Councilman to answer your questions
Mike Craig (D), Toledo councilman for East Toledo and parts of South Toledo, will speak to The East Toledo Club Thursday, October 20 at the club’s noon luncheon to be held next to Michael’s Café located in the Weber Block at Front and Main.
Craig will field questions from the audience regarding the hot issues facing the community—development of the Marina District by Chinese investors, dilapidated housing, vacant homes and the impact of the new Hollywood Casino.
The public is invited.
Shaun Enright, the other Democratic candidate who beat Craig in the primary, was contacted to participate in the event. He did not respond to numerous requests to do so.
