Ward 03
CandidateBrief ResponseFull Response
Black, Bob Yes Yes I have accepted donations from unions, as well as individuals I have been endorsed by the Canadian Labour Congress as well as the Hamilton District Labour Council, I have accepted these donations because it has proven to be expensive.
DiMillo, Mark Yes I will not accept campaign contributions from unions or companies that are under contract directly or indirectly with the City of Hamilton. However, if a friend of mine who runs a small business wants to contribute from his business account, no problem.
Gibson, Sean Yes To date I have accepted donations from family, residents, friends, local business in the neighborhood and Local 5167. My mother has worked at McMaster University since I was 13 years old; her union has always looked after us and represents the best interest of their members. Local 5167is in my ward and their support is something I welcome.
McGrimmond, Wilamina No No corporations or unions. I have not asked to give money, and I have been a union member for years.

I can not take money from either as I want to work for the people instead.
Morelli, Bernie Maybe To date, I am financing my own campaign and have not accepted any funds at this point.

As in the past, I will file a final report and follow the rules as outlined in the Municipal Elections Act.
Tetley, Paul No I'm not accepting corporate, or union donations. I believe the role of the councillor is to represent the interests of the residents of Ward 3 and the City of Hamilton.
