Protests hearing concerning two judgeship petitions, re-scheduled to August 15 at 3:00PM
City prosecutor Lourdes Santiago may not have any opposition in her quest for Toledo Municipal Court judge in this November’s election if the Democrats have their way—its party chair, Jack Wilson, protested the petitions filed by candidate judge Lynn Schaefer, which may be shy of the 1,000 needed.
Wilson also filed a protest on the petitions filed by Robert Christiansen, a former judge of both the Lucas County and city benches.
Mr. Wilson’s protests seek to disqualify 51 signatures on petitions for Judge Christiansen and 21 for Judge Schaefer, because many of the signatures were gathered by a Republican employee of the elections board who Mr. Wilson said helped review the petitions once they were filed.
Both hearings have been re-set for hearing at 3:00PM on Monday, August 15, at the large conference room at Government Center in downtown Toledo.
