It took about 12 paragraphs, more than half way through the article, to identify the mayor as a democrat. I’m shocked and surprised.

Tom Schlachter, one of the backers of the recall committee Take Back Toledo, said the goal of the recall drive is to prevent Mr. Finkbeiner from being elected again - even though the mayor can legally run for and win a new four-year term regardless of the recall outcome.

I don’t know if the group used paid petition circulators or not (they almost all do) but it seems like waste of money.

The money may have been better spent on campaigning for a opponent of Finkbeiners’s.

The only advantage to this is that perhaps you might get some help from Democrats in ousting Finkbeiner.

Regardless of recalling Finkbeiner or not it is unlikely that Toledo will elect a Republican.

If electing a Republican is the goal a better strategy may have been allowing Finkbeiner to remain in office and lend support to a rival.

Even though he would not be able to run again, only three months are left on the term.

Who is the candidate these people WILL support?

IMHO It seems a waste of effort more towards “we know who we don’t like” than “we know who we like.:

This is the guy who did not allow a National Guard unit to train in Toledo because they may scare people.
