Joe Cressy, who lost a recent federal byelection, wants to be a city councillor in Toronto.
Cressy, who ran for the federal NDP on June 30, filed his nomination papers to run as a candidate in the Trinity-Spadina ward on Wednesday morning.
The social activist ran as an NDP candidate to fill Olivia Chow’s seat in the House of Commons. He lost to former Trinity-Spadina councillor Adam Vaughan, who won the federal seat for the Liberals.
Cressy had also worked on Chow’s 2011 federal campaign.
His parents are former Toronto city councillors.
Twenty-four other candidates have already registered to run for Ward 20.
