Lindsay Smith has lived in Toledo for the past 18 years. As a former career diplomat with the Australian Foreign Service he has held postings in the Netherlands,  Scandinavia, New Zealand and the United Nations and the Australian Consulate General in New York before his final posting to the South Pacific, based in Fiji, with an area covering Tonga, New Caledonia, Western Samoa and Vanuatu. He feels honored to be the Mayor’s appointee to Toledo Sister Cities and his eventual hope is to establish the first sister city relationship between Toledo and an Australian city.
