New blood at City Council?

Royson James is right - it is very difficult to topple a sitting councillor in a Toronto municipal election. All the more reason to get out and vote on November 13. We need plenty of new blood to revitalize our City government. In my Ward, I plan to vote for Alejandra Bravo, a candidate who ran last time out unsuccessfully. Next ward over, Rocky Gualtieri is running against a long time councillor. I know Rocky, and I'm supporting his candidacy. Ward 11 needs a stong leader, and for sure it's time for a change in that ward.

For Mayor, we need some candidates please......

The candidate list is interesting. I'm in Ward 18 and our sitting councillor, Adam Giambrone is only 17 years old, so we'll probably give him a few more years to grow into the job.

We need GOOD people to run and GOOD people to vote in every election - unfortunately so many have given up in frustration - I'm glad you are encouraging people...

Dave Meslin says his sites http://www.tpsc.ca http://www.whorunsthistown.ca and http://www.cityidol.to are going make him a kingmaker in local politics.

If anything Dave who used to work in NDP MPP Marilyn Churley's constituency office has only managed to help fringe candidates undermine the chances of well known and well respected NDP candidates like Alejandra Bravo, Paul Ferreira and Greg Hamara from having any chance to unseat incumbent city councillors.

Way to go Dave!
