J.P.L.

to?

this is a trick question, right ?

This is a trick question. That is why I tagged it "Fake News". I don't know of anyone who is running for school board with a situation like this, but I do know of someone who is running for mayor of Toledo who has a legal Toledo address, but lives or is perceived to live in Sylvania. I own several properties in Toledo, but because of where I live in Toledo, there are political offices I am not allowed to run for those offices, nor can I vote for anyone running for certain offices. Yes, I am referring to Moody. I have no problem with Moody, but I'm not going to manipulate the rules. I own two properties near downtown Toledo, but I live in an area that is inside the Toledo Corporation limit, but is serviced by Sylvania Schools. I can't run for either school board because I live in Toledo, but I'm serviced by Sylvania schools.

You've brought this up before and Ive asked you this before and you refuse to answer, so I'll keep at it like you do.

If a man is right for the position and can lead the city out of the problems that we currently face, and is willing to move to do it - what is the problem?

you say you've got no problem with Moody, but your words dont back that up.

If you are an "qualified elector" in the Sylvania City School District, you can run for that school board. It doesn't matter that your live in the City of Toledo.

You can also run for Mayor of Toledo or Toledo City Council.

Concern about where a person has lived part of her/his life, especially if that person has lived in the Toledo area, is so typical Toledo! Let's not evaluate someone based upon their credentials or ideas! Let's condemn that person because (s)he moved into Toledo to run for public office! I do NOT support Moody for Mayor, but he has a right to run for the office. I grew up in Toledo. I have lived WAY OUT in Sylvania for 35 years. I suppose in many eyes, that means I no longer care about my home town, and I don't know the issues because I live so far away from them, even though I work in Toledo! If I wanted to move into Toledo to run for public office, would my years in Sylvania disqualify me?

Sylvania isn't much better. Some people still think I'm a carperbagger out here...after 35 years! We, in the Toledo area have GOT to get over this small town attitude and parochialism! That's one main factor in holding this area back. Instead of working together to improve the economy of the entire region, we fight over which political entity can attract one of the few corporations that is still in the area into our little enclave. Who cares about the other nearby communities?

One of the top priorities of Jack Ford when he was Toledo's mayor was to nurture trust among the Toledo area political entities. But, Jack wasn't exciting enough for the majority of Toledoans. Good luck on this year's pick!

Sometimes being in Toledo is like being in High School, but never graduating,,,

It is my understanding that Moody established a Toledo address for the sole purpose of running for mayor. If he had moved himself and his family inside the Toledo city limits prior to declaring his bid for mayor, there would be no discussion.

what is the difference one way or another if the man is qualified?

Frankly, as far as Im concerned - if he improves the quality of my life, I could care less if he didnt relocate till the day before he's inaugurated.

Dale's spot on about Toledo needing to pull it's collective head out of the sand if it's to move ahead, and this is just the kind of petty BS crap that they need to get past. It has no bearing on the man's qualifications or what he brings to the table.

Didn't Knopp once establish an address just to run for Congress?

And Mrs. Clinton when she bacame a U.S. Senator from New York?

It doesn't matter to me what the others you have mentioned have done. We are talking about an immediate issue that is contrary to the rules. Just because others have done it doesn't mean it's in compliance with the rules.

Joe

Either site the rules you state were broken, or stop your smear campaign.

where are the rules you're talking about?

What rules were broken?

This is not a smear campaign. Moody has stated that if he wins the mayoral race he will move his family inside the city limits. If he is passionate about Toledo, move his wife and kids now. I suspectif Moody wins the election he will then claim that employees of the City of Toledo don't have to live inside the Toledo City limits. The rules are you have to be a resident to run for office in Toledo. Moody is not a resident.

He qualifies for residency.

My three year old nephew suspects the Easter bunny is real. Just because he suspects it, doesnt mean it's real.
