Candidates business owner Chrissy Cruz, business owner David Turner and Wright State professor Taki Manolakos all failed to secure seats.  

 

The race sparked a debate about ways to attract more businesses to Yellow Springs. Police reform and  village affordability were also among the top issues.

Retired Teacher Pam Conine has been elected mayor of Yellow Springs.

Conine bested attorney Laura Curless, retired Wright-Patt employee Gerald Simms, and pharmacist Catherine Price.

The Yellow Springs Mayor is primarily responsible for the administration of the mayor’s court.
