Fred Eisenberger joins race for mayor


By Matthew Van Dongen / The Hamilton Spectator

Fred Eisenberger is officially in the race.

The 61-year-old was mayor from 2006 to 2010.

He was defeated by Bob Bratina in that 2010 re-election bid and came in third behind another former mayor, Larry Di Ianni. Di Ianni is also rumoured to be mulling another run.

Eisenberger will shoulder into an increasingly crowded field – but one that doesn’t include current Mayor Bratina, who has announced he won’t run.

Other candidates in the race include former alderman Don Ross, current councillors Brad Clark and Brian McHattie, perennial candidate Michael Baldasaro and rookie Crystal Lavigne.

  2. Bonjour and hello to all city of Hamilton members, citizens, residences and visitors. My name is Ricky Tavares and I will be your mayor of Hamilton Ontario Canada in the near future. I was born here in city of Hamilton at St.Josephs hospital. I am here to announce now and to make this statement very public now that I will be the first mayor in Canada willing and proud to work for a minimum wage salary. I love Hamilton and I must protect our city. My colleagues, financial advisors and I have a 5 year plan to implement and generate 1 trillion dollars into the Hamilton city hall building within the next 5 years. I am sorry to announce now that I will only be your mayor for 1 term because this city is too small for me to lead and guide into a productive population. I will be moving to Ottawa to be your Prime Minister of Canada after 1 term here in the city of Hamilton as your mayor. Thank you for voting me Ricky Tavares as mayor of Hamilton on Oct 27.

    Regards,,’ Ricky Tavares 905-515-4307 http://www.rickyseeds.com
