Because Hamilton Escarpment Doesn't Have that Same Ring...

The quick and dirty on Hamilton Mountain, courtesy of (where else?) the Hamilton Mountain News:

For the Libs, its still(!) incumbent Beth Phinney.

For the Conservatives, it is not City Councillor Tom Jackson, who ran last time, as he wants to spend more time with his municipal ward. It is also not former Hamilton Police Services Chief Ken Robertson, who was unwilling to suffer the indignity of a contested nomination and backed out. Who does that leave? Noone in print, but the rumoured candidates are former Hamilton alderman Fred Eisenberger and backroom guy Don Graves.

For the New Dems? Longtime candidate Chris Charlton was going to retire her nomination papers, but she's now not sure...
