It may be over 20 years since Gord Krantz faced a serious challenger in Milton. Back then it was Colin Best who got as close as 1000 votes to beating Krantz, before settling for a long career as a Milton councillor. Zeeshan Hamid, first elected in 2010, has the background and credibility to launch a serious challenge to a mayor so confident in his position he acts as if it’s 1965 and email hasn’t been invented.
Whatever the relative merits of Hamid and Krantz, we think this is a race worth watching. In our interview today, Zeeshan Hamid is detailed and refreshingly frank about the challenges facing Milton, and what he believes he can bring to the table if elected. Wherever you live, you should definitely listen to this interview before you go to the polls in October. If you live in Milton, because it will decide who leads your town. If you live elsewhere, because we need to hear what credible candidates are offering and demand the best from candidates where we live.
