Tricia Lyons campaign resignation statement

I am writing to inform you of my intention to withdraw from the
Toledo City Council at-large race.

While I understand that it will be difficult to remove my name from
already printed ballots, if I should make it through the general
election, I will be unable to serve.

Effectively serving citizens is a very important role for all elected
officials, but given unforeseen changes in my personal life and my own
business taking off, at this time I won't have the time or the
commitment to effectively serve Toledo.

I am humbled that nearly 6,000 people in the city of Toledo came out
to support me in the primary. My voice is one of true conservatism and
it was wonderful to see so many that agreed with me. While that was
not enough to get more conservative candidates like me in the top 12,
it is refreshing and humbling to have the support of those who chose

In order for Toledo and Northwest Ohio to turn around, we need more
elected officials in office who want to cut regulations, cut taxes and
make this a friendlier place to live and work. I know when I vote on
November 3, I will be looking for candidates who support the same
principles as myself. I will still remain active and at which time
that my business and life allows, I may still take up the causes again
that got me started down this road.

Best wishes, Tricia Lyons

this means Teamwork Toledo is effectively dead. With only one candidate still on the ballot that's hard to classify as a "team".

I am sadden about Tricia's decision to withdraw but understand her feelings about not being able to dedicate herself 100% to a position which requires that type of commitment. Not short-changing her perspective constituents speaks volumes of her integrity.

I thought she was a housewife.

housewife? A wife married to a house? Haven't heard that expression in years. :)

this is too bad. I hope she will be back some day
