Toledo, OH – The Primary Election results are in, and we now know who is advancing to the General Election.

Marge Brown comes in a distant 2nd. lol

Well it looks like the Mayor of Oregon Marge Brown is on her way out. Good. Her showing in yesterdays election shows that she just may be out of here. She came in a very distant 2nd. to Mike Seferian. Go Mike.

November 3rd. Vote for Mike Seferian.

Sorry Marge. Boo Whooo !!! Don't go away mad. Just go away.

As Toledo City Councilman George Sarantou told Toledo Free Press Sept. 5, “We are in a fiscal emergency, and we would like permission from voters to use Capital Improvement Funds (CIP) for safety.”

We believe Toledo voters should give council that permission by voting “yes” on Issue 1 on Sept. 15.

We maintain great respect for councilman Tom Waniewski and councilwoman Lindsay Webb in their efforts to reduce government through passage of Issue 2, but we disagree with their stance.


On the Sept. 15 ballot, voters will choose six of 23 candidates for Toledo City Council. The top 12 vote getters will move on to November’s ballot. If Issue 2 passes, that number will be reduced to six moving on to November’s ballot.

Some candidates declare a party; some do not. Toledo’s municipal elections are non-partisan; on the ballot, there will be no party affiliation noted.

The city is on schedule to migrate to automated trash pick up by the end of 2009/beginning of 2010. However, I should know more about what areas of town will be implemented first. The schedule is being worked on and reviewed by the administration. Look for news to come out quite possibly in this month, I'm told.
