A couple months ago on June 18, 2009, I wrote a commentary entitled Shunned by Keith Wilkowski, Toledo Mayor Candidate.
Very soon after having published that blog entry, or to be more precise on June 21, 2009, I received an e-mail that opened with "Hello Roland" and contained not only an acknowledgement of the contents of the blog entry but also contained some personal communication, and then closed with "Best regards, Keith."
Rather than rush to any new thoughts, I patiently awaited as events continued to develop. In the almost two months since the aforementioned blog entry, I have continued to receive regular updates from the Wilkowski for Mayor Committee by e-mail and by telephone.
That is all well and good, but the real icing on the cake came tonight when I was attending an event with my son, Adam Hansen, the creator of ToledoLinks.com, at which Keith Wilkowski was also in attendance. Keith sought me out, greeted me, and we had a very easy, cordial, friendly, personal, and political business conversation.
No other candidate for Mayor of the City of Toledo has contacted me in any way, shape, or form. Not one, nada, nil, zilch, none other than Keith Wilkowski. That tells me something.
I am pleased as punch to now write Acknowledged by Keith Wilkowksi, Toledo Mayor Candidate.
