Two Green Party candidates for Toledo City Council will hold a press conference Monday, July 11, at 4:30 pm outside at One Government Center after delivering their nominating petitions.
This is the first time two Greens are running simultaneously for Toledo City Council. Anita Rios is running for the Council District 4 seat and Sean Nestor is running for the District 6 seat.
Both Toledo natives believe two-party politics hampers progress and innovative change and voters deserve other alternatives.
Rios says City Council members and other local leaders should push aggressively for Congress to re-direct money away from the military and back to local services. She plans to make, “Give us back our money,” a campaign slogan.
Nestor believes in fiscal responsibility through long-term planning for the future of Toledo. A proponent of alternative energy, he believes we can build a sustainable future by embracing technology in a way that reduces government expenses and makes Toledo truly a business friendly city of the future.
Rios serves on the Central Committees for both the Lucas County and Ohio Green Parties and is president of the Toledo chapter of the National Organization for Women.
Nestor is a Systems Administrator at Seymour & Associates MassMutual and is an instructor at Owens Community College.
