Finkbeiner Attacks Ford On Fire Hydrant Painting


(Toledo, OH) Former Toledo mayor Carty Finkbeiner, currently the front-runner in the 2005 mayorl race, blasted Jack Ford's record on fire hydrants.

"One of the lasting legacies of the Finkbeiner era was the distinctive green-and-white fire hydrant painting program," said Finkbeiner. "We received the 1998 and 1999 National Hydrant Awards for civic dedication to hydrant beautification."

Finkbeiner said that Ford seems "oblivious" to the issue of beautiful hydrants.

"We have sources in the Division of Maintenance who say that not a single hydrant has been scheduled for repainting in the past 3-1/2 years," he said. "I find that to be unconscionable."

Mayor Jack Ford had a two-word answer to Finkbeiner's criticisms.

"Paint this," said Ford.

Comments:
What an ugly hydrant. Jack should be ashamed.
 
That is one sad hydrant, I'm shocked and appalled.

:-)
 
Worked very hard to get those hydrants painted, yes I did.

How Jack Ford can ignore them is beyond me, but I promise Toledo that I'll get 'em sparkling once again.
 
JFO IS getting the fire hydrants painted.

You have a picture of a prime example, right in your post.

A lot of effort was taken to make it look like that. You just don't appreciate the talent of a really skilled artisan...
 
I think it's a nice fire hydrant!
 
heh heh heh it looks like a boob.
