My name is Kojo Damptey and I am running to become your Ward 14 Councillor in the upcoming municipal election on October 24th, 2022.
I am running to represent Ward 14 residents so we can build a Ward and city that is caring, safe, affordable, equitable, and responsive to your material needs as individuals, families, and communities.
I am running because it's time to turn the page to a new Hamilton chapter that is ready to build an inclusive, participatory democracy.
I am running because I have the proven leadership and community-building skills that will usher Hamilton into a new phase of city building centred on your voice and your needs.
Our current members of City Council have reached a tipping point where no solutions are brought forward, our current elected representatives have made poor decisions that have cost us money and in some cases death (Red Hill scandal, Cootes scandal, lack of housing, poverty etc). We have a chance to usher in new elected leaders ready to serve, ready to listen to residents, ready to practice inclusive democracy, ready to put the needs of residents and community first, and ready to come up with solutions to the gigantic problems we face as a city.
I hope you can join me on this journey to truly transform our democracy and municipal government.
