THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR A PROGRESSIVE BLOOMINGTON
“After my 13 years as Mayor, I know what to look for in a candidate: administrative experience and devotion to community. John’s commitment to Bloomington and progressive values make him the right choice for Bloomington.”
“John has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of Hoosiers across the state, fighting for working folks and helping those in need. I’ve known him for more than 20 years. With his experience and lifelong Democratic values, John will be an excellent Mayor.”
“John has been a tireless advocate for public education. As mayor, he’ll fight for our schools.”
John Hamilton is a life-long Democrat and progressive activist. Hamilton was appointed by Governor Frank O’Bannon to lead two state agencies, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, both of which were cited for innovation and quality management. As director of the Family and Social Services Administration, Hamilton managed over 10,000 employees and a six billion dollar budget and increased internal audits by 50% to reduce waste and fraud. He also founded a non-profit, City First Enterprises, to promote and finance community development.
