Pounds: Candidate forumWritten by Tom Pounds | President / Publisher | email@example.com
There is less than a month before the Sept. 9 primary to determine which two people will face each other in the November race for Toledo mayor. Toledo Free Press and WNWO are teaming to present an opportunity for voters to access the candidates and present questions in person.
The Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition (NWOCC) is hosting a mayoral candidate forum from 6-8 p.m. Aug. 26 at the Toledo-Lucas County Main Library’s McMaster Family Center, 325 N. Michigan St. The evening will be moderated by Toledo Free Press Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller and WNWO News Director Jim Blue.
The forum will feature all seven candidates on the ballot — Mayor Mike Bell, Councilman D. Michael Collins, Opal Covey, Alan Cox, Michael Konwinski, County Auditor Anita Lopez and Councilman Joe McNamara — giving them each a chance to outline their platforms for the audience and then take questions from the audience.
This is an opportunity for voters to speak directly to the candidates and seek answers to their questions about running the city. More information may be found at www.nwocc2.eventbrite.com.
City Council Candidate Night
NWOCC is also hosting a Toledo City Council Candidate Night moderated by Fred LeFebvre of 1370 WSPD, from 6-9 p.m. Aug. 29 at Colonial Banquet & Event Center, 140 New Towne Square Drive.
A number of candidates have not responded to the NWOCC’s invitation to attend. Shaun Enright, Jack Ford, Joshua Fowler, James Martin, and Alfonso Narvaez, please contact me via email and I will connect you with the event organizers.
Thomas F. Pounds is president and publisher of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
