Mayor says Toledo count back over 300,000

"Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner yesterday said the city - with the help of a data analysis firm based in Washington - identified enough people uncounted by the U.S. Census Bureau to boost the population back over the 300,000 mark.

"During the city's preparation for the 2010 census, the staff of the plan commission identified over 1,400 addresses previously not recorded on the U.S. Census Bureau's current address list," Mr. Finkbeiner said. "That undercount could have a significant impact on federal funding."

The uncounted 1,400 addresses were discovered through new construction permits. That translates into about 4,000 people, the mayor said."

Watching Czarty desperately massage the numbers is about as pathetic as anything I've seen recently. This guy will be turning over rocks, next. Only a true retard counts EMPTY CONDOS and thinks they translate into population.

Those who have some experience with creative accounting know you can make numbers say anything you want. Sometimes, its a matter of stating a number and then let the world prove you wrong. There are 3,0378,098 sparrows in the State of Ohio. Can anyone prove otherwise?

you, umm...misplaced a comma.

that numeric display is illogical.

:)

The bigger Carty wants to make Toledo, the bigger the exodus becomes.

Toledo's population dips to an estimated 295,029

Cleveland on the other hand suffered the largest numerical decline in the nation from 2006 to 2007, losing 5,067 people.

Toledo and Cleveland also were among the biggest losers in the nation of population over the last seven years, according to the census estimates.

Toledo was the eighth biggest loser, declining by 6 percent from 313,782 in 2000 to 295,029 in 2007.

Cleveland was the second biggest loser over the last seven years - shedding 8.3 percent of its population, or 39,430 people, to reach the 2007 estimate of 438,042.

Is it too late to still blame Sanders? lol

Still keeps you under 300,000 guys, but keep adding stuff, like vacationers and hobos, you'll get there!
