Toronto Drag Queen Runs For Mayor
 
ONLINE:  TUESDAY MARCH 21, 4:53 PM EST (GMT-5).

From 365gay.com

'A Supermodel for a Super City' is the campaign slogan popular Toronto drag queen Enza Supermodel has chosen for her 2000 run for the mayor's seat.

At the moment she is the only candidate running against equally popular Mayor Mel Lastman.

Lastman, the world's longest serving mayor, has not officially declared he will seek re-election, but few doubt he will run.

If elected she will wear a tiara with her chain of office.
 
 
Enza 'Supermodel' Anderson first gained city-wide notoriety in 1998 when she was the front page color picture kissing Mayor Lastman while he read the proclamation declaring Pride Week in Toronto.

She got her face back on the front page the following year struggling to kiss a reluctant Lastman at the same event, and again, sitting with the mayor atop a vintage car watergunning the 750-thousand people lining the Gay Pride parade route.

When controversial new Police Chief Julian Fantino attempted to quell concerns about his record at a public meeting of the Gay Community Enza was there in a police officers shirt, and once again got herself on the front page of the Toronto Sun snuggling up to a red faced Fantino.

Now, she says she wants to be mayor.  The Leggy blonde paid her registration fee to run in Canada's largest city, and the race is expected to be colourful.

Enza has already developed a platform.  In an interview with Toronto's GLTO she says she would like to create a red-light district and put a tax on prostitution.  She says Lastman has done a great job as mayor but it's time for some young blood in the city.

She says if elected she will wear a tiara with her chain of office.
