Dear Ward 7 Neighbours:

Its official – my nomination papers for the Ward 7 Central Mountain seat on Hamilton City Council were filed this morning at City Hall.

I was joined with Doug Farraway and Howard Rabb to be first in line to officially declare for Ward 7 in 2016.

We have issued the following press release to all media outlets:


Engineer John-Paul Danko. P. Eng. Announces Candidacy for Central Mountain Council Seat

Hamilton, Ontario – December 10th, 2015 – 38 year old Central Mountain resident and Professional Engineer John-Paul Danko promises to bring his career experience building bridges (literally) to City Council if elected in the Ward 7 byelection (scheduled for March 21st).  Mr. Danko filed his nomination paperwork this morning (December 10th, 2015) at City Hall.

“I don’t see a seat on council as a career move or a political stepping stone. I am a Professional Engineer and a small business owner – not a politician. I solve complicated problems for a living and I would be honored to bring that same approach to City Council.”

“I am running for council because I believe that we need a Councillor with real world experience in industry and business – someone non-partisan with deep roots in Ward 7.  If elected, I would be the only engineer on Council as we tackle a $3.3B infrastructure deficit, $1.2B in LRT construction and over $1B in annual development permits.” 

“I was born at Henderson Hospital. I grew up on the Mountain. I went to school on the Mountain. I graduated from McMaster University and now I am raising my family on the Central Mountain. I am your neighbour in Ward 7.”


John-Paul Danko, P. Eng.
