The Mayoral Race

Ward 1 City Councillor Brian McHattie was the first candidate to publicly declare a run this past fall.

His campaign volunteers state he will register at 10:30 a.m. this morning.

It wouldn’t be an election in Hamilton without perpetual candidate Brother Michael Baldasaro. Baldasaro says “I will run for the Office of Mayor and Chief Municipal Magistrate.”

Former Mayor **Fred Eisenberger **says he’s running and is expected to register early.

Incumbent Mayor **Bob Bratina **will be running for reelection. He hasn’t stated when he plans to register.
