Don Hamilton for Mayor of Markham

It's Time for Change!

City of Markham Communities

Working Together for a Better Markham!” was the slogan for my Regional Councillor campaign in 2018. However I believe it’s time for a change in leadership at the City of Markham and that’s why I am running for the position of Mayor. Together we really can make Markham better.

During the last 4 years on Council, I have been honoured to represent you as Deputy Mayor and Regional Councillor and if elected as Mayor I will:

    • provide timely responses to resident inquiries, issues and problems
    • re-introduce a City of Markham Lobbyist Registry
    • be supportive of the York Region Vacant Housing Tax initiative
    • advocate for responsible use of tax dollars and keeping City and Regional tax increases to inflation or below
    • support affordable housing projects through the York Region land dedication program
    • engage with York Regional Police to strengthen neighbourhood safety programs
    • ensure each Ward has an off-leash dog park
    • embrace the diversity of Markham’s multicultural community
    • promote our arts, culture and recreation programs and facilities
    • be supportive of better transit, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure
    • be proactive in attracting new business and responsible development to Markham
    • be a strong supporter of a greener Markham and York Region and heritage preservation in our villages

I will work closely with your Ward Councillor on local issues. At the Region, I will work with York Region Council in the best interest of Markham residents.

During the last term of Council, I have been writing a weekly eNewsletter called The Markham Exchange. It has provided updates and information on items in the City and around York Region. Are you receiving it? If not, please subscribe.

I believe I can best serve all Markham residents as the Mayor of the City. I hope I can count on your support in the upcoming Municipal election this Fall.

It’s time for change!
