McHattie and the 100-day tour
By Teri Pecoskie / The Hamilton Spectator
Brian McHattie has a lot of walking ahead of him.
The mayoral candidate and Ward 1 councillor has launched a 100-day tour of Hamilton’s nearly 200 neighbourhoods.

Standing with supporters at Sam Lawrence Park overlooking the lower city, McHattie said no mayoral candidate in memory has taken on such an ambitious campaign tour. He also said he would work into the night to get the visits in on top of his ongoing city council duties.

He said he will post daily updates and photos on mchattie2014.ca
