Ward 7 Candidate Greg Lenko Withdraws From By-Election Race – Endorses John-Paul Danko

Hamilton, Ontario –January 25th,2016 – Greg Lenko, Hamilton business owner, Founder and Executive Director of the Escarpment Project has withdrawn his name from the Ward 7 by-election race scheduled for March 21st, throwing his support behind candidate John-Paul Danko to take over from Scott Duvall on City Council.

“I would like to thank my family, friends, volunteers and supporters across Ward 7 for their encouragement. I have decided that the best way for me to serve my community at this time is to continue focusing on the growth and success of the Escarpment Project - Hamilton’s largest volunteer environmental clean-up, and my other business commitments.”

“It has, become increasingly clear that the Ward 7 by-election is mired in party politics with many candidates who seem more interested in their political ambitions than representing the residents of Ward 7.”

“I’m endorsing John-Paul Danko as the independent candidate for Ward 7.”

“Ward 7 needs a city councillor that represents everyone, not just Conservative, Liberal, or NDP supporters.”

“I believe that John-Paul Danko is the most qualified candidate to serve the residents of Ward 7 as he has experience as a small business owner and a structural engineer with hands on experience building roads and bridges.”

“John-Paul and I share many common goals for Ward 7 including a focus on the wise investment of tax dollars, transportation, infrastructure, open and transparent communication and a commitment to a clean and healthy environment.”

John-Paul and his campaign team are happy to have earned Greg’s support and are looking forward to working with him for a stronger Ward 7.

“It is very encouraging for our grassroots campaign to gain support as the leading alternative to party-affiliated politicians and their party campaign machinery. As an independent candidate, I know that I have a lot more work ahead to earn the support of Ward 7 voters, but I have never been afraid of hard work.”
