Election Day for Toronto is just around the corner, and Joe (currently serving as councillor and deputy mayor) is running for the mayor's office. He introduced SeeClickFix to his community during his final campaign speech, as reported today by CityNews of Toronto.
While SeeClickFix is primarily used for reporting 311 issues and problems in an area, Joe's speech highlighted the opportunities for funders, volunteers, and non-profits to collaborate on "projects" that might be opened or suggested through SeeClickFix, like the need for a new playground in a neighborhood. The candidate seemed excited about the chance for development and improvement in his community and suggested that citizens "watch" their neighborhoods for chances to help out.
This see-it, fix-it approach is right in line with what we do here at SeeClickFix. Joe Pantalone is a proactive public servant with a strong vision. We are honored to join "Mayor Joe" as he invites his neighbors in Toronto to work with him, as he says, "to build an even better city."
