Seine Mind

I live in Hamilton. The GM of Planning and Economic Development doesn't.

I pay taxes in Hamilton. He doesn't.

I spend money on services (restaurants, dry cleaning, groceries, hair cuts, etc.) in Hamilton. He doesn't.

I offer a citizen's comments on Planning and Economic Development decisions. He makes the Planning and Economic Development decisions on which I comment.

When I lived in Toronto, although I grew up in Hamilton and spent the first 5 years of my working life working in Hamilton, I never offered comments or observations about how to live in Hamilton. He lives in Kitchener and implements decisions for Hamiltonians that affect how they live in Hamilton.

I believe we should hire the best, no matter where they are from. I also think, when they are at the very highest level in the city bureaucracy, they should consider living in the city for which they establish and implement policies that will affect every single citizen in that city. This isn't just any job at any corporation, this is a top job with the Corporation of the City of Hamilton.
