Latino caucus elects officers—Contreras, Contreraz, and Balderas


Last Saturday, the Lucas County Democratic Hispanic/Latino Caucus elected new officers: Danny Contreras, president; Rosalinda Contreraz, vice president, and Taylor Balderas, recording secretary. The terms are for two years.


Juan Martínez remains treasurer.

Danny Contreras, newly elected president of the Lucas County Democratic Hispanic/Latino Caucus,  with its new recording secretary Taylor Balderas and vice president Rosalinda Contreraz.


The election for president was necessary when its former president, Robert Torres, vacated after successfully winning a seat to the Toledo Board of Education in November.


Contreras is a retired Lucas County deputy sheriff, having achieved the rank of captain. He ran unsuccessfully for Lucas County sheriff in 2004. Ms. Contreraz works for the city of Toledo and Ms. Balderas works for Viva South, a Toledo CDC.


Balderas, a graduate of Bowling Green State University, is a candidate for Toledo City Council District 3 and has been endorsed by the Lucas County Democratic party.   


Council will make a representative determination for this district on Jan. 17 when it meets at One Government Center, with an election for this office—vacated by Bob McCloskey when he successfully ran for Council-at-Large in November—in May.


The nomination/election process on Jan. 17th is expected to be a complex and convoluted conundrum.
