Blog: September campaign update

It’s hard to believe that October is almost here! I’m pleased to take a moment to give you a quick update about how the campaign is going.

Fall Campaign Kick-off Rally

As I said from day one, this campaign is about continuing the progress we’ve made over the last four years. Now’s not the time to turn back the clock or drastically change direction. We need to continue to make progress on expanding transit, investing in community facilities, and other priorities important to Ottawa families.

Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking to help out on the campaign? I would be grateful for your time and skills to help secure a strong mandate at the ballot box on October 27.

Our campaign office is open seven days a week in Centretown – feel free to stop in to learn more about how you can help. You can also sign up to volunteer here.

 

Remember: Every Vote Counts

If you are reading this blog, you have taken at least one step to get engaged in the municipal election campaign. That's great to see: Learning about candidates and finding out what they stand for is critical to the democratic process. But what is most critical is voting.

Put simply: voting matters. It matters for you. It matters for your family. And it matters for your city.

Ottawa’s next City Council will make important decisions that will impact your day-to-day life. Every vote truly counts. I hope you will commit to voting on October 27, and encouraging your friends and family to do the same.

 

Thank you again for reading. 

See you soon.

Jim
