TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner is firing back at the people who want to kick him out of office.
After getting a recall notice from city council, Mayor Finkbeiner says he does not intend to resign.
The mayor released the following statement after receiving a recall notice from City Council Clerk Gerald Dendinger:
"Mr. Dendinger, Clerk of Council, has acted contrary to the evidence that my attorney presented to him this morning. There are not enough valid signatures. The evidence is voluminous.
Of course, I do not intend to resign. We will contest the validity of a significant number of signatures, as more than half of the signatures have already proven to be false or invalid.
Lastly, the day I turn Toledo over to a group of self-interested malcontents from outside of Toledo, will be a cold day in a warm place."
