The Hamilton Civic League would like to invite you to our first speaker series event that will be held this Monday, February 22nd at 7 p.m.
The Hamilton Civic League would like a better understanding of what priorities Hamiltonians think our city should be setting for the next four years. What type of city do we want? What is the long-term vision? Do we have the best people leading us to our goals?
Entitled "Hamilton’s Halloween Election; Unmasking Candidates and Issues", the first event of this series will provide a fairly broad range of potential topics - - "Your Vision" will have a panel of diverse individuals who each claim an interest in what the future of Hamilton has to offer.
Larry Di Ianni, former mayor of Hamilton
Jeremy Frieburger, Executive Director of the Imperial Cotton Centre for the Arts
Ryan McGreal, Editor of RaiseTheHammer.org
Mark Chamberlain, Jobs Prosperity Collaborative/2007's Distinguished Citizen of the Year
Don McLean, Environment Hamilton member/Friends of Red Hill Valley
These free monthly public forums are staged to inform, empower and engage voters in preparation for the upcoming municipal election. The panelists have been specifically chosen to articulate their vision and to respond to the concerns of the community. The goal is to begin the dialogue to awaken our community to the issues that need to be considered ahead of the October 22nd election.
The event will be held at the Crossfire Assembly, 458 King Street E. (near Locke) in the Strathcona neighbourhood. On-site parking is available and refreshments will be served. Any questions? Feel free to contact us through email or via facebook.
Be informed. Be empowered. Be engaged.
See you on the 22nd!
