Marines issue might affect Toledo levy

"City services such as police and fire protection
would suffer significantly if voters defeat the 0.75 percent income tax
on the March 4 ballot, Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner and other city
leaders said during a rally yesterday for the levy."

 

"Addressing nearly 300 city employees, the mayor hinted that the
controversy spawned last week when he ordered a company of
Michigan-based Marines out of downtown could have an impact at the
polls next month. He said it has been "a week that saw a great deal of
attention to this city, to me personally, and the Marines Corps."

"
Mr. Finkbeiner said the city's employees need to encourage support of the tax renewal.
"We really do have it all in Toledo, Ohio," he said. "We need to
protect it … If we do our jobs between now and March 4th, we have a
chance."
