|Bio||"Wherever you are, is wherever I am!" - Brenda
Fully two years into her four-year term, calls and emails to the Ward 11 councillor continue to climb to record highs, and that's because Brenda has quickly proven herself to be an expert problem-solver, working with fellow Hamiltonians to make our City a great place to raise a child. From small matters that affect only a few Ward 11 residents, to issues which impact the city as a whole, Councillor Brenda Johnson is always hard at work. "Wherever you are, is wherever I am," Brenda says

You're welcome to join Brenda at the official opening celebration on Sunday, April 21 from 2-4pm
After a 10-year saga, working with other councillors, Brenda kept her biggest campaign promise which was to retain Area Rating. This means that residents pay for the services you get, but don't pay for those you don't receive.

Brenda worked tirelessly to ensure that we now enjoy the lowest budget increase since amalgamation.

A new, not-for-profit, resident-controlled co-operative worked with Brenda to save Newport Marina from possible bankruptcy and receive a break on taxes in the process. As reported in the Stoney Creek News (Feb 1, 2012), ‘ "It's been a 5-year drama," area councillor Brenda Johnson said. "The residents were absolutely thrilled that it got through Council. This was researched, it was hammered out for six long months to get this, so that we can now start seeing the tax bills getting paid.
Late last year, Council approved Brenda's motion to re-instate compassionate grants for both the Flood Relief Program and the Reverse Back-Flow Sewer Valve Program. This came as welcome relief to flood victims in upper Stoney Creek and Binbrook. Although much has been done, still more work is needed and residents can be assured that this remains a top priority for Brenda.
