.
“Alongside the Greater Downtown Dayton Plan, we need the Great Dayton Neighborhood Plan, a plan that addresses the need of 93% of the city and the needs of 99% of the residents who live beyond downtown."

Fairchild for Dayton City Commission
A life-long Dayton resident and a leader who has advocated for the people of Dayton for decades, Darryl Fairchild knows that as a city we can do better. But improvements and the needed realignment of priorities require the right kind of leader. Darryl Fairchild is such a leader.
Darryl Fairchild knows Dayton intimately--its streets, its buildings, its sectors and, especially, its people. And he knows that our neighborhoods have been ignored for far too long. As a City Commissioner, he will focus on improving our neighborhoods, ensuring that they get the attention they both need and deserve. He will make sure that economic development downtown does not overshadow the need for improvements in our neighborhoods and that public money expended benefits all Daytonians, not just those of a higher income bracket. He will make sure that the elimination of blighted, abandoned properties becomes a higher priority, that more resources are devoted to programs for our city's youth, and that the alternative economy models growing in popularity in other U.S. cities are fully explored and considered in Dayton.
A respected and experienced community leader, Fairchild will work hard to make our neighborhoods places where people are proud to live and work and raise a family.
He asks for your support and your vote in November.
