Toledo City Council at Large
Ron Murphy was born and raised in West Toledo. He attended Meadowvale Elementary, Washington Junior High, and graduated from Whitmer High School.
Ron has worked in Toledo his entire life. His work history includes many years managing in sales and supervising for a Toledo based nonprofit company. The majority of his career has been and continues to be in public service.
Ron has dedicated the last 15 years of his life to trying to end homelessness for people with mental health issues. To date, he has helped over 2000 people go from homeless to living in permanent housing. He is passionate about helping people and feels his job is a true blessing.
Ron is blessed by his lovely wife, Jenny, and his talented sons Romero and Dominic. The couple were high school sweethearts and have been married now for 18 years.
Toledo City Council has been rocked by corruption. Shockingly, 4 members have been charged with federal bribery and a another under investigation for misusing a city vehicle for personal use. Who can you trust on Toledo City Council? That should NEVER be something you have to ask yourself. Ron will bring integrity back to City Council, providing valuable oversight and making sure your tax dollars are used responsibly.
Last year Toledo set a record for the most homicides in its history. This year we are on pace to surpass that. People are scared to go out at night, and they have a right to be. While our current City Council flirts with de funding the police, our children are dying in the streets. We need real leadership that supports our police and invest in our neighborhoods. We need to stop making excuses for criminal behavior and lock up those who threaten peace in our communities.

For far to long Toledo neighborhoods have been put on the back burner. Downtown projects have become the city’s only priority, causing the rest of Toledo to become neglected. Whether it’s crumbling roads, abandoned houses, untouched properties, trash in vacant lots, speeding cars or violence in the streets. Toledo has a lot of work to do and we need to focus on its communities. People deserve to live in a city that they can be proud of.
