Hamilton Mayor Bob Bratina delivered his annual “State of the City” speech on Monday, you can view the entire speech on the Cable 14 YouTube page.

*The Hamilton Spectator *listed a word frequency count in their print edition.

This inspired me to create a “word cloud” of the speech. Thankfully, the text of the speech was posted online by The Hamiltonian.

With inspiration from *TheSpec *and the words from The Hamiltonian, I went to Wordle and created a cloud.
