Spang eager for council service

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Sandy Spang says she is energized by her third place finish in the Toledo City Council at-large race, and she's hoping to make an impact at city hall as soon as she takes office.

"I was elected with a clear message of small business and neighborhoods. I know that's what people expect me to work on and I will," Spang said.

She says her commitment to make Toledo more business-friendly will not be lip service, as she promises to dive head-first into the city's regulatory red tape to look for improvements.

"Someone who really understands the business climate in Toledo and truly understands what it means to be business-friendly," she said. "I'm especially interested in the regulations and ordinances and approval times that govern small business."

Spang will join former Councilman and Mayor Jack Ford on council, along with incumbents Rob Ludeman and Steve Steel, who both won another term on council. The counting of provisional ballots will determine the outcome of the final two at-large seats, between Theresa Gabriel, Adam Martinez and Larry Sykes.
