So have you heard about that Toledo mayoral candidate who predicted that the city would basically become the pits of hell if she were not elected?
Well, she’s from here.
Politician and accidental internet sensation Opal Covey was raised in West Carrollton and graduated from West Carollton High School.
“Thank you, Jesus,” the self-proclaimed prophetess said after speaking in tongues at the conclusion of the interview. “That was a confirmation, if people don’t give me what I earned in 2013 back, and I’m not on that seat in November, then you’ll see God visit the city in the greatest destruction you’ve ever seen.”
The 1958 West Carrollton grad has run for mayor five times, including this go-around. She came in last place Tuesday, getting less than 1 percent, according to the Toledo Blade.
“Her campaign platform has not changed much over the years. It’s based around the “pot of gold” Toledo is sitting on, its untapped tourism industry. A vision from God told her that the creation of amusement parks in the downtown area, in particular Promenade Park, would bring hundreds of millions of dollars a year in revenue in the city.”
