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 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.

Booing of Ben worth the price of admission

According to the Independent Collegian writer, this was one of the highlights of the game. This was first reported here.

From the crowd’s excitement when the players entered through a tunnel spouting streams of blue and yellow fire, to the throwing of fish on to the ice after a Toledo goal, and even from the reigning of “boos” on to Mayoral Candidate Ben Konop before the game, the environment is in itself worth the price of admission.

The Toledo Free Press Endorses Mayoral Candidate Mike Bell.

There is a world of difference between leading through intimidation and leading through inspiration. Mike Bell is the best of a great field of candidates because he understands that difference.

Bell literally put his life on the line for Toledo, and he has parlayed the respect and experience he earned into a career that took him to Columbus as the state’s fire marshal. He is a proven leader with experience at the top of city government, and no one else has that the inside view.

Mayoral candidate Ben Konop can be commended for saying he chooses to take the high ground and not respond to the abuse being dished out by WSPD Radio. The issue that really should be looked at has less to do with Mr. Konop than the cynical and condescending commentary masquerading as news that is so frequently heard on WSPD.

Konop's Wikipedia page protected from the truth

Lucas County Commissioner and Mayoral candidate Ben Konop, who by running for mayor is warning us he is a liar, has his Wikipedia page protected from any truth. With his embarrassing video all over the internet, CNN, Comedy Central, and MSNBC, one would hope that a quick visit to Konop's Wiki page would provide some insight. The man has demonstrated a lack of character by breaking pledges. ( )

However, the Controversies page has been removed more than once by user "BKonop." The man is a LC Commissioner, running for Mayor, and is editing his Wikipedia page - talk about qualified.
