Dear Ward 7 Neighbours:
Back at the beginning of November, the Spectator published an article about who might be running for Scott Duvall’s empty City Council seat in the Ward 7 Hamilton Central Mountain byelection.
At the time only Doug Farraway and Geraldine McMullen had publicly announced their intention to run for City Council. However, the Spectator points out that as many as 20 Ward 7 candidates may be on the ballet.
You can read the original Hamilton Spectator piece here:
Here are a few excerpts:
Among those who have expressed an interest in joining Farraway and McMullen are Hamilton Mountain Liberal candidate Shawn Burt; former Ward 7 candidates Mark-Alan Whittle, Mark Harrington and Keith Beck; McMaster economics student and Conservative Party booster Hans Zuriel; former Liberal nomination candidate Howard Rabb; John-Paul Danko, spouse of Hamilton Ward 7 public school trustee Dawn Danko; and Ward 6 public school trustee Kathy Archer, founder of the Mountain Kidz Klub. Archer also works part-time as Giggles the Clown, which would bring an interesting vocation to the political antics at 71 Main St. W.
Farraway, who penned a column in the Hamilton Mountain News for a decade, considers himself among the front-runners.
“After 36 years in radio I think I have name and face recognition.”
John-Paul Danko – Hamilton City Council Candidate
