TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo Mayoral candidate Wade Kapszukiewicz talked economic development Thursday morning.
He says if elected, he will hire an economic development staff, develop a business retention program and establish stronger relationships with UT and other higher education institutions.

Kapszukiewicz was endorsed by several business groups including the Chamber of Commerce, Home Builders Association, Toledo Board of Realtors and the United Building Trades Council.
