            With a minority government at Queen's Park, a new provincial election could potentially happen at any time.

            While it still remains unclear exactly when Ontario's voters will head to the polls, one thing that is certain is Tom Rakocevic's name will again be on the ballot in York West.

            Rakocevic, Executive Assistant to Toronto Councillor Anthony Perruzza, mounted a strong challenge to current MPP Mario Sergio in the 2011 provincial election, capturing 35% of the vote.

            Rakocevic accepted the nomination in a packed event at Elia Middle School, on April 23rd.

            Andrea Horwath, the leader of Ontario’s NDP and Andrew Cash, federal Member of Parliament for Davenport were also at the meeting to support Rakocevic.

            Since the last election, Rakocevic said that his team has been working extremely hard in the community, knocking on doors, and hosting meetings on issues such as auto insurance reform as well as clinics to help seniors.

            "I've lived all my life in York West and I'm proud of my community," Rakocevic said. "When I am elected, I will provide the active representation that my community deserves.”
