I am new to Hamilton and Ward 3, having moved here this past spring. I have had a chance to observe my new city and I have to say that there is much work that needs to be done. It seems to me that the Pearl Company has been trying to make a big difference, yet they are blocked by a tired and ineffective city council. I have lived in four other cities, all of which have had their challenges but one thing that was common amongst them all; when council leaves the city to rot, then it's time to kick the bums out. I am not advocating for any candidate but I can not say I am in favour of the incumbent. He should have charged to the Pearl Company's rescue long time ago not after the citizens protested and it has become an election issue. I hope the citizens of this ward and the city exercise their rights and send a loud and clear message to those in city hall. On a side note, I don't see the neighbourhood associations doing much either. Holding hands singing "Kumbaya" will not solve the cities woes. Proactive clean up projects would be a good start and might actually make it a decent place for all it's citizens.
