What twelve City Council Candidates do you think will advance to the General Election?

According to NBC 24 here is the list of those who made the deadline to turn in their petitions:

Official Council-at-Large candidate list:

John Adams
Terry Biel
Joe Carter
Mark W Clark
Phillip Copeland
Jeff Cromwell
Tyrone Daniels
Rob Ludeman
Patricia Lyons
Adam J Martinez
Joe McNamara
Kevin Milliken
George Sarantou
Hans G. Schnapp
Terry Shankland
Constantine P. Stamos
Steven C. Steel
Steven L. Sulewski
Polly Taylor-Gerken
William J. Terry
Paul Tetuan
Jeremiah VanBuren
Stephen Ward
David (Prez) Washington
Michael R. Watson

Note: Not all the names listed have been certified on the ballot yet. But for the sake of this poll please list the 12 candidates who you think will advance.

No votes yet

will probably make it on name recognition alone :
Phillip Copeland
Tyrone Daniels
Joe McNamara
George Sarantou
Steven C. Steel

Then all 5 Teamwork Toledo candidates:
John Adams
Tyrone Daniels
Kevin Milliken
Michael R. Watson
Patricia Lyons

Then because of his previous stint on council:
Rob Ludeman

and because she is the only other woman (with name recognition to boot):
Polly Taylor-Gerken

but more likely...
it will be the twelve who the Blade endorses.

You have Tyrone Daniels listed twice; once as an incumbent. Those running for re-election are McNamara, Copeland, and Sarantou. Steel is a recent appointment, technically an incumbent, but is running for City Council for the first time.

IMHO...the larger the field of candidates, the greater the influence of all large endorsing entities. That is especially true if there is a low voter turnout. With so many choices for City Council and Mayor, and with so much at stake, can't we get more eligible voters, registered voters, to become motivated and to actually vote?

Scratch Ty from the incumbent and add either David Washington or Stephen Ward

I think it is going to be interesting, but my guess would be:

Steve Steel
George Sarantou
Phil Copeland
Rob Ludeman
Kevin Milliken
Stephen Ward
Polly Taylor-Gerken
Adam Martinez
Joe McNamara
Terry Biel
Patricia Lyons
Mark Clark

One name always jumps out at me....Terry Shankland, the ice cream man, with his stupid hat. "GOOD MORNING, BOYS AND GIRLS!" was always how he would start an interview on tv or radio-proving how serious he was in his running for the position. A TOTAL IDIOT who is a perennial candidate for some /any local office, and whose only purpose on the ballot , other than ego, is to be a stalking horse and take votes away from any possible serious challengers to the incumbents/good old boys. &*^#! MORON!!
