Mike Bell, Toledo's long-time fire chief, has won election as mayor. Bell ran as an independent and defeated Democrat Mike Wilkowski.
Bell will replace Carty Finkbeiner, the controversial mayor who has held that office off and on since 1995.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
