Jason Lopez is a lifelong Hamiltonian, a husband, and a father. He was raised in a small home in lower Hamilton, the son of immigrant parents, who relied on public transit to get to around and explore the city. For 24 years Jason Lopez has worked at a family-owned Hamilton retailer, that has proudly been servicing the community since 1931. Jason currently holds a senior management position and is an advocate for paying a living wage and adopting green initiatives. He is a graduate of Hamilton’s McMaster University achieving a degree in history. Jason entered into politics because he is tired of the rigged system we live in that rewards greed and exploitation and does little for those that are marginalized. He believes that we live in a time of transformative change and urges citizens to look at their green candidates and realize there is another way forward.
