Webb, Brodie square off in Lucas County Treasurer race

By  | 

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Former Toledo councilwoman Lindsay Webb was appointed earlier this year but not without some controversy.

Now she's running for election against Republican Lori Brodie.

Back in January, Democrats chose Webb to fill the last year of Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz's term.

But after being sworn in, Webb dropped out because she could not get a surety bond due to her bad personal credit.

Within days, she got a bond costing taxpayers an extra $9,150 over what Kapszukiewicz was charged.

Now, it's 10-months later and Webb is running for election and her financial competence is an issue as she squares off against a challenge with financial experience.

The winner will serve the final two years of the original Kapszukiewicz term. A full four-year term will be up for vote in 2020.
