It's appalling that not only did fewer than 40 percent of eligible voters exercise their right to vote, but those that did vote chose to elect the encumbants (with a couple of exceptions). HELLO!! It's the encumbants, many of them multiple term, that have dug us into this pit we are now in. Ward 2 had 19 candidates to choose from and elected Jason Farr....UNBELIEVABLE. If you do nothing else for yourself, check out Raise the Hammer, the Hamiltonian, and Citizens At City Hall (CATCH) on a regular basis. I would like to be able to also recommend The Hamilton Spectator, but their coverage on civic matters is not only spotty at best, but somewhat biased as well. If someone lifted your wallet from your pocket you would be outraged and demand police action. City Council has the power to lift hundreds of dollars out of your pocket on a regular basis. I just don't understand the apathy when so many in our city are suffering in one way or another and City Council appears to be able to operate with impunity.
