Lazich responded to the request for an interview, but her responses did not address all of the questions asked by The Silhouette. This profile was supplemented with information from The Hamilton Spectator and MacVotes campaign.
Lazich was the president of the Strathcona Community Council. She has also been involved as a board member with Crime Stoppers and in various capacities at the Art Gallery and George Brown College.
In addition to community safety and affordable housing, Lazich wants to prioritize infrastructure, financial accountability and transit. To address affordable housing, Lazich is advocating for stricter regulations for landlords and student rentals. She also believes the university should partner with the city of Hamilton to purchase “excess land inventory” to build housing.
Lazich’s plan for improving transit includes promoting the BLAST network and implementing electric buses for the HSR. She does not support the LRT, instead wanting to focus on increasing the ridership of the HSR.
