He’s really, really ready.
In a tongue-in-cheek video just released on YouTube, Giambrone declares that he’ll be running for mayor without actually saying the words “I’m running for mayor.” (Then again, we already knew that.) With references to everything from Taxi Driver to Barack Obama, the video tries hard to hit the reset button on Giambrone’s relationship with the public, which has become fraught of late in the wake of much criticism of the TTC.
It’s an interesting move, and we’re torn between finding it endearing and, well…unmayoral. One thing’s for certain: Giambrone is doing a very good job of keeping the public’s attention, given that he hasn’t actually launched his campaign yet.
