Rossi Emerging As Alternative To Disappointing Frontrunners

Mayoral Candidate Creating Buzz as Race Heads Into Final Stretch

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2010) - Toronto voters are increasingly realising that they don't need to hold their noses and vote for either of the perceived front-runners. Underdog Rocco Rossi is gathering grassroots momentum in every part of Toronto as voters judge that he is the best candidate to lead Toronto, to turn Toronto around, and put our city back into the hands of the people.

Here is what is being said today about Rocco Rossi for Mayor:

"Yesterday he released his fiscal plan...I think his has the best reviews of those out to date...Mr. Rossi's was detailed, it was rational, it was realistic, and it doesn't have any huge holes in it." - John Tory, Newstalk 1010, Oct. 6

"The Board of Trade likes the plan...His promise of "change, not chaos," is attractive and well-put." - Chris Selley, National Post, Oct. 6

"He made a virtue in his plan of saying he would not try to buy the taxpayer's votes with their own money." - John Tory, Newstalk 1010, Oct. 6

"I was quite impressed with Mr. Rossi." – Graham Allen (first-time voter), CBC Metro Morning, October 6th

"I was surprised with Rocco Rossi [...] I thought he answered very well and I thought he answered very clearly." – Kamla Ross (first-time voter), CBC Metro Morning, October 6th

"...he made it quite clear: We can't give ourselves tax cuts now and expect the province or the unions to give the city a better deal going forward. He doesn't "believe in bribing voters with their own money." - Chris Selley, National Post, Oct. 6

"He performed the best in the CityTV debate." - John Tory, Newstalk, Oct. 6

"Still, Mr. Rossi's remains a far stronger campaign than the polls would indicate — he projects optimism, purpose and...pragmatism." Chris Selley, National Post, Oct. 6

"He was on the scene a week or so ago of the school shooting. He was very quick to speak up very responsibly in my view on this whole driveway issue...half of the other people voted in favour of this thing on the driveways, and then later said 'Oh I didn't know I voted for that,' What's that all about?" - John Tory, Newstalk 1010, Oct. 6
