Mayoral candidate asks: never heard of me?

Former city councillor and Miller-era budget chief David Soknacki is getting creative to try and draw attention to his mayoral campaign

Former city councillor and Miller-era budget chief David Soknacki is getting creative to try and draw attention to his mayoral campaign.

Soknacki, who was running fourth (behind declared candidates Tory, Stintz, and Ford) in a recent Forum poll, is poking fun at Mayor Rob Ford notoriety and his lack of name recognition.

      @john He is David Miller's former budget chief, and has been out of politics since 2006...almost as long as that dusty old other guy who is running, Norm Gardner, who is pushing 80. What are we electing, another Pope? :)

      @john We still have the land transfer tax. Nothing has changed with it either. Ford has said he wants to cut it by 10% but he hasn't yet done so. Soknacki wants to change how its calculated but either way it never left. Maybe you are thinking the vehicle registration tax? (which Soknacki never voted for). He left council in 2006 and it was introduced in the 2007 budget .
