Current mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson has held that position since 2015, and says through her leadership the city of Toledo has improved.

Waniewski's mayoral plan is to focus on city services, rebuild neighborhoods and make the government more accountable to citizens. He said some of the things he would do if elected would be to sign a regional water authority and re-vamp the city's budget process. 

Self-proclaimed prophetess Covey claims she has been the true mayor since 2013.
