Rabb, who was raised in Hamilton, has acquired a passion for the betterment of this city. Rabb opened his first business at the age of 12 selling and fixing computers to his neighbours as well as local business owners. After various management positions at a number of small box and big box stores Rabb went on to manage North American business unit of the software company Mitrefinch.
"I loved working in the private sector and working to help companies manage turnarounds in a tough economy but I wanted to do more to help my community."
Rabb entered municipal politics this past summer by seeking the Federal Liberal nomination for the riding of Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas which encompasses much of the West Hamilton Mountain. After the nomination he took a contract position with Councillor for Ward 8 Terry Whitehead.
"I still wanted to be involved and working at City Hall was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.” Rabb also stated, “working every day with the residents of the Hamilton Mountain lead me to seek this new role."
Through his time working in the Councillor’s Office, Rabb made a number of strong relationships with other Councillors and senior staff at City Hall. This sparked his drive to officially submit his candidacy for Ward 7 Councillor.
"The people of the mountain need a Councillor that can hit the ground running on day one. It is the value of the relationships I have built within City Hall that is going to help me get things done for the residents of ward 7 on day one."
Rabb is eager to get the campaign underway and will be at the City Clerk’s office when it opens to collect the required nomination package.
