WTOL Editorial: Hoping the best for Mayor Bell

The election is over. What have we learned? 

Locally, we see an impatient and not very engaged voter base. We don't want any new taxes, and we are intolerant of politicians who seemed to be embroiled in distracting personal issues.  And the person chosen to manage Toledo and northwest Ohio out of this economic mess is former fire chief Mike Bell.

By reputation Mr. Bell surrounds himself with smart and competent people and then let's them do their job. That will be refreshing.  He is also considered a team  builder who doesn't get lost in the details. I can tell you he is a hard guy not to like. I hope Mayor Mike Bell is the answer.  He will get a lot of support; he just won't get much time. Budget deficits and people out of work make for short honeymoons.
