David Miller For Mayor?

cntowerDid you know there is a municipal election here next week? You've probably seen the signs on lawns and green space throughout the 416. You might even know the names of David Miller's challengers. We're going to the polls next Monday so add that to your Google calendar.

Exactly three years ago this week I wrote this endorsement of David Miller. John Tory and David Miller duked it out to see who would succeed Mel Lastman. I liked Miller for the job because I saw him as an intelligent person with a worthwhile vision doing his very best for the greatest city on the planet.

Three years later, I'm a little disappointed in Miller. Let's just say I expected more. I still back him this time around, but mainly because there isn't a strong enough alternative to secure my vote. Here's hoping in three years time we're discussing promise fulfilled in the local election scene.

I'm fairly disappointed too, and its unfortunate to see that his opponents don't seem to be any better. The city is dirtier these days, especially the west end, and the TTC is still struggling with just maintenance. Toronto needs to keep corporations within the 416, so that those that live here can continue to work here.
The only thing that got my attention was Jane Pitfield's idea to add a kilometre of subway every year for twenty five years. We could use more subway. But this idea is unfeasible.
