The former Chair of the Toronto Transit Commission was all smiles as she officially kicked off her bid to become Mayor of Toronto on Monday morning.

City councillor Karen Stintz had her two young children at her side as she filled in her nomination papers.

Earlier in the day, former Ontario Progressive Conservative leader and NEWSTALK 1010 host John Tory filed his paperwork.

She says she wants to keep her campaign positive, putting the focus on her work with the TTC and with city council in general.

The Eglinton-Lawrence councillor plans to position herself as an expert on how to get people where they're going.

She promises solutions to solve Toronto's gridlock through strategies based on better public transit and improvement to roads and streets.

However, the councillor is not yet willing to share details on how she will do that while having a minimal impact on tax rates -- something she says is a key component to her campaign platform.

"I look forward to a campaign that is fiscally responsible but also delivers on the priorities of this city," Stintz says.

There was a small glitch as she arrived at the registration desk.

She did not have the mandatory piece of identification and was forced to send a staffer back to her office to retrieve her driver's license while she filled out the forms.

Stintz says she will reveal more details about her campaign platform on Wednesday.
