"Hamilton did successfully vote for a fairly progressive slate of Lower City councillors. And we did vote in for a mayor descended from progressive Amsterdam."

Jeez, I'm not sure spending your first six years of life in 1950s Amsterdam qualifies someone as a "progressive." Eisenberger seems to me fairly competent but not particularly forward-looking or risk-taking. I'm not sure that his re-election means Hamiltonians are ready for change. More likely the opposite.

It's true that the lower city councillors seem willing to explore new ways of doing things, and I think they're good representatives of their constituents. They aren't a majority on council, however.
