Ten years before Carty Finkbeiner plastered Toledo with signs saying "Carty Gets the Job Done" he was plastering Toledo with signs saying, "Carty Gets Results."
Here's one of his news releases from the 2005 mayoral campaign against incumbent Mayor Jack Ford.
After Finkbeiner's term in office (2006-2009), there still were no "bricks laid" in the Marina District, except f0r things paid for - and still being paid for - by taxpayers. Those are the "marine passenger terminal" (now the Maritime Museum of the Great Lakes) and Riverside Drive - the road to nowhere. Starting this year, the city is paying off the Riverside Drive construction at a rate of $462,201 a year.
(Side note: Another building that was constructed by the taxpayers with hopes of sparking commercial activity now used as a museum: Portside - Imagination Station.).
