Fred Dominelli appointed as Councillor for Ward 17-Davenport
Fred Dominelli was appointed Councillor for Ward 17-Davenport tonight at a
special meeting of City Council. Dominelli fills the vacancy left by Betty
Disero, who resigned her seat in March. The term of the appointment ends on
November 30, 2003.

Provincial legislation gives city councils the option of holding a by-election
or appointing an individual to fill a vacant council seat. Toronto City Council
adopted an appointment process to fill this vacancy.

There were 12 individuals interested in the vacancy. The vote at Council
tonight required only one ballot, with 20 votes for Fred Dominelli and 12 votes
for Rob Davis. A simple majority of votes is required to declare a winner.
