1. Stop Giorgio Mammoliti

In Humber River-Black Creek, our work is focused on what the local progressive campaign can’t do - we are making sure residents know that on October 22, they should not vote for Giorgio Mammoliti. We are delivering thousands of flyers in swing polls that tell voters why Giorgio Mammoliti should not be re-elected.

Giorgio Mammoliti... where do we begin?

Mammoliti has called his constituents cockroaches [1], appears on ultra-right website Rebel Media [2], and is under active police investigation for a questionable land deal [3] in his ward. He has also taken $275,000 in personal loans from developers [4], and he brazenly benefitted from a fundraiser with lobbyists that netted him $80,000 for personal use [5] and was caught by the Integrity Commissioner for violating the Code of Conduct.[6]

All of this and Mammoliti has the worst attendance record on City Council; he doesn’t even show up for work half the time.[7]

When Mammoliti does show up he has one of the most regressive voting records on council. When Rob Ford was mayor, Mammoliti voted with Ford more than 90% of the time.[8]

Giorgio Mammoliti has voted to:

Having held public office for more than 30 years, Mammoliti is way past his best before date.

 

We need to raise $3,500 for our third party campaign to print flyers and make sure voters know about Mammoliti in Humber River—Black Creek. Can you chip in $15? progresstoronto.ca/campaign2018

 

 

2. Taking on Mammoliti

With Ford’s undemocratic Bill 5 in place there are many races with candidates now running against each other — candidates who never intended to run in the same wards. This is the case in Humber River — Black Creek.

We have highlighted two candidates for you below. Please visit their websites to find out more about how you can support them and get involved with their campaigns.

Progress Toronto is getting the word out about Mammoliti to tens of thousands of voters to help stop support for Mammoliti. We are making space for a progressive candidate to introduce themselves and their vision to voters, so they don’t have to spend their time talking about Mammmoliti. We’ll take that on. Help us deliver flyers to residents in Humber River—Black Creek. Sign up here: progresstoronto.ca/volunteer
