Councillor Adam Vaughan to Run for Federal Liberals

Toronto Star is reporting, and sources have confirmed to Newstalk 1010’s Jerry Agar, that the councilor will run in Trinity-Spadina in upcoming by-election.

It appears City Councillor Adam Vaughan has had enough with municipal politics and is eyeing a seat in Ottawa. Sources have told Newstalk 1010’s Jerry Agar that the former broadcaster-turned politician has been wooed by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and decided to throw his hat into the ring after NDP MP Olivia Chow decided to run for mayor of the city of Toronto. 

Adam Vaughan has been representing Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina since 2006.   

He will be competing against NDP candidate Joe Cressy who ran Olivia Chow’s federal campaign in 2011.

Calls to Adam Vaughan’s office had not been returned by the time this article was posted.

    May God have mercy on all of us. He did enough damage at City Hall. I can only imagine what he'll do in Ottawa.

      @Jim Of all the councillors at City Hall he had the most for reelection 2010 at 16,486. He did a great job holding Ford at bay.
