About 250 people will gather this evening in Hamilton to pay tribute to one of the city’s longest serving politicians.
Liberal M-P-P and former Flamborough Mayor Ted McMeekin is being honoured for 26 years of public service during an event at LIUNA Station.
McMeekin says it’s really 26 years and counting.
He notes that has not ruled out running again in the next provincial election, saying he’ll continue serving the community as long as he’s healthy and able to make a difference.
Premier Kathleen Wynne, Finance Minister Charles Sousa and Hamilton Mayor Fred Eisenberger will be among those on hand for the tribute.
Proceeds will support CityKids and a Dundas youth centre.
