Mayoral candidate Anita Lopez canceled an appearance at a meet and greet with voters this week. Lopez, the current Lucas County Auditor, was the scheduled guest at the Ottawa Tavern’s weekly Political Parties series, but was unable to attend her appearance on July 9.
According to Ottawa Tavern owner Tom Baird, Lopez said she had a last-minute scheduling conflict.
“She had a family commitment come up,” Baird said. “It was nothing against what we were doing. I understand completely.”
Lopez has rescheduled with the Ottawa Tavern and will be the featured candidate on Aug. 27.
The other scheduled guests include Councilman D. Michael Collins (July 16), Alan Cox (July 23), Mayor Mike Bell (July 30), Opal Covey (Aug. 6) and Councilman Joe McNamara (Aug. 13).
The sessions are an “informal meet and greet” featuring a different declared mayoral candidate each week. The sessions will be held 7-9 p.m. Tuesdays, followed by food and entertainment.
Toledo Free Press and 1370 WSPD are media sponsors for the event.
