Kevin Milliken

Milliken to advocate for more police

Independent Toledo City Council candidate Kevin Milliken will hold a press conference at 3:30 pm TODAY, Nov. 1, 2009 outside One Government Center.

Kevin will discuss a different way he'll encourage Toledo city government to budget taxpayer dollars to ensure there are TWO police classes in 2010 to replace retiring officers and maintain an adequate safety force, as well as a new fire class to help solve the expensive fire dept. overtime situation.

Kevin Milliken's Trick Or Vote 2009

Independent Toledo City Council candidate Kevin Milliken will be campaigning during trick or treat hours tonight, 6-8 pm in Point Place, during what's being called Trick or Vote 2009.

Kevin will be passing out candy to parents/voters and talking to them about how the city government ghouls and goblins, disguised as professional politicians are tricking them as taxpayers with big spending and budget deficits. Right after the full moon near election day, they'll turn back into the vampires who suck the lifeblood from our community with higher taxes and foolish spending.

Milliken on region's job losses and the economy

Good afternoon. Thanks for coming.

It's no secret Toledo's job situation is terrible at best, devastating at worst.

Families are being forced to make critical decisions in their household budgets. Social services and non-profits are being stretched to the limit. Struggle and survival are becoming the words of the day.

Toledo dropped to 99th out of 100 cities surveyed in the latest Bizjournals and Portfolio-dot-com job analysis.

In sheer numbers alone, the job losses in our community are simply devastating. Here are the facts:

Toledo Police Situation - Remarks by Kevin Milliken

Good afternoon. Thanks for coming.

The November election in Toledo is shaping up to be one of the most important in our city's history.
I am hoping this becomes a campaign of ideas, issues, and ideology-- not slogans, symbols, and sound bites.

Tops among the issues facing our community-- and there are many-- is public safety.
Toledo's budget problems have dropped our police force below 600. That is simply unacceptable.
There are 15 brave men and women still laid off. Nearly two dozen more retirees have not been replaced.

The site is designed to be another means for Milliken to interact with voters and taxpayers, as he conducts door-to-door campaigning over the final six weeks before the Sept. 15 primary election.

TFP: where's the editorial oversight?

This was sent to Michael Miller, editor of the Toledo Free Press for his irresponsible oversight of the story about Kevin Milliken's divorce records. This orginal post was removed from the facebook by Miller as well as from the comments posts on the orginal Free Press story. I guess you can comment, unless you call the editor's oversight into question. Feel free to forward with a SHAME ON MICHAEL MILLER tag!!
