The Hamilton Civic League is on the lookout for people in Hamilton who want to be informed and engaged in the next municipal election.
They are seeking students to help with a nonpartisan survey, the results will be a tool for voters to help them make an informed choice.
The stadium debate and ensuing lack of result from the politicians involved has awaken a giant in this city that will be up well past the Pam Am Games.
(People are fed up with a lack of vision and a mentality that can’t see beyond the city limits.)
Citizens want fresh faces and new ideas that are representative of the revitalization that is going on.
This council has fallen behind the city and its abilities. A revitalization is happening despite their short sightedness.
A revitalization that is more a result of geography, available land and a vibrant arts community than this bunch of lunch boxes.
Yes there are a few shiny apples there, but they don’t speak loud enough.
The Leagues “What happened in Hamilton” campaign will hopefully make the next decade better than the previous.
And it starts with voter engagement and turnout.
Hamilton has turned the corner, it’s time to do the same with city council, and catch up with what the NEW Hamilton really is.
(Young thinking and vibrant energy creating a new city. Not a blast from the past who hates change, and Toronto.
Haven’t we outgrown that?)
