Long-time City Councillor Bernie Morelli is being remembered by many in Hamilton today, the day after he died at the age of 70.

Morelli represented Ward 3 since 1988 when he was elected to the Catholic School Board, since 1991 as City Councillor.

There have been many expressions of thanks to Morelli posted to Twitter and Facebook today, many people are sharing their photos of and with Morelli.

City Council gathered for their scheduled General Issues Committee meeting this morning. The Mayor called the meeting to order, spoke of Morelli’s service to the community, and recessed the meeting to give City Hall an opportunity to absorb the sad news.
