Kathleen Ford hits both ends of Truth-O-Meter with recycling claims
Update: It continues to be an issue in city politics.
"We implemented the city's first curbside recycling program in the North Shore neighborhood way back in the late 1990s," Ford said during the candidate forum at Lakewood High School. "And it continued until 2000, until we found out Mayor (David) Fischer was not really recycling. ... He went ahead and took (the recycling) to the dump."
Two questions jump out from Ford's statement: Did she help start the city's first curbside recycling program? And was the city pitching a recycling program then simply pitching the recycling?
