The man who made a mayor out of Miller joins Team Pantalone
For lefties at city hall, the mayoral race has been a political cha-cha. Nimble feet are assets to insiders who’ve had to quickly transfer weight from one left-wing candidate to the next—David Miller, Adam Giambrone, Joe Pantalone. But the dance may end now that Toronto’s most sought after campaign manager, John Laschinger, is joining Team Pantalone. He’s the man behind David Miller’s electoral successes and was ready to back Giambrone before his sexty flame-out. With Laschinger chairing the Joe Pantalone campaign, lefty support is starting to mount, making it less likely that another candidate will emerge to challenge George Smitherman.
