GREENVILLE — Greenville voters on Tuesday selected three GOP candidates as nominees for Greenville City Council.

Incumbent Council Members Jeff Whitaker and Doug Schmidt will be joined by candidate Brian Brown as the Republican nominees for three “at large” seats on council, to be determined in the Nov. 2, 2021, general election.

Incumbent Councilman Doug Wright failed to receive a nomination, falling short with 19.97 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results posted by the Darke County Board of Elections.

Whitaker received 28.88 percent of the vote, while Schmidt and Brown received 25.64 and 25.51 percent, respectively.
