I am grateful to the family, friends, and loyal supporters who generously contributed their time and effort to our campaign during this election season. Your hard work and late nights, day after day never went unnoticed. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
During my campaign travels, I met so many new people in Hamilton and fell more in love with the city than ever before.
A few months ago, I was at 2% in the polls and the thought of making this race even competitive felt like a far reach. However, for me, the LRT issue was just far too important for the voters to not have a choice. I knew, If I did not run I would regret it.
I am proud of the campaign we ran. While the campaign was fiercely fought, we did not get personal, we stuck to the issues and we got people to think and start talking about the direction they wanted our great city to take.
I want to congratulate Mayor Fred Eisenberger. Now we might not agree on everything and we might not share the exact vision for the city but one thing Fred and I have in common is – we both love this city and its people with all our hearts.
This may not have been the result we wanted but it was the result that the voters of Hamilton have made and we all have to respect the voters’ choice.
I am not going anywhere and I will be here to continue to fight for our city every day.
