Fred Eisenberger elected mayor of Hamilton
The Spectator declared him the winner over mayoralty front-runners Brad Clark and Brian McHattie about an hour after the polls closed Monday.
Voting results posted on the City of Hamilton website showed Eisenberger with 41.54 per cent to Clark’s 30.21 per cent and McHattie with 19.76.
Since Hamilton was amalgamated in 2001, the city has only experienced one-term mayors – Bob Wade, Larry Di Ianni, Eisenberger and Bob Bratina, who leaves office in January when the new mayor takes over.
This is Eisenberger’s fourth try at mayor: He won in 2006 but lost in 2000 and 2010.
A total of 366,000 Hamiltonians were eligible to vote but total voter turnout was not yet available about an hour after the polls closed. (Source: Hamilton Spectator)
