While I don't agree with Baystreeter's comments about Eisenberger (he's worlds better than DiIanni, Wade, or any of the other jokes who've graced council in recent years), to suggest that he either run or office or "shut up" is laughable. Civic life is about the free exchange of ideas, even if they're critical (this city's leaders have been suffering from a sore lack of enough criticism for far too long). Running for office(beyond a joke candidacy), and office itself to a much larger degree, is an extremely exclusive venture, which is completely off-limits to virtually everyone in Hamilton (save a few dozen out of 500 000). Regardless of this, the rest of us still live in Hamilton and must live with the decisions made "on our behalf", and thus are entitled to speak our minds about it.
