Hamilton Lobbyist Registry -effective August 1, 2015
As your Councillor, I strongly support the transparency and integrity of our City government decision making process through public disclosure of lobbying activities and regulation of lobbyists' conduct.
The main instrument for doing this is the Lobbyist Registry, which is an online tool that documents all lobbying activities of persons meeting with the Mayor, City Councillors and Senior Management Staff. The Lobbyist Registry is an accountability and transparency tool. The goal of the Registry is to clearly show the public who is lobbying the City of Hamilton’s public office holders, and aligns with the City’s Values and Strategic Priorities. The Registry emphasizes a culture of open, transparent and accountable government.

Ward 15 Profile
Flamborough E-NEWS August / September 2015 Issue #48
Over the past month I have met with many of you regarding the many issues our community is dealing with, and I am pleased to share more updates with you today.
For those of you who are new to Ward 15 in Flamborough, it includes Waterdown, Carlisle, Mountsberg, Millgrove, Flamborough Centre, and all points in between. The boundary goes north to Guelph, east to Burlington and Milton and west over to Greensville. It is a very large and wonderful Ward to live in!
The summer is a very busy time, both for our community in Ward 15 and at City Hall. The City of Hamilton's Rural Zoning By-law was approved by the Planning Committee on July 7th and by Council on July 10th. The By-law is now awaiting a 20-day appeal process. In addition, Council voted against supporting Samsung Renewable Energy's proposed Mountsberg Solar Project due to the farmable land on the Mountsberg property. The final decision to approve or deny this project will be made by the Ontario Government. Finally, on June 24th, Council approved a recommendation for staff to consult with the public and stakeholders on options for potential changes to the Greenbelt boundaries. There will be three public meetings held to collect public feedback, including one at the Harry Howell Arena in Waterdown on September 14th.
