Langshaw Addresses Rumors about Possible Run for North Royalton Mayor or Council President

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 3, 2019

(North Royalton, Ohio)— Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw has been rumored for months about a possible run for North Royalton Mayor or Council President. Langshaw 33 years old is one of the few current city elected officials who have successfully won citywide office before. In 2009, at the age of 23 he became the youngest resident in city history to be elected and serve on the North Royalton School Board. Langshaw served on the Board till 2013 and then has been the Ward 3 Councilman ever since.

On January 3rd Councilman Langshaw ended all the rumors with officially pulling his petitions at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to seek a fourth elected term on the North Royalton City Council for Ward 3 to continue his dedicated service to his residents and provide trusted veteran leadership for the community on Council.

After pulling his petitions Langshaw said “Serving as Mayor or Council President of North Royalton is something I definitely want to do in the near future and would be an honor. Seeking higher local elected office would allow me to help so many more residents and give me the ability to make an even greater difference for my home town. I appreciate all those in the community who have been urging me to run the last few months. However after meeting with my family over the holidays, some personal prayer, and self-reflection I am committed to continuing my service to my residents as the Ward 3 Councilman. At this point in my life since my young family has grown recently with the addition of my youngest son Derek, my dedication to working to complete some unfinished projects/issues in my ward, and ensuring my residents voices are heard on Council remain my continued number one priority. Just not the right time yet. However I will reassess again in a few years.”

A majority of City Council will be termed out of office. Langshaw plans to seek the Council Pro Tem position which is voted on by the new council once they are seated. The Council Pro Tem fills in for the Council President when they are absent. “As a US Army Veteran service is something that is in my DNA. 2020 will be a challenging transition year for our city. As a leader I believe my proven experience, dedication to service and leadership will be an asset to our community! As I a leader I plan to step up to the challenge by hopefully being selected to serve as Council Pro Tem and help mentor the new members of Council with my experience, so together we all can provide great service to our community” said Langshaw.
