Every logo represents taxes, rents, employment, salaries and civic contribution by leaders and owners who felt it important enough to demonstrate their support for LRT.

Dear Mayor Eisenberger and Councillors,
As you continue to discuss Hamilton's LRT project, I want to be sure that the LogoMotion poster is added to the official record.
WE SUPPORT LRT poster
As some of you know, the poster was started by a one engaged resident, me, and was received with enthusiasm by nearly 300 organizations and businesses throughout the City of Hamilton who wished to lend their support to the LRT project.
Using social media to get the word out, organizations and businesses whose logos appear on the poster reached out to me and sent images of their logos. The compilation is, in my view, impressive for such an organic and grassroots initiative.
As you are well aware, every logo represents taxes, rents, employment, salaries and civic contribution by leaders and owners who felt it important enough to demonstrate their support for LRT.
Some might say that a logo does not necessarily represent the voices of all employees, which is true. But I assure you that in every case, the owners and the leaders of these organizations included on the poster made the formal decision to actively support LRT, such is their belief in the future of our City.
I hope that you will do the same.
Hamilton's LRT plan is under serious threat. Please show your LRT support at the March 28, 2017 General Issues Committee meeting and urge Council not to ruin this once-in-a-generation opportunity.
