Mayoral Hopeful Touts SeeClickFix in Toronto

Joe Pantalone is a man who gets things done.  Arriving in Canada at age 13 as the son of Sicilian immigrants, he grew to love the people and politics of Toronto.  In 1980 he was elected Toronto Alderman and has been hard at work for his community ever since.  We love people like that -- people with a passion for all things local.  Joe's website reveals one of his goals: making city government more accountable and accessible.  That’s our cue!  Enter SeeClickFix, ready to build bridges between citizens and government.  Ready to make good things happen.


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.”
