Carty Vs Marines

What a sad story

Failure of the Toledo area Media

I was born and raised in Toledo. I decided to do something worth while once I graduated College. I thought it would be important to save our veterans history in the area. Now 50 interviews later I feel we are beginning to turn out a good product of education for future generations.

We interviewed 18 veterans at West Park Place senior living center in Toledo, and had a large presentation with a video to show the veterans and their families. We figured Memorial Day weekend would be a wonderful time to honor our veterans, and all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Is the current administration in Toledo, too damaged to continue?

With the most recent uproar about the Marines and the passion of the Mayor and the suspension of a staff member, administration members not sure of this or that and communication errors facing us, the question, I pose,

Is the administration able to restore confidence and guide us through the difficult times we face.

Semper Fi Act of 2008

Here's an email I recieved today concerning new legislation for 2008. It's quite interesting to see that Toledo has been named and this pettition is going to the 3 elected to national office.
The Email:
Dear Chad,

Actions have consequences.

This is the strong message we must send liberal politicians in Berkeley, California, and Toledo, Ohio.

If you did not already listen to it today, WSPD had some interesting interviews today.

Please listen:

The first two minutes are especially interesting. If this doesn't confirm that the man has a mental problem, I don't know what does:

Toledo council resolution apologizes to Marines

"Toledo City Council Tuesday afternoon adopted by
a 12-0 vote a resolution apologizing to the 200 members of Company A,
1st Battalion, 24 Marines for their treatment last week in the city and
thanking them for their service to the nation."

The Marine Miscommunication

I live downtown. Friday afternoon an elderly woman who lives in my building was extremely scared because she believed a "terrorist incident" occurred a few blocks away. As the panic quickly spread through the building, I investigated and found out that it was simply a military exercise being set-up but I hadn’t heard anything about it either. Not one thing.

Mayor Finkbeiner tells the Marines to leave Toledo - Does not want them to learn the skills to save their lives - updated

Finkbeiner, apparently only speaking for himself, said that Marines are not welcome in Toledo. Well I welcome Marines in Toledo to train and learn skills that will save their lives. Apparently Carty does not think they should practice the skills they need to save their lives here.

Contact your City Council rep

And ask that something be done about Carty's lastest stunt of kicking the Marines out of downtown. They've gotta be able to do something. I also suggest flooding Carty's inbox with e-mails. Starting Monday morning, call his office too. This is a shameful thing that happened!
