I cannot recommend Ray Chisholm highly enough for the position of town councillor for Ward 2. He brings a refreshing mix of pragmatism, common sense, compassion and integrity to the role and an in-depth knowledge of Town of Oakville operations. His many years of service in key roles with the Town combined with his private industry experience have provided him with the all too rare qualities of financial accountability and the expertise to bring projects to the finish line.

Councillor Ray Chisholm has worked well with the current Town council to ensure public safety is a priority. He advocates on behalf of his constituents on the issues that matter most. During his term on council, Ray has been a strong advocate for Ward 2. It is for these reasons that I endorse Ray Chisholm for re-election to Ward 2.

I have known Ray Chisholm for about 20 years and I am pleased that he has decided to run for re-election as Ward 2 Councillor. Ray is a lifelong resident of Oakville, so he knows the community well and has worked hard on behalf of the residents of Ward 2 in his first term. With many significant issues to be dealt with in Ward 2 in the next 4 years, we need a councillor with Ray’s knowledge and experience to represent us at Council and thus I will be supporting him.

I worked with Ray for a number of years when he was the Executive Director of CommUnity Arts Space and the Oakville Arts Council. Ray was the perfect hire because of his unique understanding of the Town of Oakville as well as his strong relationship with many of our Town Councillors. Ray is a strategic thinker and a consensus builder – two traits that I believe are very important in today’s municipal government.

Bill SmithOakville Arts Council- Chair

Ray understands the Town and he knows how to get things done. He is always insightful and knowledgeable and has always worked hard for the interests of the residents of this town. Voting for Ray to continue to work with Cathy Duddeck representing Ward 2 is the smartest move we could make.

I’ve known Ray for many years and you’ll never meet a more personable, friendly and articulate person. He’s passionate about the issues he believes in and I couldn’t think of a better candidate for Ward 2 Councillor.

I have known Ray Chisholm for 15 years as a neighbour and recently as my Council Member. Since his appointment, I have been extremely impressed with his commitment both in time and energy to serve the needs of Ward 2. I am a keen supporter of Ray and am confident that he will continue to represent the needs and aspirations of the community at the highest level.

Bill ArdellWard 2 Resident

Ray Chisholm is the candidate who knows, loves and has worked within Oakville – past, present and will in the future. At Council, his past experience working for the Town of Oakville is a huge asset for his constituents. In addition, his long-term residency in the Ward 2 neighborhood, while raising his family within the community, will continue to bring a valuable perspective on the present challenges and opportunities for all families. Ward 2 is fortunate to have such a valuable candidate!

Hilary & Roger SelbyLong-Time Oakville Residents

Ray and I go back a long way- but that’s no reason for someone to vote for him. They should vote for him because they value the same things that I value- integrity and commitment. Those are two qualities that I think a Councillor should absolutely have!
