TORONTO, Feb. 24, 2014 /CNW/ - Karen Stintz has officially registered as a candidate for Mayor of Toronto.
The Ward 16 City Council member and former TTC chair filed her papers at 10 a.m. Monday morning.
Stintz said that for the past decade under successive mayors Toronto has been falling further behind on jobs, on economic growth and on innovative solutions to community problems.
"This has helped shape my fundamental belief that we have a choice to relentlessly focus on tomorrow or to live in yesterday, repeating the kind of old-style politics that have stalled Toronto's growth," she said.
"Our choice isn't just between cut-cut-cut or NDP-style spend-spend-spend. I am offering a different choice that focuses on unlocking value for taxpayers."
Stintz said she will be the responsible and accountable mayor Toronto needs to generate new ideas for a better tomorrow.
"At the end of the day, I want to make the lives of Torontonians better: Easier. Simpler. More affordable. Open to more possibilities and more hopeful about the future."
