Duly Quoted: Giorgio Mammoliti

“Thank you all for participating in this site…I have received a lot of good feedback and some rediculous [sic] remarks as well…you all know who you are on both fronts…”
—Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti (Ward 7, York West), who started a Facebook group called “Save the City..Support the Ford Administration” earlier this week, announcing (in that Facebook group) that he would be shutting down the site today, at least temporarily. In another post just after midnight, Mammoliti, who is a huge fan of ellipses, vented his frustration with some commenters, “This site is meant to be a site to allow others an opportunity to give input to the core service review that is being conducted at City Hall…Its [sic] not meant to accept some of the language I have read or the insults thrown at us and some of the users…. You are not welcome on this site if you think its [sic] your way to intimidate and throw others off….” He did not address complaints from the numerous members who asked why their posts, which they claim were legitimate questions, had been deleted from the group.
