My name is Tammy Hwang, and I am your City of Hamilton Ward 4 Councillor. I am well entrenched in the community, with deep experience working at City Hall. I have the knowledge, skills, and connections to find resources to move our city forward.
My family immigrated from Taiwan and set roots here. Growing up, I got to know the community from behind the till of my family business, Babe’s Jubilee store, at the corner of King and Province Streets.
Ward 4 is where I pay taxes, spend my time and money in this neighborhood I love – both as a community member, and a proud Delta grad!
Prior to taking office, I was a city staffer by day and a small business owner by night. I worked in the Economic Development department. My focus was to attract new investments and to enable immigrants and newcomers to start companies here in Hamilton. I am also a co-founder of CoMotion on King, a coworking space in downtown Hamilton.
I’ve guided new businesses, started community organizations, and mentored youth and women on entrepreneurism, career pathways and more. I am passionate about community vibrancy, small business resiliency, and advancing Hamilton’s infrastructure in a fiscally responsible way. I have been recognized as a YWCA Woman of Distinction and McMaster Alumni Arch Award for my service in the community.
Ward 4 residents and businesses have opened their doors to me and shared their concerns. I’ve been listening and learning – and I have lots of ideas. It’s an exciting time for Ward 4!
I aim to deliver and help build Hamilton to be the best place to raise a child and age successfully.
