Canales-Flores opens campaign for District 6

By Fletcher Word, La Prensa Reporter

Lisa-Canales Flores, Democratic candidate for Toledo City Council District 6, opened her campaign for office last Wednesday with a rally at Local 45 headquarters in Point Place.  

Canales-Flores, a City of Toledo employee and member of the Washington Local School Board since 1999, has also served as chairman of the Civilian Police Review Board and as president of the Point Place Business Association.

Canales-Flores, a longtime supporter of Mayor Jack Ford, was asked about the current split in the Lucas County Democratic Party and which faction she hoped would be endorsing her.

“I have been a Democrat for all of my adult life,” replied Canales-Flores. “I am running as a Democrat and am seeking the support of all Democrats. I will be seeking the endorsement of both the so-called ‘A’ team and the ‘B’ team and I hope that the leadership of both groups will see fit to support my candidacy. I am eager to reach out not only to all party members but also to all of the voters in District 6.

“But my support for Mayor Jack Ford is deep-rooted and unwavering. I will do all I can to help the mayor win re-election and I think his re-election is vital for the City of Toledo .

“I helped to organize Latinos for Ford in 2001 and nothing has changed my opinion that Jack Ford is the most qualified person to be mayor, especially in light of his numerous accomplishments over the last three and a half years during some horrible economic times.”

Last Wednesday’s fundraiser brought Canales-Flores the endorsements of Local 45, Asbestos Workers; Local 33, the Sheet Metal Workers; Local 92, the Toledo Fire Fighters; and Local 8, the IBEW.

Also present at the fundraiser were Lucas County Recorder Anita López, candidates for Toledo Municipal Court Judge Lourdes Santiago and Daniel Pilrose, candidate for Toledo City Council at-large seat Thomas Meinecke, and Bravo bimonthly magazine publisher Margarita de León, among other supporters, friends, and family of the candidate.
