FitzGerald plans summit on water problems

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - Cuyahoga County executive and Democratic candidate for governor Ed FitzGerald is convening a summit on Lake Erie water problems.

FitzGerald's office says the Monday afternoon summit in Cleveland will gather policymakers and others in northeast Ohio to "discuss a strategic approach for addressing emergency situations on Lake Erie."

The meeting comes about a week after toxic algae blooms in Lake Erie contaminated Toledo's water supply for days.

FitzGerald, a Democrat who is running against Republic Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik), is coming off a difficult week during which he had to answer questions about why he lacked a permanent driver's license for more than a decade, and why he was in a car in an empty parking lot in 2012 with a woman who isn't his wife.
