Ex-Toledo councilman McCloskey may run again despite bribery conviction

A longtime Toledo councilman who spent 20 months in a federal prison camp after he was convicted in 2006 for accepting bribes is considering another run for city council.

East Toledo’s Bob McCloskey, 73, pulled petitions from the Lucas County Board of Elections to begin gathering signatures needed to run for the District 3 seat held by Democrat Peter Ujvagi, 70. Mr. Ujvagi, also of East Toledo, is running for re-election. District 3 encompasses East Toledo and parts of the Old South End.

McCloskey, also a Democrat, said he received numerous phone calls from people “begging me to do it,” although he declined to say who was urging him to run again.

“I know I could win if I really push it,” he said. “Several prominent people told me they would help me raise the money.”

1. I never liked Bob McCloskey

Going back to when he was my dad's union rep. He can rot in hell.
