Meet Eric Tuck

Dear Neighbour,

 

I am a lifelong resident of Hamilton, and I’ve lived in Ward 4 for more than 40 years where I’ve been a community leader and advocate for families. I’ve spent 34 years as a transit operator for HSR – driving the Delaware, Barton, Parkdale, Cannon, and King Street lines – serving the people of our neighbourhood and gaining a deep understanding of these roads, our community, and the issues we face together. My time as a leader fighting for working families as President of ATU Local 107 has given me a track record as a proven negotiator who can tackle tough issues and get things done for others. Now I’m ready to get things done for Ward 4.

 

I believe in giving back to the city that has done so much for me, my children, and my grandchildren. I am running to be your City Councillor because I have a vision for Ward 4 and for Hamilton where everyone has an opportunity for a brighter future – a more equitable community where all members are supported to thrive and where we look out for our neighbours and future generations. As Hamilton continues to go through historic transformation, with LRT and other major projects shaping the future of our city, Ward 4 deserves a representative who will ensure that all Hamiltonians share in the benefits of that growth.

 

I want to ensure this project creates economic opportunities for generations to come by leveraging this opportunity to deliver community benefits such as affordable housing, support for local suppliers, and good fair wage union jobs. Join me in building a kinder, more compassionate, and inclusive community.

 

Eric Tuck

On The Issues

WHAT I'M FIGHTING FOR

Safer Streets and Neighbourhoods
•    A new Municipal 311 system to streamline and modernize the reporting and tracking of common issues to the City to ensure transparency and accountability for common repairs and safety concerns.
•    A full Safer Streets Audit and immediate implementation of all recommendations.
•    More investment in after school and youth recreation programs working with community groups and volunteers.
Improved HSR and Public LRT
•    Protecting the LRT as a publicly owned, operated, and maintained investment and an economic driver that will deliver benefits to the community.
•    Ensuring that HSR transit is accessible and equitable for all Hamiltonians no matter where they live.
•    Leveraging LRT construction to deliver progress on Hamilton’s infrastructure deficit while securing prosperity for local businesses.
Affordable Housing
•    A comprehensive strategy to address the housing crisis in Hamilton.
•    Aggressive pursuit of zoning and building bylaws to include such things as inclusionary zoning, low and mid-density development, and alternative housing options such as co-ops, tiny homes, or shared co-housing.
•    Investment in affordable Hamilton Housing that is geared to income, truly affordable, and meets the present and future needs of our growing population.
