Green step­ping down from rental hous­ing sub­com­mit­tee

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Ward 3 Coun. Matthew Green says he is step­ping down from the City of Hamil­ton’s rental hous­ing sub­com­mit­tee.

Green an­nounced his de­ci­sion, which he said is ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately, in an email Tues­day morn­ing.

The move stems from the fact Green’s com­mer­cial prop­erty has two units that could be rented out in the fu­ture. This could present a con­flict un­der the Mu­nic­i­pal Act, he said in his email.

Green said he was made aware of the po­ten­tial is­sue by Ward 4 Coun. Sam Merulla.

“I have made the de­ci­sion to de­clare my in­ter­est in or­der to pre­vent an (sic) con­flict or even a pub­lic per­cep­tion of a con­flict of in­ter­est and step down from the com­mit­tee ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately,” he wrote.
