In the News – Q&A With The Hamiltonian – Ward 7 City Council Candidate John-Paul Danko

Dear Ward 7 Neighbours:

The Hamiltonian is running a question and answer series with all candidates registered for the Ward 7 City Council byelection.

You can read read my Q&A at The Hamiltonian here:

7 – Candidate John-Paul Danko

Here is an excerpt:

It is an exciting time to live in Hamilton; we have one of the most diverse economies in Canada and we’re on the cusp of a massive investment in new public infrastructure.

Yet, it still feels like Hamilton is stuck in neutral.

I am running for Ward 7 Councilor because I believe that we can do better. I come from outside of Hamilton’s political circles and hope to bring a fresh new perspective on what is great about our City and where we can improve from here.

I am running for Ward 7 Councilor because I believe that we need representatives with real world experience in industry and business. As a professional civil engineer, I solve complicated problems for a living and I would be honoured to bring that same approach to City Council.

Finally, I am running for Ward 7 Councilor because I believe that our Council representative should be personally invested in our community. I live here. I am raising my family here. I am your neighbor in Ward 7.

Sincerely,

John-Paul Danko

WHAT YOUR NEIGHBOURS SAY ABOUT JOHN-PAUL DANKO

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.

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 firmly believe that we need fresh faces, NEW ideas in this city from top to bottom in order to move forward.
My first impression.....you got my vote on March 21st.

I wish John-Paul Danko had been the Councillor for Ward 7 during the ARC, he has already proven he wouldn't have been afraid to get involved with the process, get his hands dirty and work with the community! I will be voting for him on March 21st!

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.
