Known as the ‘go to’ person who ‘gets things done’, Judi Partridge is a tireless champion at Hamilton City Hall for both her rural and urban residents. Elected to Hamilton Council in 2010, 2014 and again in 2018, Judi is a passionate, no-nonsense advocate who is committed to Building Community Together through economic growth, innovative job creation, protecting farmers, and helping seniors and youth in a community that is 70% rural.

As Councillor for one of the fastest growing residential areas in Hamilton, Judi is also championing the need for better access to broadband and mobile Internet connectivity in Flamborough, as well as access to natural gas infrastructure to save on high costs.
