Enza Anderson to file nomination papers for City Councilor Ward 27

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 19, 2010) - On Wednesday January 20 at 10 a.m., journalist and political activist Enza Anderson will file nomination papers for her bid to become Councilor for Ward 27. Anderson, 45, says that her trip to Toronto City Hall's first floor Elections Office will be a deeply gratifying moment in her career.

Many will recall Anderson's bid for Mayor of Toronto in 2000-when she placed third-as well as her attempt to be placed on the leadership ticket for the former Canadian Alliance Party in 2002.

Anderson says she intends to represent everyone, including those who feel excluded from the decisions that affect Ward 27: "I'll be expressing my appreciation for my wonderful hometown by working to help any of my neighbors who need a stronger voice."

As to her status as a trans-gendered woman, Anderson says, "I expect this be treated as just another statistic that doesn't normally enter a political discussion, any more than noting a candidate's weight or other physical features." While Anderson has championed the causes of diversity and tolerance, her run for council will champion the needs of all in her ward.
