City Council recessed its public session and met as Committee of the Whole in closed session on October 30, 2012, and considered confidential information on this Item as it relates to personal information about identifiable individuals being considered for appointment to the Toronto Transit Commission Board.

 

On October 30, 2012, the following Members of Council nominated public members for appointment to the Toronto Transit Commission:

 

a.         Councillor Joe Mihevc moved that Applicant #34 be appointed to the Toronto Transit Commission Board.

 

b.         Councillor Anthony Perruzza moved that Applicant #267 be appointed to the Toronto Transit Board.

 

There being six (6) candidates for four (4) positions, City Council conducted a ballot for the appointment of four (4) public members to the Toronto Transit Commission Board.

 

The Speaker asked the City Clerk to instruct the Members on the balloting process.

The City Clerk advised Members of Council as follows:

 

"We will now proceed to the balloting for public members of the Toronto Transit Commission.

 

There are four positions to elect.

 

It requires a majority of ballots cast to be elected to one of the positions.  Any candidate receiving a majority of ballots cast will be declared elected.

 

If fewer than four people receive a majority of votes on the first ballot, Council will conduct a second ballot for the remaining positions with the remaining candidates.   On a second ballot, only those declared elected are removed from consideration.  All other candidates are still eligible.

 

We are about to distribute the ballots to you.

 

The ballots contain four blank spaces.   Please indicate your vote by printing the number of a candidate in the space provided.

 

Please print clearly and legibly. If I cannot determine your intention for any reason, including your handwriting, any votes in dispute will not be counted.

 

You may vote for up to and including four people.

 

If you vote for more than four people, your ballot will be spoiled, and none of your votes will be counted.

 

Please write the number of the candidate, not the name.  If you write the name your ballot will be spoiled and not counted.

 

Secret ballots are prohibited by law.  You must print your name and sign your ballot in the space provided.  If you do not, your ballot will be spoiled, and none of your votes will be counted.

 

You must remain seated during the voting process until all ballots have been collected.

 

When you are finished voting, please fold your ballot in half and place it on the ledge in front of your desk for collection.   We will collect the ballots when all Members have finished voting.

 

Members, the voting process is about to begin.  Please take your seats and remain seated during the voting process.

 

We will now distribute the ballots."

 

The City Clerk distributed the ballots to the Members of Council.  Once all ballots had been cast and collected, the City Clerk tallied the results of the ballot.

 

The City Clerk announced the results of the ballot for the appointment of four (4) public members to the Toronto Transit Commission Board conducted on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, as follows:
