Joey Coleman: Removed HECFI Board member supports #HamOnt Council takeover

Removed HECFI Board member supports #HamOnt Council takeover

HECFI Board member Vito Sgro, a well-known Charted Accountant and political organizer, is supporting City Council’s decision to take over governance of HECFI.

In an email to City Councillors tonight Mr. Sgro says the mess at HECFI was worse than he expected when appointed by Council in spring 2011 to the HECFI Board.

His support of Council’s decision is the first statement of support from a sitting member of the now defunct HECFI Board.

Mr. Sgro sites sat on the Hamilton Port Authority board and chaired the Port Authority’s Audit Committee. His term on the Port Authority started in 2005 and ended in 2008.

Mr. Sgro joined the Board with at the same time as well-known Hamilton Realtor and former MPP Judy Marsales.

This post is a corrected version. I incorrectly stated that Mr. Sgro was a present member of the Port Authority Board. His term ended in 2008.  The error was reported using the MediaBugs plugin. Read the MediaBugs log
