Rick Disher

He was simply saying it is a wake up call like 911 . Not that it was as like 911. Obviously he didn't mean the water crisis was as bad as 3000 live lost at the WTC . If you think he was making a comparison like that your an idiot .


You are right on the mark. When left to his own (lack of) thought this is what you get.
Personally, I believe he is still surprised that he is the mayor.
Unfortunately, he replaced a man that stood strong on his own and stood strong for the citizens of Toledo. This mayor was elected with someone else providing the script.

Perrysburg Firefighters

If you mother is in Perrysburg and ever needs anything let us know and we will ensure she gets the help she may need. Or anyone else having an elderly relative in Perrysburg.
We are Perrysburg Professional Firefighters IAFF L3331, not to be confused with the City of Perrysburg. Go to our webpage for contact info perrysburgfirefighters.com and contact the president for any help anyone home-bound ever needs


At this rate the mayor will soon say we should move the deaf to the airport.


Thank you!! I thought the same thing when treading the mayor's remarks. It was not a great analogy.

About Suzette Hackney

I'm Suzette Hackney, an editorial writer and columnist for The Blade. I was born and raised in Toledo, thus the homegirl moniker.

This blog will explore hot topics about the Toledo region and beyond. I tend to gravitate toward politics, pop culture, and race, as well as crime, social services, education, and the plight of the poor. I will mix reporting with observations, punditry, and commentary. I love to tell stories. Sometimes I can even be witty, and maybe a bit snarky.

Send ideas my way. I want to explore my hometown with you, and to tell the stories that represent us all.
