The Hamilton Civic League is seeking hundreds of volunteers to help conduct our 2013 Community Values & Priorities Survey. The survey represents an ideal way for high school, college and university students to participate in local democracy through a non-partisan, community building initiative. The survey is scheduled to begin on Saturday, September 28th. Volunteers are requested to register online at www.CivicLeague.ca or to call 905-545-5577.
The results of the survey will assist voters to evaluate the decision making process at City Hall and help prepare the community to make informed decisions in time for the 2014 municipal election. With voter participation rates hovering around 40%, one intended goal of the survey is to engage and inform the community so that voters know what happened in Hamilton over the past four years and to increase voter participation levels to the point that other communities take notice and ask, “What happened in Hamilton?”
