article imageToronto Mayor tells newspaper he's returning calls on Christmas

Toronto - During his mayoral campaign, Rob Ford told Toronto voters that one of the most important issues at City Hall is customer service. In a recent interview with a local newspaper, Mayor Ford said he will return a few calls on Christmas Day.
Although Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wants families across the Greater Toronto Area to relax and spend time with their families, he may not take it easy on Christmas.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Ford stated that he wants everyone to “Spend time with your loved ones, have some downtime and keep everyone together” but he may work during the holidays himself.
Ford said he will spending time with his wife, Renata, and their children, but he could return a few phone calls from Toronto residents: “I always return phone calls and if people need something on Christmas Day, they’ve got my number.”
During his tenure as a councillor in Etobicoke, Ford was identified as the man to return phone calls personally and not turn it over to his aides. Although he is not able to return as many calls as he used to, Ford is still making the rounds.
“I’m getting about 300 calls a day [as mayor], so I can’t return them as fast as I used to,” said the new mayor. “I’m probably just two or three days behind right now but I do return every call.”
Last week, Ford scored three major victories just three weeks into his four-year tenure as mayor; cutting city councillors’ budgets by more than $20,000, repealing the $60 personal vehicle tax and making the Toronto Transit Commission an essential service.
