With the layoff of dozens of police officers the families in Toledo will have to step up their roles to guide our children and reinforce positive family values. We cannot afford to have our next group of elected government officials make a mockey of Toledo's social and financial relevance. At present, Toledo's government is an object of humorous andtidotes at bars and cocktails parties across the nation.

Ive asked this question time and time again, and NOBODY has ever answered it in a way that made any sense.
What role do "At Large" councilmen perform??
I was told that they were to ensure that everyone was represented equally...
If you are the one saying that, then please elaborate.

Has anyone noticed all the Arson fires through out the city? Every night a vacant house goes up in flames. I find this just a little curious, especially at a time when safety forces could be reduced. I would be curious to know if last year at this time how many vacant house fires there have been. Very interesting........
