On Monday, Dayton mayoral candidate A.J. Wagner received a slew of endorsements from Democrats and republicans alike.
Wagner has listed his ability to work across party lines as a key strength in his bid for mayor. On October 28th, he received public endorsements from Independent Mayor Gary Leitzel, Republican Congressman Mike Turner, Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer and Democrat Rhine McLin, former mayor of Dayton. McLin was not present at the news conference where the endorsements were made.

The race for Dayton mayor between City Commissioner Nan Whaley, and former Montgomery County Pleas Judge A J Wagner will be decided on November 5th. Both candidates are Democrats but they disagree on a number of issues. As part of WYSO's 2013 election coverage, we spoke with both candidates about where they stand.
Here is where each candidate stands on the issues we talked about:
DATV went on the air on March 1, 1978 under the leadership of Dayton resident Roxie Cole. 35 years later the station is still going strong, providing a voice for community members and teaching media skills to local residents. WYSO's Juliet Fromholt sat down with DATV's Dan Suffoletto and Melissa Constantine to talk about the history of the station and how they're celebrating their 35th anniversary.
