“The 155” Election Podcast – The Public Record’s Hamilton Election Podcast

.

The Public Record is interviewing all candidates in Hamilton’s 2018 Municipal Election, and releasing them in podcast format.


Subscribe to The 155 Podcast on Google Play, iTunes, or by RSS in your favourite podcatcher.


In each Ward, the candidates are asked the same questions and provided the opportunity to answer them as they choose.

The questions are designed to allow the candidate to articulate their reasons for running, and what they wish to achieve in elected public office.

 

A link to the questions for each ward is included in their section below.

The 155 Episodes

The podcasts are being recorded in blocks by Ward.

We began recording interviews on August 4 with the Eastern Wards. Episodes are posted when all candidates who agree to be interviewed in a race have been interviewed.

Thank you to the Hamilton Public Library for allowing The Public Record to record in the HPL’s sound studios at the Central, Dundas, Red Hill, Terryberry, and Turner Park branches
