John-Paul Danko CBC Hamilton – In The News – 13 People Running In Ward 7

Dear Ward 7 Neighbours:

With three weeks until the close of nominations, there are already 13 people registered to run in the Hamilton Central Mountain Ward 7 by-election for City Council.

Of the thirteen currently registered, only four actually live in Ward 7.

(John-Paul Danko, Tim Gordon, Phil Bradshaw and Uzma Qureshi live in Ward 7, in case you are wondering.)

CBC Hamilton recently ran an article on the crowded field of Ward 7 candidates, highlighting how important every vote will be.

You can read full the piece here:

13 People Running In Ward 7 – and That’s Just The Beginning

Here are a few excerpts:

…whoever wins will likely only get in by a few hundred votes, says Henry Jacek, a McMaster University political science professor. The winner will carry weight at the table, but it’s hard to get people interested in byelections.

That means it could come down to who has more friends in the ward, or who has just a few more volunteers.

Not surprisingly, most of the candidates who live in the ward say it matters, while those who don’t say it doesn’t.

I’d like to know what you think – would you vote for a Ward 7 representative who doesn’t actually live in Ward 7?

Is living on “the mountain” close enough?

Personally, I believe that your Ward 7 City Councillor should certainly live in Ward 7. If you don’t live here you cannot be personally invested in what happens here – it is as simple as that.

Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!

Sincerely,

John-Paul Danko

Having worked with John-Paul on a project recently I was most impressed with his willingness to look at a problem from every angle and perspective, this is not a guy who is afraid to think outside the box and advocate for what he believes in.

I met JP Danko at the Hamilton Citizen Jury event at Mohawk College, and I have to say, I wholeheartedly endorse him as Candidate for Ward 7.

My personal opinion is he is a great balance for the Mountain, and understands and knows the challenges that lie ahead. He is an excellent diplomat that can engage Mountain residents and Lower City residents. He has the Concession BIA in his ward, the only true urbanized street on the Mountain, so this is a very important anchor of urbanization to market the rest of Ward 7.

JP's passion for city planning and infrastructure coupled with his extensive business experience will make him a force to be reconned with on City Council.

I’m endorsing John-Paul Danko as the independent candidate for Ward 7.

Ward 7 needs a city councillor that represents everyone, not just Conservative, Liberal, or NDP supporters.
