Statement from Rocco Rossi Campaign

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2010) - Statement: "All but one of these individuals has not been part of this campaign since Bernie Morton took over as campaign manager in late August. None of them have had any recent formal role in the campaign with the exception of Mr. Davis who was fired last Saturday for refusing to put up lawn signs during a major sign blitz and instead choosing to play golf out-of-town. The hundreds of volunteers and staff who are currently working with Rocco are hard-working and dedicated individuals.

"While Mr. Smitherman and his team may be accustomed to backroom dealings, Rocco comes from a business and not-for-profit world where honesty and integrity are paramount to everything that you do.

"Every single one of these individuals was either hired by or associated with Mr. Aggarwal, who has not been involved with the campaign in any way, shape, or form since campaign manager Bernie Morton took over, and, unsurprisingly, followed him after being fired or quitting the campaign.

"Rocco Rossi is about making City Hall honest. Rocco Rossi is about restoring trust to City Hall. Rocco Rossi is about taking power out of the backrooms at City Hall and returning it to the people of Toronto. This campaign – our staff, volunteers, and supporters – believe and live by that motto."
