Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wasted no time relaunching his bid for re-election, officially filing his nomination papers Thursday shortly after the clerk’s office opened on the first day for acceptance of nominations.

“I’ve got the strongest track record, I’ve been the best mayor this city has ever had,” Ford told reporters shortly after submitting his nomination papers and officially declaring his candidacy in the Oct. 27 municipal election.

When asked about the personal problems that have dogged him throughout 2013, Ford, in a testy exchange with reporters, responded: “That’s all personal. Let the people speak for themselves.”
