Ever since Mayor David Miller announced he would not be seeking re-election in 2010, there has been much media speculation on who would step up to the plate to run to become Toronto's next mayor. But as usual, many potential political candidates continue to hint and waffle with their intention to run for the city's top seat.
But one man who is not waffling but definite in his intention to become Toronto's next Mayor is none other than PR extraordinaire, JP Pampena, the "Man With the Vision". Click on the audio link below of the on air radio interview to hear JP's exclusive announcement last week on the Jim Richards show on Newstalk 1010.
"No doubt about it, long shot or not, the race is on and I will most definitely be running for Mayor in next year's municipal elections and I plan to win," states Mr. Pampena unequivocally.
In fact, Mr. Pampena and his award-winning PR team, have already been busy with planning out their campaign strategy and laying out his "Man With the Vision" platform, which will be unveiled on his soon to be debuted website, www.jpformayor.ca
And when the Clerk's office opens in January, 2010 to accept nominations for Mayor, you can count on JP being at the front of the line.

JP Pampena, a well-known PR agent, successful entrepreneur and "Man With the Vision", has thrown his hat into the campaign for Toronto's next mayor with his announcement last week to the media. But you wouldn't know that from all the media reports being broadcast speculating on who will be running for Toronto's top job since Mayor David Miller announced he would not be seeking re-election in 2010.
In fact, indicative of this snub, just this morning on a local AM talk show, the host was rambling on with his politician buddy about just this issue with mention made of candidates such as George Mammoliti, Adam Giambroni and even John Tory, who hasn't even declared his intention to run yet, all politicians, but no inclusion of Mr. Pampena in the list. Why is this? And to make matters worse, the political guest went so far as to even endorse his support of John Tory, who for all intents and purposes may not even run for the position.
"Does the media not take my intention to run seriously enough?" queries Mr. Pampena. "Or is it simply that, as the underdog and a non-politician to boot, there is a distinct possibility that I may ultimately be successful in my bid to become the next Mayor of Toronto".
We are sure the media will be playing a different tune once Mr. Pampena, the only "Man With the Vision", becomes the next Mayor of Toronto.
