My View By Jack Ford
Last Sunday, Lee Conklin used my column in The Truth to raise the name of Councilman Mike Ashford in the mayoral race. Then, Conklin and Troy Neff commented on how many committee meetings Ashford has missed on City Council. Rubbish.

When I was a council member and in the legislature, I often had conflicting appointments. So I would pick which meeting was the more important.
Both Neff and Conklin also chastised Ashford for not returning phone calls. Mike, pick up the phone and return the calls. Now, Tom Terrific, if you are reading this, you are thinking “hey, Ford doesn’t return my calls.” That’s right. I do not trust you. [more at thetruthtoledo.com]
