Pete Gerken raises taxes again - to support pet LCIC

Only Pete Gerken and Tina Skeldon Wozniak Jingle Heimer Schmidt et al. can somehow think that taking money out of the working class' pockets when they sell a house can be a plus. Here's hoping that their name will be next to the fee when you go to closing so everyone knows who to thank. With the sorry state this area is in, especially in housing stock, this is one of the most dumbest decisions I have seen although it is not a surprise.

Intermodal freight transportation is exploding around the country and Northwest Ohio is well-placed and well-equipped to handle cargo for the tri-state area. However, we need to be smart about how we encourage development around resources like Toledo Express.

Lucas County Commissioner's

I was reading in the Toledo Free Press today an article Ben Konop wrote in regards to his proposal for transferring funds from the corrupt LCIC to the University of Toledo, and how this plan was thwarted by the usual suspects, Pete Gerken and Tina Skeldon-Wozniak. My first thought was, when are these goons going to be voted out of office.

More Stellar Economic Development

The doors are closing on 2 more Downtown businesses: Ken's Flowers and Diva's Restaurant. Blaming the economy and the lack of patronage, these two businesses are shutting down and turning off the lights. Diva's has been in business for 6 years and Ken's has been there for years. Ken's has already closed and Diva's is closing March 1st. In like a lion I guess.
