Incumbent Toledo councilman Adam Martinez endorses incumbent mayor Mike Bell

Toledo City Council candidate Adam Martinez, a Democratically-endorsed incumbent, turned his back on the union-preferred and Ohio Democratic party-favored mayoral candidate D. Michael Collins today and instead publicly endorsed Mayor Mike Bell.

"I cannot in good conscious support a candidate who does not recognize the racial concerns that many in our community have,” Mr. Martinez said while standing shoulder to shoulder with the mayor downtown.

Mr. Martinez blasted Mr. Collins for his past statements on racial profiling in the Toledo police department.

Before the September primary, Mr. Collins said he did not believe Toledo police engage in racial profiling.

Mayor Bell, a political independent, in turn endorsed Mr. Martinez. 

Mr. Collins is also an independent.
