Mayoral candidates active at Labor Day parade

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Some mayoral candidates took advantage of Labor Day events in Toledo, using them as part of their final campaign push.

The primary election is coming up, so candidates were on the streets during the Labor Day parade to talk to people and be seen.

"I want to talk to as many voters as I possibly can," said Joe McNamara. "I think the one-on-one conversations that I have with people to hear what Toledoans are concerned with, and so they can hear what my plans are for the future of Toledo."

The parade brought hundreds of people to the downtown area.

"We signed up so many volunteers at the parade today," said Anita Lopez. "Individuals excited that we're keeping a positive campaign."

But their work won't end when the events do.

"We'll hit the trail tomorrow, and we'll be door-to-door," said Mike Collins.

Mayor Mike Bell's secretary says he has not attended the parade in years. She says he wasn't invited, and he wanted to respect the feelings of some union workers.
