Kladitis, John

Just like many of the people who live in Ward 41 John has been a huge supporter of Rob & Doug Ford for many years & has been very frustrated with how many of the City Councillors have constantly voted against them on many issues. John will be voting for Doug Ford as Mayor but more importantly he will be supporting Doug Ford & following his direction will be his number 1 priority for the next 4 years as well. John will also be supporting the subway expansion into Scarborough. Rob Ford pushed hard for this & John strongly believes it needs to continue. John wants to keep Scarborough moving forward.


A vote for John as your City Councillor for Ward 41 is a vote for Doug Ford for Mayor. Next to Rob Ford, John will be Doug Ford's biggest supporter at City Hall.

John is University educated & attended Ryerson University for a bachelors of Commerce program. John studied management courses which gave him a firm grasp of the business environment. He later went on to work as an Admissions Councillor at a College in Toronto so he has been heavily involved with youth & adults & guiding them towards a prosperous future. John's strengths include dealing with people of all nationalities & his experience as an Admissions Councillor has given him the experience he needs to be an effective City Councillor since he had to deal with youth & adults of various age & nationalities helping them out in person & resolving their issues.
