In an article in the Stoney Creek News, a question is being raised as to whether Mayor Eisenberger's attendance at Ward 5 contender Jaswinder Bedi's campaign opening celebrations, amounted to the Mayor endorsing Mr. Bedi.
“I don’t endorse candidates,” said Eisenberger. “I was invited as the mayor of Hamilton. I was there to support getting more diverse councillors at city hall.”
Bedi said he invited the mayor to attend his campaign office opening.
“He didn’t endorse me directly,” said Bedi. “He did say that I would be a good choice. I appreciated what he did.”
Collins said he was initially surprised the mayor would attend such an event. But he refused to comment on Eisenberger’s participation.
“You will have to talk to the mayor about that,” he said.
