article imageRocco Rossi bids final farewell to Toronto, issues statement

By Andrew Moran     Oct 17, 2010 in Politics
Toronto - Former Toronto mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi has dropped out of the race and despite his low polling numbers throughout the race, Rossi feels the last 9 months have been an "incredible journey."
After Rocco Rossi’s announcement to end his bid for mayor of Toronto on Tuesday, the mainstream media outlets dubbed Rossi as “classy,” “intelligent” and “the best mayor Toronto never had.”
On Sunday, Rossi issued a final statement to the general public thanking his staff, his volunteers and the voters who stood by him until the end: “I have been moved by the stories of hope and inspiration that Torontonians from all walks of life have shared with me.”
Rossi explained that his mayoral campaign has put the spotlight on certain issues that affect Torontonians, including an honest City Hall, “getting value” for taxpayer money and pushing the city of Toronto to move forward in a positive direction.
“Make no mistake, together we accomplished great things,” wrote Rossi. “I have been inspired by the countless volunteers and supporters who took time out of their busy schedules to knock on doors, make phone calls, attend events and pound in lawn signs. I have been inspired by the people from every corner of our city who have stood up and demanded change. I have been inspired by Torontonians and our great city.”
Rossi concluded that he and his family thank everyone for everything they have done and that it was a “true honour representing you as a candidate for mayor” and is grateful for the opportunity.
