Jerry Huber and Pete Gerken talk Jeep Fest

It is so synonymous with Toledo, it’s almost easy to take for granted. But, the stout and sturdy four-wheel drive vehicle that powered our military during war time and which has supported thousands of families over generations in Toledo will get all the attention when the Toledo Jeep Fest rolls into our city next week.

Jerry Huber used to run the Toledo Jeep plant, now he heads the Jeep Fest steering committee. Pete Gerken — yes, a lucas county commissioner —might actually put that title in the back seat next week in favor of another: former Toledo Jeep worker.

Watch as they discuss Toledo Jeep Fest with Jerry Anderson at the Leading Edge table.
