Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of

Governments will be the governmental

partner of choice to coordinate regional

assets, opportunities, and challenges.

January, 2021

Letter from the President and the Chair

When this pandemic is over, we can’t just say good riddance to hard times and forget about last year.

The fabric of civic life and government operations will be changed by our experiences in 2020, and they

should be.

We learned that jobs that we took for granted, and which don’t pay all that well, are absolutely

critical. We need grocery store clerks as desperately as we need firefighters. We rely on teachers and

neighborhood schools. How will we change the way we reward these workers now that we see their

value with new eyes?

We learned that lots of people – including government employees -- can work from home just as

productively as from an office. And that they have a better life/work balance, and cause less traffic

congestion, less air pollution, and their pets are happier, too. As we plan for the future of our communities,

what will our neighborhoods be like with more neighbors in them? How will downtown business

districts change?

In the last year, government has been strained but it hasn’t broken. Clean water is still delivered to

every house, garbage is collected. TMACOG members collaborated in new ways to produce our two

primary policy documents: the Transportation Legislative Agenda, and the Agenda for Lake Erie. Our

elections changed with more early in-person voting, more mailed ballots, and the integrity of election

workers was essential to confidence in the outcome. The everyday government work of transparency,

accountability, and competence is inspiring and should make us all proud.

We do need to absorb some painful lessons. Public health professionals struggled to persuade some

members of the public to accept science and expert advice. How can we increase confidence in this

part of our health care system? We also learned that health outcomes are starkly linked to income and

zip code which should be a call to action for all of society.

We won’t waste this crisis, we will become better citizens and better leaders as we work together in

cooperation, with faith in each other, and mutual respect.
