Ferguson will not run for Hamilton mayor

Lloyd FergusonLloyd Ferguson won’t be jumping into the crowded Hamilton mayoral race.

The Ancaster councillor officially quashed long-running rumours about his candidacy for the city’s top job Monday, but did vow to seek re-election in Ward 12.

“I agonized over it,” said Ferguson, adding the decision didn’t get any easier after incumbent Bob Bratina announced he wouldn’t run again.

Two other council members, Brian McHattie and Brad Clark, have jumped into the mayoral race so far.  Former politicians Fred Eisenberger and Don Ross are also in the mix.  Rookie Crystal Lavigne,  pot activist Michael Baldasaro and taxi activist Ejaz Butt have registered as well.

  1. 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
