On Wednesday, Democrat Anita Lopez filed her petitions
for this year's Toledo mayoral election.
Lopez, currently the Lucas County Auditor, says the
current mayor, Mike Bell, is out of touch with Toledoans who are struggling.
Lopez says if elected, her three main points of focus
will be improving the local economy, safer neighborhoods, and having city
government more in touch with the people it serves.
"We're going to be a responsive government. We're going
to be in touch with the struggles of Toledoans and we're going to be responsive
to that," she said. "I believe in employees answering phone calls."
While Lopez did not offer specifics about how she'll
achieve those goals, she says over the next several weeks she will release
details of specific proposals she'll push if elected this year.
Mayor Bell plans to file his petitions on Thursday.
Friday is the filing deadline for mayoral candidates and those running in this
year's at-large council race.
