Statement from the Mayor

It is with great sadness that we learn Toledo City Councilman, and former Mayor John Jack Ford has passed away on March 21, 2015. His loss leaves our community as well as his family with great sadness.

Toledo not only lost a great Councilman, and former Mayor, but a past State Representative, House Minority leader, Council President, dedicated public servant, father, and grandfather. Our City will deeply mourn his loss.

It is with compassion that we remember Jack Ford passed away doing what he loved, serving the people of this great City. In all his time as a public servant John Jack Ford fought for equality, healthcare, and access to the basic needs for our citizens. We give our hearts and our thoughts to his family and friends during this time.
