Paul Cheng responds to unfounded claims by the London Free Press. Asks Londoners to vote based on facts, not innuendo.

For the second time in 72 hours, the London Free Press has printed unfounded allegations regarding Paul Cheng’s character, and campaign expenses. These allegations are speculative and untrue. Amongst all the unflattering words, the most untrue statement printed was that I do not respect City Hall.

I do in fact respect City Hall and in turn, the citizens of London. Being Mayor is not an easy task to take on, but it is too important to leave in the hands of those who simply want to further their own personal agenda. We must work towards what is best for our citizens, and city; for our taxpayers, and for our children. My vision is to work with administration, members of council and the community, to make London a place we can all be proud to call home.

London needs leadership and direction. We must create jobs, opportunities by ending the bureaucracy and red tape at City Hall. By building London’s future through tourism, alleviate poverty and homelessness, helping London’s most vulnerable. They deserve a voice. Lastly, we must halt BRT. We will create a comprehensive mass transit plan that works for all Londoners. We have options.

Last night, I was disappointed by the negative publicity I received on the pages of the London Free Press. I would like to make it clear, I am within the legal limits of campaign expenditure, and am in full compliance with Ontario’s Municipal Elections Act.

Media news articles, as opposed to editorials and opinion pieces, are supposed to be objective and factual, not bias and misleading. Let the citizens of London choose the best candidate to lead our city, based on facts, not innuendo.

Let’s work together, pro-actively, and professionally, to make London a city of opportunity, and to end the stigma the office of Mayor holds.

On Monday, October 22nd, it’s in Londoners hands. Your voice, and vote matter. Vote Paul Cheng, for Mayor.

Truly,

Paul Cheng
