Hows it not relevant that you live 50 min from a major sex trafficking hub in Toledo. Toledo is #3 in the U.S. and is considered a major player in the human sex trafficking rackett. Its totally relevant and every reader should know this and the reflector and register should make the community aware of this epidemic happening a stone throw away.

Relevant to all Ohioans as Kasich has made sex trafficking one of his signature issues, and signed a new law on it last year. Sex trafficking destroys tens of thousands of lives every year, and I give Kasich credit on this one.
