MUO and UT are closer to merging, Escobar serenaded by Latino community


Dr. Lloyd Jacobs of the Medical University of Ohio and Dr. Dan Johnson of the University of Toledo received framed copies last week of Toledo City Council’s resolution recognizing, encouraging, and endorsing a merger of the two Toledo-based universities.


Outgoing Council President Louis Escobar, Councilman Rob Ludeman, and Councilwoman Ellen Grachek made the presentations, as captioned in the above photograph.


Dr. Jacobs has since met with UT’s employees; both presidents have also met with the Ohio Board of Regents.


The combined institution’s name, if approve, is unknown.


Also, at last week’s council meeting, Louis Escobar, Karyn McConnell Hancock, and Mayor Jack Ford were recognized by Council for their services to the citizens of Toledo. All will be leaving at the end of 2005.


Some of Mayor Ford’s comments can be read in this week’s edition of Sojourner’s Truth, in an exclusive interview of the mayor by The Truth’s editor, Fletcher Word.


New Council member Joe Birmingham was welcomed. Birmingham is the councilperson for District 3, vacated by Bob McCloskey after his Council At-Large victory in November of 2004.   


Council President Escobar received a treat in the way of a Mexican serenade from members of the Latino community, organized by community activists Lucy Weaver and Sylvestre Durán, as viewed below.
