Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz on Tuesday issued his first political endorsement for the 2021 general election.
In a Facebook post to his political page, Montz endorsed Tiffin City Board of Education candidate Dustin Williams.
“I urge you to join me in supporting Dustin Williams for Tiffin City Board of Education this November. I can say that without a doubt, Dustin Williams is the ideal candidate we need on our local board of education,” Montz wrote in the post.
“His meticulous style of thinking and attention to detail are both second to none. Dustin has a plan to restore transparency and communication from the school board to the public and will work tirelessly to ensure the students of this community receive the absolute best education possible,” Montz added.
According to Williams’ campaign page on Facebook, he is a Mohawk High School graduate and obtained his degree from Miami University. Williams said he and his wife, who is also from Tiffin, spent several years in Columbus with a short stint in Florida before moving back to Tiffin in 2014.
Williams currently works as a software engineer and teaches a computer science course at Ohio State University. He said he has three sons currently attending Tiffin City Schools.
“My primary reason is to rebuild the communication, trust, and respect between the community and the school board. We have some other problems, but I believe many of them stem from the communication, trust, and respect issues,” Williams wrote in a post to his campaign page.
Three of the five total seats on the school board are up for election this November.
Other candidates for those seats include:
- Christopher P. Widman (Incumbent school board member, nursing home administrator, Seneca County GOP chairman)
- Steven Borawski Jr. (Professor of Psychology at Tiffin University)
- Dean Henry (Attorney, former Tiffin City Board of Education member)
- Jeffrey A. Hoyda (Incumbent school board member, dentist)
- Larry J. Kisabeth (Tiffin Columbian Hall of Fame committee co-chair, former Tiffin City Schools administrator)
