Toledo voters will decide in November if Mayor Carty Finkbeiner should be recalled from office, according to Lucas County Board of Elections Chairman Patrick Kriner.
Members of the board decided Tuesday morning that the language on the petitions circulated by Take Back Toledo was legal and the signatures were valid, Kriner told the Free Press.
The mayor’s lawyer had argued that the petitions did not include a sentence warning signers that election falsification is a fifth-degree felony. Kriner said the BOE determined that the city charter did not require this sentence.
