As a Richmond City Councillor, it has been my pleasure to serve the people of Hamilton, one of Richmond’s most valuable and unique communities. Almost every Wednesday I visit this neighbourhood to meet with individuals and work on the issues that are facing our residents.
As we move through 2008, I wanted to take this opportunity to convey my core belief that the Hamilton neighborhood deserves quality services, just like any other community of our city. While some, even your current council liaison, have deemed services for your neighbourhood as “out there”, I prefer to look at Hamilton as part of our larger community, the same as any other.
As part of that belief, I’ve been a long time advocate for building a full-service Hamilton library branch, developing increased child care spaces, and enhancing policing with a more equal distribution of resources. It’s time council joined with my Richmond First colleagues and myself and walked the walk to ensure your tax dollars are reflected in the community in which you live.
Your community deserves not to be playacted to, as has happened so often in the past, but rather deserves action. Together, we will improve services in the Hamilton Community.
