Blatant Right Wing Radio Promotion- Mayor Bell On 1370 WSPD Tuesday 7:30

Tuesday morning at 7:30a Mike Bell will be on the show to talk about the budget turned over to City Council this afternoon. 'Nuff said.

What is Phil Copeland up to Now?

I don't read the Blah. I keep hearing that Phil Copeland(d.-Toledo)has tried getting paid for meetings he hasn't attended, or something along those lines. Maybe someone can tell me the gist of some comments he recently made about the subject, as I cannot begin to understand what he said on several clips being played on the radio and TV. I know he rarely makes comments on the air, and after hearing him speak, incoherently, about this issue-I can certainly understand why.

Less than a month in office and Mike Bell wants a tax hike

I'm sorry Toledo, but Mike Bell made his bones as a democrat. I don't know why he didn't choose to run as a democrat, but I never believed that he wouldn't govern as one. Today he asked those of you left in the city who actually pay income taxes to pay more. From 2.25% to 2.5%. But it's only "temporary".

Mike Craig fundraiser Thursday nite 12/10

Mike announced his fundraiser dinner at our Arlingtion neighborhood group tonite. I asked him why he was raising funds , he said it is political , that there is discretion on how to give these funds out . He said for example, he could make a donation to our neighborhood group. I don't think I like the idea , tho I may attend . Mike is approachable , he helps our neighborhood. He said he holds two fundraisers per year. He said other council members will be there.

Peterson Ditch Cleaning
Toledo City Council at its last meeting gave the go ahead to accept state EPA money ($1.5 million) and combine it with local storm fund dollars (another $1.5 million) to clean up Peterson Ditch. The city will begin cleaning 400 feet of open ditch and installing more than 10,000 feet of pipe in an area of west Toledo in 2010. The work is expected to have a major impact on flooding in the area.

Steve Steel:"YOU LIE"

Back in September while giving a speech to Congress concerning Health Care, President Barack Obama was heckled by Senator Joe Wilson. Senator Wilson yelled out to the president, "you lie."
Well, last week after reading Steve Steel's Guest Column in the Sojourner's Truth newspaper, I shouted out to Steve Steel, "you lie." Well, this week I was joined by Jack Ford, Toledo Public School Board member.

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: Is Now Covering the Toledo City Council Race!, a growing Toledo-based informational and political website, is now covering the 2009 Toledo City Council race. sends questions to all of the candidates, and then posts their responses in a user-friendly side-by-side format.

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

Oust Webb, take back Point Place

As a former Point Place resident, I watched with amusement as the "Take Back Toledo" campaign worked to get a recall petition on the ballet to oust Carty Finkbeiner as mayor of Toledo. I think it's time for the residents of Point Place to start a new recall campaign to "Take Back Point Place," and oust Lindsay Webb.

Board of Elections - Problems With Election Ballots!

The Toledo Blade is reporting:

The Lucas County Board of Elections has 1,092 ballots that could be added to last week's Toledo primary election count, putting the final results for Toledo City Council in doubt.

The additional ballots include 166 absentee ballots accidentally left uncounted last Tuesday, Director Linda Howe said Monday.

She said two employees, a Republican and a Democrat, have received reprimands in their files and have come up with procedures to avoid a recurrence of the neglected ballots.
