Endorsements

I believe it is important to reach across party lines and work together to get things done for our city.

I am proud to have the support of so many leaders and friends from our community.

"This spring, the federal government pledged $9 billion over ten years for building subways in Toronto. Ken knows the need to build subways and transit to get the city moving. Ken has a track record as School Trustee of being very fiscally responsible, ensuring money is spent wisely and efficiently. He will work to expand the Sheppard Subway east and west and build the new Relief Line."

Dr. Geng Tan 

Member of Parliament for Don Valley North

"Ken respects taxpayer dollars and will ensure they are spent appropriately. He can bring common sense to City Hall and is a great choice for Don Valley North."

The Honourable Mike Harris

Progressive Conservative

Former Premier of Ontario

"Ken has shown great leadership and commitment in his time as School Trustee. His honesty, integrity and hard work are valuable assets for the position of City Councillor in Ward 17, Don Valley North. He will serve the residents well and has my support."

Yasmin Ratansi

Member of Parliament, Don Valley East

"Ken has demonstrated excellent fiscal responsibility as the School Trustee.

Unlike his opponent who resigned from City Council and took $112,000 severance from taxpayers, Ken is not collecting any severance from the school board. As the Budget Chair at the board, he eliminated the structural deficit, which was a fantastic accomplishment."

Andrea Micieli

Past President, Toronto Taxpayers Coalition

"Ken's plan to reduce violent crime by banning the sale of guns and ammunition in Toronto, along with supporting our police, hiring more youth outreach workers and more mental health supports is a smart plan.

I strongly support Ken."
