Sinkhole and infrastructure become issues in Toledo election

I ended Sinkhole in Toledo provides teachable moment with the moral of the story.
Toledo may not have learned anything from Detroit's experience, but my students got the message that this kind of thing is what happens when infrastructure is neglected.
Toledo appears to be learning that lesson, as the sinkhole has become an election issue.  WNWO has the story in Mayoral candidates talk sinkhole, city infrastructure.

Toledo mayoral candidates takes shots at the current mayor for his handling of the city.
In the struggle between austerity and sustainability that I think defines politics and policy now, it looks like events are pushing Toledo in the direction of sustainability.  I hope the winning candidate doesn't forget that lesson after the election.
