Votes against the community position: 1
The appointment of Councillor Joanne Flint by the provincial Conservative government to the OMB created a very tight race for her position in Ward 25. Clifford Jenkins won with less than 100 votes, but what was even more remarkable was that there were seven candidates in the race with over 1,000 votes in the election. A vote recount reconfirmed Jenkinsí election. Thus far on council, Jenkins opposed a bridge to the Island Airport, supported a pesticide ban, and was also was a strong advocate for election finance reforms.
Clifford Jenkins is on the Planning and Transportation Committee, the Nominating Committee and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
