Doug Ford had third-worst attendance, missed 53 per cent of 2014 city council votes - 2014-09-16
Ford, the first-term councillor for Ward 2 (Etobicoke North), was absent for 30 per cent of the 7,813 total votes during Rob Ford's four-year mayoralty. Only veterans Giorgio Mammoliti (49 per cent) and Ron Moeser (39 per cent) were worse, and both were suffering health problems for part of the term.
Before Doug Ford replaced his brother on the mayoral election ballot on Friday, he spoke eagerly of his intention to flee city hall and a council he had come to describe as "dysfunctional." His attendance deteriorated dramatically in 2014: he missed 53 per cent of the 1,927 votes taken.
