All this week, WTRF is helping you make informed decisions when you head to the polls on primary day.
Thursday we focus on Wheeling Mayoral Candidate Glenn Elliott.
Glenn was born and raised in Wheeling, graduated from Linsly before heading to college and eventually law school working in Washington D.C.
In 2008 he wanted to move back to his hometown. It’s that hometown that he wants to lead by running for mayor.
“I think we have to make Wheeling more attractive to young people, we can’t just become a city of folks 55 and up and it’s not sustainable in the long term. We have to think about downtown as place for people to come and experience. It can’t be a place of parking and businesses we need to see some life injection of energy,” said Elliott.
Elliott is one of four people running for mayor.
You can head to our website, YourOhioValley.com for information on Elliott’s candidacy and all of the candidates we have talked to this week.
Next week 7news will talk to six people running for Ohio County Board of Education seats.
