Please tell us why
Hamilton is too large for Cllrs. to know it geographically or socially, ie to really know what is happening in each street, cluster of shops, parks or to know the people who live there. I favour East and West long wards, each with 3 Cllrs and shorter cross-wards for the South and North, each represented by 2 Cllrs. Might have to add a third one when Peacockes is populated. Boundaries to be drawn to include proportionate numbers of citizens. Personally I find 6 Cllrs for our West ward too many I only make contact with 2, don't have any dealings with 3 others and can't even remember who the sixth one is. It's OK to have all voters select the Mayor though STV would ensure reallocation of wasted votes more fairly.

3. The Council will hear verbal submissions on Tuesday 9 October 2018. Do you want to speak about your submission at this meeting?
