As a 45-year resident of Kettering where my husband Jim and I have raised our 5 children, I am excited at the opportunity to find solutions to the issues facing our community and to best serve you and your family.

Peggy Lehner has what it takes to help our Kettering community rebound and grow as we navigate the future. She is a proven leader who brings two decades of experience finding solutions for our community as a City Council Member, State Representative and Senator.


Peggy has raised her family and worked in Kettering-both as a volunteer and leader. As Mayor, she can put her deep working knowledge of our community to work from day one, leveraging local and state resources to help our families, businesses and schools thrive.


As a public servant Peggy has earned a reputation for being a strong, collaborative leader. She fearlessly tackles difficult issues with creativity and inclusive leadership. That is why Peggy was widely regarded as one of the best listeners in the Statehouse and as Mayor her door will always be open for the citizens of Kettering.


While on City Council Peggy Lehner led efforts to improve the quality of life for our most vulnerable seniors. In the Senate she founded and led the bipartisan Children’s Caucus championing children’s issues from foster care to Early Childhood Education. She will fight for our families.
