Statement by alex pierson
Hamilton is LONG over due for some leadership that will start re-investing in the city's core! Everytime I come home to see my family I am disheartened, embarrassed to see the hollowed shell of a city that was once so full of promise. My grandfather, Joe Pigott, built much of Hamilton and advised against many projects ie; dismantling gore park and building Jackson square. His input was ignored time and again and look at the city now. He would whole heartedly back this stadium being built in the West harbour. The "mountain" has been the focal point for far too long and its growth has come at the expense of a downtown core that has been woefully ignored.
I invite this city council to get its collective head out of the sand before my beloved Hometown is destroyed forever!
