My name is Ejaz Butt and I am running for Mayor in the city of Hamilton. I have been living in Hamilton for the past 27 years, as I immigrated from Pakistan in 1987. When I first arrived to the country my responsibilities as a husband and a father was to be able to provide the best I could for my family. Once all of the financial responsibilities were fulfilled I decided it was time to become a servant of the great city of Hamilton.
I have committed myself to charitable organizations throughout the city. The hardest barrier I have ever faced since becoming a civil servant was establishing the Taxi Union in Hamilton, where I served as President for many years. For my dedicated service to Hamilton and the people of Hamilton, I was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee award in 2010.
Since 2001 I have attended many city planning meetings and I have given my input. I voiced that if our city continued spending large sums of money we would be going from a good credit rating city to a city with a bad credit rating, which we have become.
I am motivated to continuously help the city of Hamilton. I have created a platform, which consists of 23 steps. Through these 23 steps I will be able to change the city for the better. I do hope when you vote on October 27th, 2014 that you remember to vote for Ejaz Butt.”
