Russ Powers has been a long-time resident of Dundas for over forty-five years. He has participated in and supported numerous activities and organizations throughout the community.

For almost 30 years, Russ has served the Community of Dundas as a member of Dundas Town Council, Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Council, the Hamilton City Council and Canada’s 38th Parliament.

Russ is a strong supporter of Dundas’ local identity and its quality of life, the importance of its environmental integrity, the need to constantly renew our municipal infrastructure, and to ensure a continued vitality in our chosen place to live and do business.

Retired after an almost 30-year career in health sciences at McMaster University, Russ Powers devotes his time to the needs of Dundas.
