I had breakfast this morning with Doug (paid my own tab - sorry, Toledo Blade, no scandal here). He seemed at peace with his decision.

"I am a father first," he said. "I have had a blast as chair, but I would like to return to a more normal life."

The election results certainly speak for themselves, anonymous. Haynam accomplished much in a year when everyone expected the GOP to be crushed.

"...when everyone expected the GOP to be crushed."

Just goes to show you the mentality of the voters in Lucas County.
