TOLEDO, Ohio — Incumbent Treasurer Lindsay Webb has beat out local attorney John Rozic are for Lucas County Treasurer as the county's unofficial results were released Wednesday morning.
Webb has served in that role since 2018 after previously serving on Toledo City Council. She told voteres her experience is needed right now.
“Since I've been in the treasurer's role, a polar vortex followed by a major power outage in downtown toledo, and now the coronavirus. And all of those things have required legitimate leadership to lead the office through the important work of the taxpayers,” said Webb.
Webb will be responsible for collecting taxes and keeping financial records for Lucas County, as well as making communicating and interacting with the public easier.
Webb's challenger was John Rozic, a local attorney and member of Waterville City Council. Rozic ran as a Republican and says his law and economics background will help him should he be elected in this role.
“I think maybe we need a new direction, a little more balance in county government, to keep the county moving forward. I've been practicing law in Toledo for almost 40 years, not quite 40 years but primarily in business, tax, real estate and trust and estates. So the accounting degree, certainly I can look at a financial statement and a budget,” said Rozic.
“I’m going to be looking for ways to even more modernize the the things we're doing in the treasurers office. Ways for people to pay online without fees,” said Webb.
“As treasurer I would try and have a friendly atmosphere but make sure we are collecting all the tax dollars that are due, and maintain transparency so they know where there money is going and where it comes from,” said Rozic.
