TOLEDO, Ohio - In a letter received by Lucas County Commissioner Pete Gerken Thursday morning, County Dog Warden Tom Skeldon said he is going to retire from his post effective Jan. 31, 2010, a job he has held for the past 22 years.

In the letter, Skeldon said he felt privileged to have served the community for 22 years and that he took his position within the county seriously.Read entire article here.

I want to thank Tom Skeldon for performing a very tough job for many, many years under such scrutiny. He is a great man and a caring person. Being micromanaged by the entire city would drive anyone into early retirement.
Good luck to you Tom. Your supporters are behind you.
