Hamilton’s mayoral race may be contested this November.
Incumbent Pat Moeller could possibly face challenger Ramon Batista, who filed petitions Thursday for the race.
Batista’s petitions must be certified by the Butler County Board of Elections, which will meet Tuesday. If the petitions are certified, then there will be a race for mayor.

One name that will not appear on November’s ballot is incumbent Councilman Rob Wile, who was elected in 2009 and re-elected in 2013. Wile was the top vote-getter in his two elections, but did not pull petitions to seek a possible third term.
The slate of candidates for Hamilton Council includes:
- Incumbent Councilman Robert M. Brown
- Incumbent Councilman Timothy F. Naab
- ShaQuila Mathews
- Shawna Noble
- Delbert Price
- Michael V. Ryan
