Please allow me, as a resident of Ward 1, to thank Brian McHattie for putting his job and local citizens first.
I recently attended a public meeting regarding some issues in our neighbourhood and a rep from the city was there making a presentation.
At one point the city worker stopped and mentioned Brian: "I hope you all realize how lucky you all are to have a Councillor like this who understands cities and urban issues."
We all chuckled and said, "we certainly do!"
I can only imagine the sort of nonsense this worker has seen in other ward meetings throughout the city.
As for today's Spec column choosing to hold up our east end Councillors as examples for Mr McHattie to follow, I only have one response. Go check out the east end.
Councillor McHattie could attend all the boring, useless meetings in the world if the people of Ward 1 were content to let our community become another hollowed-out part of urban Hamilton.
We elected him to represent us and work for us. Thank you, Mr. Dreschel, for reassuring us that he is doing a fabulous job and exactly what the local citizens want.
I'd be worried if McHattie was earning praise from the local paper. As long as he isn't, I know he's doing a great job!
