QUOTED: Doug Ford’s daughter Krista on whether she’ll be the third Ford at city hall

Would consider running if city hall upgraded their fitness facility. My personal health will always come first. :) ‪#gymjunkie

Krista Ford, a personal trainer and former Lingerie Football League player, on whether she’d ever join her dad, Doug Ford, and uncle Rob at city hall. Krista isn’t the only Ford with political ambitions: her father recently said he’d ditch Toronto council to run for a provincial seat should Dalton McGuinty call an election this summer, and joked about enlisting another family member to cover the federal political scene. While Krista’s tweet was obviously tongue-in-cheek, the idea of a city hall career isn’t out of the question—last year, when The Grid asked her if she planned on getting into politics, her response was: “Ha. No. Well, not yet.” (h/t Torontoist)
