The All Candidates Meeting which was held at Le Dome Banquet Hall on July 7 had nine of the ten registered candidates in attendance. Many elected Municipal politicians were in attendance, including: Mayor Rob Burton, Councillor Jeff Knoll, Councillor Tom Adams, Councillor Roger Lapworth, Councillor Cathy Duddek, Councillor Dave Gittings, and Councillor Marc Grant.

“The All Candidates Meeting provided an opportunity for the residents of Ward 6 to engage with the candidates,” said Kerry Colborne, Chair of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce.
“We recognize the hard work and personal sacrifices they make to run for political office and we appreciate their input and cooperation in the All Candidates Meeting. And we look forward to working with the winner of the Monday, July 13, 2015 Election.”

The Chamber would like to thank all our partners: Falgarwood Ridge Residents Association Inc., Jennifer Bourikas CENTURY 21 Dreams Inc. Brokerage, The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board, Le Dome Banquet Hall, Cogeco, and McDonalds – Piper Foods. Without their help we would not be able to present this opportunity to hear directly from the candidates.

“We were very pleased with the event,” said Christine Langevin, President of the Falgarwood Ridge Residents Association, “The attendance was more than double what we expected.”

For those that were unable to attend, TVCogeco will be airing the All Candidates Meeting on Friday, July 10th at 7:00pm.
