Sam Merulla, Councillor for Ward 4, has lost his bid to be the candidate for the Ontario NDP in Hamilton East-Stoney Creek. Paul Miller, a former Stoney Creek councillor, has won the nomination instead.
Merulla's bid has been dogged by controversy, from his former promise not to abandon his council seat to accusations by other nominees that the party was showing favouritism in the nomination process.
Miller will run against Tara Crugnale, the Conservative candidate, and an as-yet unnamed Liberal candidate since Jennifer Mossop announced she will not seek re-election.
