Lucas County Commissioner Pete Gerken at a press conference yesterday called on President Trump for a few "favors". They were all tongue in cheek, and for the most part meant to be sarcastic but a lot of citizens are upset at the tone of Mr Gerken's comments. The commissioner was joined by Rep Marcy Kaptur, Commissioner Wozniak, councilpersons Harper and Sykes, and union officials at The Huntington Center.
Under the mantra of this arena is "ours" they called on Trump to not bring racism and division to the arena for his appearance this Thursday. They also called on him to please pay his bill before he leaves, despite knowing that the bill isn't due for another 20 days and that a down payment has been made already. Ms Kaptur suggested that people stay home that night and light a candle instead of coming to the downtown area to protest.
Kaptur, Gerken, and Wozniak have been in office decades and yet blamed Trump for all of the county's problems. I want to know what "favors" you would ask of Pete Gerken.
