We are on a 2 show winning streak in our ongoing series, “Why should I vote for you?” and have a 3rd confirmed.
The show designed to introduce you to your city councillor and their challengers, has had an incumbent councillor show up two days in a row.
This after none, zero, zippo, of the Hamilton incumbent city councillors from the old city showed up on The Scott Thompson Show to talk to you their constituents. (That’s Wards 2, 4,5,6,7, and 8)
Why it is the suburban or rural city councillors show up and the old inner city councillor’s run away scared making up any reason not to show, if they even return our calls?
With no sign of a city councillor until we got to Ward 10, it makes you wonder what kind of puppet show we have going on in the chambers and who’s the head Pinocchio.
With the first two incumbents brave enough to show being women, it certainly does confirm we have an old boys club down there (albeit neutered).
Clearly the web councillors in Wards 8 and under have spun does not extend to or influence the common sense of those outside the old city.
But they do influence enough to sway any vote in their favour, until now.
With the vacancy of courageous councillors like Brian McHattie, Brad Clark (who are running for mayor) and the passing of Bernie Morelli hopefully the new blood from attrition isn’t poisoned by this controlling mediocrity.
But only you can change things…
I’m Scott Thompson.
Wednesday on The Scott Thompson Show!
“Why should I vote for you?” Ward 12.
