Deadline is June 25
0 0

Anyone who dreams of holding office without going through the headache of an election has just a few days left to tell Toronto City Council why they should be appointed to fill one of two vacant seats.

The city is currently soliciting applications to fill seats vacated in Ward 20, Trinity-Spadina and Ward 5, Etobicoke-Lakeshore.

The first was left open when Adam Vaughan stepped down from council in order to run for the Liberals in an upcoming federal byelection.

The Etobicoke-Lakeshore seat was vacated recently when former councillor Peter Milczyn won a seat for the Liberals in the recent provincial election.

To be eligible for appointment an applicant must be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years of age, a resident of Toronto or the owner/renter of property in the city, and not legally prohibited from voting or holding municipal office.

Those interested in learning more can attend one of two public information sessions being held by the city.

The first will take place June 23 at city hall at 7 p.m. The second session will take place at 7 p.m. on June 24 at Etobicoke Civic Centre.

Council will hear applicants in person and vote on how to fill the vacancies at a special session of council on July 7 at 9:30 a.m.

Whoever council chooses to fill the seats may not have that long on the job. The current term of council ends on November 30. Municipal elections for all council positions will be held October 27.

Applications to fill the vacant seats can be picked up at city hall and are due by 4:30 p.m. on June 25 at the Elections Services office, 100 Queen St. West., 1st Floor North
