He's even gotten himself a slogan: "Ford More Years."
The problem? Ford's record isn't what he claims. The Toronto Star's Daniel Dale counted five fibs on Day 1 of his re-election campaign.
Ford claimed he's got the best attendance record on council. His absenteeism rate of 17% means two-thirds of councillors have better a record than Ford.
Ford said annual property tax increases haven't exceeded 1.75% over the past four years. Property taxes went up 2.5% in 2012 and 2% in 2013, explains Dale.
Ford said Toronto's unemployment rate has dropped from 11% when he took office to 7% today, but Dale dug up a City of Toronto document showing the rate jumped from 9.4%to 9.8% as of October.
Spending like "drunken sailors" (not in a drunken stupor!)
Ford said the city went on a spending spree after City Council stripped him of his powers in November. The proposed city budget for 2014 remains unchanged.
Saving taxpayers $1 billion
Dale did the number-crunching, and discovered the claim "relies on dubious math, exaggerations and omissions."
