María Rodríguez-Winter part of Carty’s transition team


Last Friday at campaign headquarters at 10 South Superior Street in Toledo, Mayor-elect Carty Finkbeiner announced his transition team.


Co-Chair of the team consists of Dennis Duffey, Rob Ludeman (Republican city councilman and former candidate for mayor), attorney Tom Palmer, Kathy Steingraber, and Myron Stewart (Editor of the Toledo Journal).

The committee also includes: María Rodríguez-Winter, Teresa Graven, Perlean Griffin, attorney Bobby Kaplan, Bill Lichtenwald, Bob Moore, Jack Murphy, John Orser, Allison Perz, Bob Reinbolt, Al Smith, and former opponent, attorney Keith Wilkowski.


Rodríguez-Winter is an All State insurance agent, with her office directly across from the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) and the Sofia Quintero Arts and Cultural Center; she was instrumental in the creation of the latter, which currently is directed by Joe Balderas, whose name had been mentioned as a possible replacement for Councilman Bob McCloskey of District 3, who was victorious Nov. 8 as a councilman-at-large. 


On Nov. 8, Finkbeiner (Toledo’s mayor from 1994 to 2002) defeated Mayor Jack Ford, 62 per cent to 38 per cent, for a 4-year mayoral term commencing either Jan. 3 or Jan 2. of 2006.


Mayor Ford had already appointed an interim officer to assist in the transition, which is believed to be Tuesday AM, Jan. 3, 2006, since Jan. 2 is a holiday.
