Meet the City Recorder -Patti Ringnalda
Patty Ringnalda

The Dayton City Recorder is the local official who administers democratic processes such as elections and access to city records, ensuring transparency to the public. The Recorder acts as a compliance officer for federal, state and local statutes, including Oregon Public Meetings Law, Oregon Public Records Law, Oregon Ethics Laws, and Oregon and local elections laws. The City Recorder provides support to the City Council and other commissions and committees of the City.

Patty Ringnalda, who has worked for the City of Dayton for over twenty years, became the City Recorder in January, 2019.

In addition to her duties detailed above, Patty is the Court Clerk for Dayton. 

Patty has lived in Dayton for 18 years and went to McMinnville High School and Chemeketa Community College. She loves the Dayton community and credits her husband of 30 years, Larry, with giving her the confidence and encouragement to apply for her current position. If she were to win the lottery, Patty would put curbs and sidewalks in all of Dayton and donate a new City Hall and Library to the town!
