Twenty-year veteran of Parliament Hill, former Toronto-Danforth Member of Parliament, and past principal in a 110-year old Toronto family business, Dennis Mills, is the latest Toronto Community Leader to endorse Anthony Furey for Mayor of Toronto.
“Public office is about service to people, and I commend anyone who has the passion to run,” Mr. Mills said on the weekend. “But it takes a special, authentic talent and skill-set to do the job.Anthony Furey is the candidate who is built for the job,” said Mr. Mills on the weekend.
Dennis worked in his family’s 110-year old event rental business that started in Cabbagetown, learning what it meant to run a small business and successfully serve a customer base in this City. His 20 years on Parliament Hill, sixteen in which he servedas the Member of Parliament for Toronto-Danforth, offer unique insights into effective public service.
“Our Mayor needs to have an appreciation for small and medium-sized business owners, how these represent the economic engine of our neighbourhoods; and how Toronto’s economic prosperity depends on a properly running city infrastructure that serves the people of this City. Anthony Fureyis an absolutely solid choice for Mayor of Toronto.”
“Toronto is unique in Canada,” Mr. Mills continued. “The only way this City will move forward is with a Mayor who has vision and the passion for service; someone who has the talent to bring people together and build working relationships with the private sector and other levels of government; a candidate who appreciates that the Mayor of Toronto and Toronto City Hall are there to serve the people. Anthony Furey as Mayor of Toronto has what it takes to truly restore our reputation as a World Class City.”
“It’s such an honour to be endorsed by Dennis Mills,” said Furey. “I grew up in his East York riding and he’s always been widely respected. I’m looking forward to receiving advice from Dennis, both on the campaign trail and when I get the honour of serving in the Mayor’s Office.”
