Lucas County Commissioner Ben Konop:
In your 2006 campaign for Lucas County Commissioner, you twice took a "Pledge Of Ethics And Good Government To The Citizens of Lucas County." In this Pledge you stated that "I will serve the full duration of the term for the office of which I am elected to." You signed this Pledge first on February 9, 2006 and again on May 15, 2006.
In a May 16, 2006 entry on your campaign blog (benkonop.blogspot.com), you asked of your opponent, George Sarantou, "Will he pledge to serve the full duration of his term or is he, as Pam Haynam asserts, seeking to use the Commissioner's office as a springboard to run for Mayor" You wrote then that "It's time for a higher standard of accountability."
We the undersigned respectfully call on you to honor your word by serving the full duration of the term for the office to which you were elected in 2006.
Tom Morrissey is a Lucas County resident and lifelong Toledoan.
