The Kansas City Shuffle

CF has announced that he will not be running for re-election, and, that's fantastic news. I smell things a foul in Toledo anyway. That was way too easy. CF could have made things very interesting by filing his petition to run and leverage a deal with one of the other candidates, but that's not going to happen that way. I believe that a deal has already been made. It is rumored that some of CF's closest compadres have been working with the Bell campaign for several weeks and you must wonder why it is rumored that CF's closest political allies and money barons are reorganizinng and running the Bell campaign. This didn't ocurr a few days ago, its been going on for over a month. If Bell becomes mayor, is CF going to be the City's new Economic Development Director, a special consultant, a Larry Dillin employee? Just because CF isn't running for re-election, we can't relax and say we have seen the last of him. This announcement was nothing more than the Kansas City Shuffle. Make everybody look left and CF is going to go right. If there is a scam I hope us voters won't fall for it.

No votes yet

Wouldn't be surprised if he found a spot on the Port Authority.
Bell would be foolish to align himself with CF. CF’s approval in Toledo is minimal not to mentions he’s been recalled.

Carty at the Port Authority? That would be the kiss of death for the whole region. Is anyone stupid enough to put him there?


He was already on the Port Authority board once.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

he was elected to be mayor of Toledo 3 times.
