Statement: 2018 Municipal Election Candidate John-Paul Danko Looks to Fill Open Ward 8 Seat
– FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
Hamilton, Ontario (Monday, July 30, 2018) – Nominations for Hamilton’s 2018 Municipal Election closed on Friday with six candidates in the race for Ward 8 City Councillor. With former Ward 8 Councillor Terry Whitehead nominated to run in Ward 14, Ward 8 is now an open race which will see a new member elected to city council on October 22nd. This will be the first election using the updated boundaries for the new Ward 8: from Garth Street to Upper Wellington, from the mountain brow to the hydro corridor just south of Rymal Road. This new ward on Hamilton mountain and the elimination of a rural ward in Flambourough, could shift the entire voting dynamic on City Council. The new Ward 8 consists of approximately 45% from the old Ward 7 and 55% from the old Ward 8. After finishing just 92 votes short of former Ward 7 Councillor Donna Skelly in the 2016 Ward 7 by-election, John-Paul Danko promises to be one of the leading candidates for Ward 8.
“Now that nominations have closed, I want to welcome all candidates to the race for Ward 8. With an extra ward added to Hamilton mountain, this is a very important election for Ward 8 and the city. The new Ward 8 Councillor will have a critical vote on many important issues, directly influencing the direction our City takes over the next four years. During the 2016 by-election and through my work in the community since, I have had the opportunity to speak with thousands of residents. I am looking forward to meeting as many more Ward 8 residents as I can over the next few months. I invite all residents to contact me directly to discuss any issues that they would like to see addressed by the next City Council. I can be reached though my campaign website (http://www.JPDanko.com), Twitter (@JohnPaulDanko) or by phone (905-818-5711).”
