  1. A fair Municipal election or not? In any event it’s a shame that the Salvation Army aren’t going to be relocated in time to avoid any possibilities e.g. “suspicions / shenanigans.”

    It will take some miracle workers to clean up the financial & legal mess the previous bunch of missfits are leaving behind.

  4. Mockingjay says:

    It will take a BIGGER miracle to clean up the S!@# this current bunch of misfits are putting us in.

      LOL

      They are fixing the problems your mates put us in…assuming you are referring to the OBA.

      Team Hamilton was just another PLP massive fail but hidden by putting forward a PLP surrogate as the Mayor.

      Thank goodness the last vestiges are almost gone.

    Goodbye Team Hamilton. Please allow the door to hit you on your way out.

    Will be interesting who puts their names forward to run. There isn’t much time.

    Is Graham going to have his portrait put up in City Hall?

    • SUZANNE says:

      Maybe Graham can take a selfie for the wall – that is about as much as I am willing to pay for as a rate payer. Can’t wait to vote these wannabes out of office. Oh, and hey when and where did the “Black Mayors Conference” get held – think we all missed that one, huh!!
