Brodie, a Republican has been Waterville mayor since 2011. Prior to that she served two terms on Waterville council. She tells 13abc, "it's been a long time since a Republican has held office in Lucas County government. I believe a balance would promote new ideas, progress, and positive change for our region."

Brodie and Webb are expected to run unopposed in the May primary and face off in November to complete the two years left of the treasurer's term
