Today Is Election Day

Its been over 10 months since I began my campaign to become the local councillor for ward 6.  On January 11, 2010 I visited town hall and filed my nomination papers and started what was to become a tiring, yet satisfying campaign. Over these past 10 months I have met many of you, a couple…

Final Countdown

Theres only one day left before the election on Monday. I’ve been out knocking on the last few doors left and meeting as many people as I can before Monday. After that its in your hands. I can only hope that I’ve given you a reason to vote FOR me instead of against someone else.…

Future Dunking and Coffee Talk Prep

Over the past several weeks in the campaign there have been many “Meet the Candidate’s” meetings, informal debates, information sessions, Milton Masterpiece Theatre’s, and other things to keep the daytimer of a candidate full. Last night was an “informal” discussion / debate for the Halton Public School Board Trustee position. Given all the debates across…

Why lawn signs?

Election day is getting closer. As I reminded my wife Pat and son Anthony on Sunday before heading out to the meeting on the St Mary’s Quarry situation held by F.O.R.C.E. (their website is www.stopthequarry.ca )I turned to them and said … “Only 7 more days!” With that I got a nice hug from both,…

An AMAZING Question

I just got back from the second half of my day knocking on doors and I wanted to post this great question I got from a lady on Auger Terrace. The question was “Would you like to work with one of the incumbents or a new addition to town council for this ward?” My answer…

Momentum seems to be building

I was doing the rounds yesterday around Trudeau and many of the people I spoke with know who I was when I came to the door. There were many of you who visit my website on a regular basis and make it one of their regular stops. I hope that this will continue because as…

Hockey Night In Milton

I had the opportunity earlier this afternoon to go out and hit a few doors seeing how I like most other parents had their children home for their PA day. After a long week of all candidates meetings and information sessions, and trick or treating, our friend Keith called us up to head out to…

Another good turnout

Last night was the all candidates meeting for Mayoral, Regional Chair, Wards One and Three local and regional candidates. At the beginning of the night it was a pretty packed room with well over 150 people in attendance throughout the event. Many thanks to all who participated in the organizing of the event from the…

All Candidates Meeting Preparation & Politicans on Break

Last night was a lot of fun. While walking Anthony around parts of Barclay Circle, Yates Drive and Coopers we saw many creative Halloween displays, costumes and not surprisingly VERY polite and well mannered children. Instead of yelling and screaming we heard “Happy Halloween!” and “Thank-you’s” from a majority of the children with their full…

What a turnout!

Close to 200 people (or even more, I lost count) filed in around 730 this evening into the banquet hall of the Milton Sports Centre tonight to hear information about the potential power plants in our area. Candidates and incumbents were circulating through the room, talking to people from Milton and some from Halton Hills…
