A Message from Hamilton ACORN’s Political Action Committee - ACORN Canada

A Message from Hamilton ACORN’s Political Action Committee

ACORN’s political action committee sent a survey to candidates running in all 15 Wards and Mayor to see where they stand on the issues members want to see prioritized.

  • Tenant protections from displacement, substandard housing and extreme heat
  • Strong local policy to create affordable housing on public and private land
  • Municipal action on the digital divide

ACORN’s political action committee reviewed all the survey responses and took into consideration the candidates’ support to ACORN’s campaigns during the last four years. ACORN’s PAC has endorsed nine candidates (eight Councillors and one Mayor) for the October 24th Hamilton municipal election.
