I used to live in his riding, & as a City Council member, he is/was absolutely helpful, & a real go-getter for his constituents. It didn't matter if he had never heard of you, he still went that extra mile to actually be of assistance.

When I moved here, it was a rude awakening. The 'Who's yer Daddy' method of dealing or not dealing with constituents was a new one on me. Back in TO., ever satisfied customer aka constituent is another potential vote come election day. Nobody was keeping tabs on what happened last election, or who you voted for. They were looking forward -to the next election to see if they could keep you happy or swing your votes in their direction.

(Hamilton could ABSOLUTELY learn a few things about that!)

That being said, I don't think that Rob Ford would make a good mayor. He just may be the next Mel (Laughing Stock) Lastman. :( His arch conservative ideas will not work in the mayor's chair.
The Liberals don't want to see a 'Conservative' as mayor of a major City, so they just keep digging up dirt on him.)

I don't want to see George Smitherman as mayor either! He is running 2nd. behind Ford. 'Had enough Liberal deception, trickery, & nit picking. Smitherman was Liberal Health Minister for long enough to break the piggy bank. No! No! No!

If David Miller can not be convinced to come back, even with a write-in ballot option, I'd have to pick 'Joe Pants'. Joe Pantalone has served in council for many years, is respected by those around him. & is open to new ideas. He is the best hope for Toronto to move forward, not backward or sideways.
