A Call From... Mike Ferner

by Sam Melden

Today I got a call from Mike Ferner. Mike is a former City Councilman and mayoral candidate and is currently organizing a group called Advocates for a Clean Lake Erie. Nearly two years ago we experienced the “water crisis” of 2014 and this is the first of many episodes where I will talk to people involved in solving our water issues in Northwest Ohio. Why are there so many different perspectives and seemingly so little progress? Is it a communication problem? Government inefficiency? Do we know the way forward?

Also, be sure to listen all the way to the end. I have a few questions for you and would love to have you involved in a few projects I am attempting to organize. The common good is a group effort so we need to push it forward together.

Mentioned in this episode:

Advocates for a Clean Lake Erie

Toledoans For Safe Water

West Toledo Democratic Club
