A con­stituent thanks his coun­cil­lor

The Hamilton Spectator - - COMMENT -

RE: Say­ing thanks

Re­flect­ing on the con­tri­bu­tions of Mr. Ca­plan, one is prompted to con­tem­plate the irony: Why do we ex­press our gratitude to our mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil­lors only af­ter they pass away? Wait­ing till such tragic events is not just un­timely, it seems in­ap­pro­pri­ate. Ac­cord­ingly, al­low me to ex­press our gratitude to Mr. Chad Collins in Ward 5.

For more than 20 years, Mr. Collins has ca­pa­bly served us in so many projects, de­vel­op­ments and progress. Specif­i­cally we have: cleaner air, im­proved flow of traf­fic, ma­jor thor­ough­fares widened and repaved, numer­ous traf­fic calm­ing zones, new sew­ers, ma­jor im­prove­ments in Con­fed­er­a­tion Park, the traf­fic hub at East­gate, re­de­vel­op­ment along beach strip, com­mer­cial ex­pan­sion, sup­port for el­e­men­tary and high schools, sup­port for se­niors’ projects, en­hance­ment of recre­ation cen­ters, sup­port of im­mi­grant groups, the Red Hill Ex­press­way and a 20-30 year plan for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment. Chad, thank you. Michael Pawlowski, Hamilton
