Official statement from Mayor Ford on appointment of Ward 3 Councillor

The following is the official statement from Mayor Rob Ford following the appointment of Peter Leon as Ward 3 Councillor, Thursday afternoon:

“It’s a great pleasure to welcome Peter Leon as the new Councillor for Ward 3, Etobicoke Centre.

During the last election, the people of Toronto gave me a clear mandate.

They voted for me to keep taxes low, bring accountability to City Hall and build a great city.

For the past 3 years, my administration has fought successfully to deliver on that mandate.

I am confident that Councillor Leon will play an important role in advancing the core principals of my administration.

Councillor Leon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this role- I welcome him to city hall.

I am confident that together, we will continue delivering results for the residents of Ward 3 and Toronto.

My administration is committed to delivering customer service excellence, an open and transport government, keeping taxes low, reducing the size and cost of government and building a Transportation City.”
