Williams is a Dayton native who served on the Dayton School Board and Dayton City Commission. An executive with KeyBank, Williams abruptly resigned his seat on the city commission in February 2018, shortly after winning election in November 2017.

Williams said his new job as KeyBank Dayton market president required a lot of travel and time, and he felt he could not effectively keep up with his commission work.

Darryl Fairchild was elected to fill Williams’ seat.

Williams was elected to five terms and was the second longest serving member in commission history.
