|Scime, Danya||Yes||Yes, I will work diligently to involve the Citizens of Dundas and the entire City of Hamilton to be proud of what we have and bring us together for improvement. Cleaning up our boarded up buildings, encouraging mixed usage within them to have an appealing streetscape. Engaging our students in healthy competitions between the Wards to 'pitch in and clean up' our streets, to plant our flowers, to have the feeling of belonging. Revitalizing downtown and our West Harbor will further add to the beauty Hamilton has yet to uncover. To encourage visitors and commuters to use our transit systems by having our Tourist destinations also work together and have passes for our transit to take them to several of our amazing attractions in one day...A trip to Dundurn Castle, then to Royal Botanical Gardens and then downtown Dundas for a visit at Carnagie Hall and lunch at one of our great restaurants... If we show pride in our City, newcomers will want to come and grow with us towards a positive future. The City is a diamond in the rough with many gems already uncovered and many more waiting to be unearthed.|
|Tammer, Ron||Yes||As to your second question, I would certainly work to make Hamilton a model of progressive thinking. The Vision 20/20 concept that has been tucked away for a while should be the basis for out City's growth, and I would help steer us back in that direction. Lessons in green technology and sustainable development can be learned from European cities. Incentives should be offered to developers to restore heritage buildings and brown fields, instead of getting subsidized servicing to the green fields that they buy up and pave over.
I firmly believe that the future of Hamilton depends on attracting smart growth and providing living wage jobs to its people. By showing investors that we are a progressive city that is open to new ideas and business opportunities, we can make it possible to allow all of our citizens to provide for themselves and their families.
