  1. Cant wait to vote for Paul. It will be good to have a Councilperson again in our ward!

    The current vacancy is unfortunate

  2. Thanks to Paul there’s hope for some representation

    Defusco should donate his council salary and Air BnB profits back to the taxpayers he’s failed to represent and his chronic absences

    He’s a total clown and is in default of his oath
