Dr. Swisher, What can we do about the recent dramatic rise in crime in our City? Oliver, Toledo
Hello Oliver. This is a timely and crucial question as recently WTOL Channel 11 reported that the rate of homicides in Toledo have more than doubled from last years number. I know you would agree that even one life lost is too many, so the alarming increase in crime needs to be addressed.
Here are a few tips for curbing and eventually overcoming this issue:
The Bible reminds us “Blessed are those who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times” Psalm 106:3.
You and I have the opportunity to make a real significant difference for our family, friends and fellow Toledoans as we get involved and become a positive influence in the world around us.
One way to do that in a concrete way is to participate in our Mayoral Candidate Forum on September 11 at 3:30pm in the Family Life Center of Epworth UMC. All 3 Mayoral candidates have been invited. Join us as together we continue to strive for peace and harmony for all.
