Supporting local and independent #HamOnt Journalist – @joeycoleman

Joey Coleman is a local and independent journalist who covers Hamilton City Hall and provides recorded and live coverage of meetings. Joey’s reporting is invaluable to me. Without Joey Coleman, I would simply not know what is going on at City Hall.

Besides, with a young family, I cannot afford the time to attend afternoon or evening meetings. While other media may give me the results of high-profile decisions, Joey’s live streaming of Heritage or City Council meetings allows me to follow the debate and better understand the concerns of the various players.

Coleman’s reporting is supported by crowd-source fund-raising. Without donations from you and me, Joey’s unique form of journalism would not happen. This source of funding also ensures that his journalism remains independent.

The latest campaign has just ended, and I pledged to give $100 to support his efforts. I would like to urge you to consider supporting his work the next time there is a crowd-sourcing campaign.

As you can see in the video part of this post, even one of Santa’s reindeer is coming out to support Joey.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
