FILE - In this Aug. 6, 2019 file photo, Dayton, Ohio, Mayor Nan Whaley speaks to members of the media outside Ned Peppers bar in the Oregon District after a mass shooting that occurred early Sunday morning in Dayton.

Her end-of-the-year reflections include searing memories of the natural disaster and attack as she looks ahead to a year dedicated to “healing and transformation.” (AP Photo/John Minchillo)
