East Toledo businessman throws hat into election
East Toledo businessman Dan Steingraber, a Republican, stood inside the lobby
of the Weber Block Wednesday morning to make official his candidacy for Lucas County commissioner.
“This is an important day for me and my family, as you are well aware. This was not an easy decision for me to make,” Steingraber said with laryngitis in his voice while surrounded by over 20 supporters.
“These folks are here today because they know me. They know what I stand for and they know I am not afraid to stand up for what I believe,” Steingraber continued. “They know that I have not only encouraged, but made a commitment to talk the conservative talk and walk the conservative walk.
“Lucas County has suffered from a lack of conservative leadership for too long. It’s time for us, conservatives, to lead and engineer a conservative path to economic development and jobs and increase employment through the application of solid economic and conservative principals,” Steingraber continued.
Steingraber, who lives on Grand Bay Drive, Oregon, joins Republican candidates Pam S. Hanley of Sylvania, George Sarantou of Toledo, and Andy Glenn of Holland in seeking to represent their party during the general election Nov. 2. The primary is slated for May 4.
An article in the March 1 Metro edition of The Press incorrectly stated that Dr. Leah Dorman, a former veterinarian with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, was an appointee to the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board.
She hasn’t been appointed to the board. She will discuss State Issue 2, which established the board, at the Ottawa County Agriculture Community Breakfast on March 26 in Oak Harbor.
