Candidates hit Campaign Trail for Lucas County Sheriff

By La Prensa Staff


TOLEDO: The list of those seeking to become the 46th Lucas County, Ohio sheriff is the longest and most diverse on the ballot March 17th for Lucas County residents. There will be five Democratic candidates vying for the party nomination during the March primary, including a lone Republican.


Toledo city councilman Gary Johnson touts his business and public service experience as he hopes to become the Democratic nominee. But he will face challenges from current Oregon police chief Mike Navarre, 64, who spent 34 years previously with the Toledo Police Dept., the final 13 years as its police chief. Other Democratic hopefuls include Lucas Co. Sheriff’s Lt. Ron Collins II, and retired Lucas Co. Sheriff’s official Maurice Morris.


Lt. Collins II hosted a meet-and-greet fundraiser on Jan. 8, at Table 44 restaurant in downtown Toledo and was the first to post campaign signs—large green signs visible right after the November general election.


Waterville Township trustee Brett Warner will be the lone Republican running for sheriff during the March primary. Warner is the community affairs director at the sheriff’s office and oversees the DARE program.


Earl Mack will run as an independent candidate on the November ballot. Earl Mack is a retired state liquor control agent and Ohio Homeland Security deputy director, who has spent his recent years as president of the Toledo Buffalo Soldiers.


The end result will be a three-candidate field for the November election.
