Sweeny for City Council

Keith Sweeny interacts with neighbor

Today I was asked to take a few shots of Keith Sweeny for his campaign. He's running for Toronto's city council in the upcoming November election. On our way to do a shoot in front of some recognizable buildings in the neighborhood we bumped into people who seemed to pop out of the wood work just to talk to him.

It was like that small neighborhood feeling where everyone seemed to know everyone or at least everyone seemed to know Keith. What might have been a five minute walk turned into half an hour. Conversations ranged from telling a guy where to get a free suit for a job interview to telling some women where to look for voting information on the web. It's nice to see that there are people that are genuinely helpful still left in the world.

So as a favor to Keith if you're in the North York neighborhood look him up. If you feel he's up to the task go to your local polling station and help vote him in.
