TOLEDO, Ohio - Toledo mayor Wade Kapzsukiewicz announced his pick to be his chief of staff.
Katy Crosby, executive director of the City of Dayton Human Relations Council, was introduced Friday by the Mayor.
“Katy has myriad experience that she will bring to Toledo to help continue our strategic improvement,” Kapszukiewicz said. “Her arrival will continue the theme of change. Among the things Katy will be doing is working with neighborhoods and the economic development team because of her unique skills. She will be stoking development on the neighborhood level.”
Crosby's first day on the job will be March 5. The mayor's office says she will be in Toledo periodically before then to meet with officials and community leaders.
“I am very excited about this opportunity to use my diverse experience to implement the mayor’s ambitious plan for Toledo,” Ms. Crosby said. “Toledo has a lot of similarities to Dayton, including a welcoming community, minor league baseball, booming downtown development, and a great waterfront. I am looking forward to making new friends and playing an important role in Toledo’s continued growth.”
