Book chronicles Mayor Finkbeiner's zaniest moments

Posted by LS

TOLEDO (WTOL) - A new little book is out, and it's poking big fun at the expense of Toledo's mayor. It's called "The Little Book of Carty."

Dave Murray and Kirk Walters with the Toledo Blade compiled some well-known moments involving Mayor Carty Finkbeiner including the "deaf at the airport" incident and his call for a boycott of Little Caesars Pizza.

"When you go back and look at everything Carty said over the years, there's some amazing wacky things he said. We started looking, and we realized there's enough for a book. It's our gift to Toledo," says Dave Murray, special assignments editor for the Blade.

The book is available at the Blade offices at 541 N. Superior St. for about $9. Details here.

A portion of the proceeds will go to a charity designated by the mayor: The Boys and Girls Clubs of Toledo.
