Santiago or Vásquez recommended by the Latino Caucus for the McCloskey seat

Lourdes Santiago and Martha Delgado

Last Saturday, the Lucas County Democratic Hispanic/Latino Caucus held its monthly meeting. Member Lourdes Santiago, a city of Toledo attorney assigned to the city’s tax division, stated that she was a candidate for the city council seat recently vacated by Bob McCloskey, who is under indictment and information filed by the state of Ohio and U.S. government on several bribery counts.

McCloskey has entered pleas of guilty to 3 counts of bribery and will be sentenced sometime in the near future.

Caucus member Bob Vásquez is also a candidate for this seat and at an earlier meeting of the Caucus, the membership recommended that Vásquez’s name be submitted to the Lucas County Democratic Party for consideration as its nominee for a future vacancy.

The Caucus voted to amend this recommendation to include Santiago for consideration by the Democratic Party, along with Vásquez.
