Election 2014:  A Message from Councillor Elgar

As the Ward 4 Regional and Town Councillor for the last 14 years, I have worked hard to serve my ward and the community as a whole. I am proud of my accomplishments, but there is still much to do. There are many issues facing our community (eg. possible development of Saw-whet Golf Course) and I feel I have the experience, passion and knowledge to make a positive difference.  I hope I have your vote to continue important work on your behalf.

There are several ways you can help in the campaign:

  1. Take a lawn sign this is an easy and very effective way to make a difference- just email me your address (
  2. Make a donation to help pay election expenses. I have never accepted donations from developers, numbered companies or self interest groups but a donation from a private individual is appreciated. The Town offers a rebate program for donations find out more at rebates.  Give me a call or email if you want to donate or have questions about the rebate. Mail donations to 1320 Mapleridge Cres Oakville L6M2G7  (cheques to the order of  "Allan Elgar Re-Election Campaign"
  3. )
  4. Volunteer for my campaign e.g. knock on doors, make phone calls, help with signs. Again, call or email if you want to help.
  5. Vote for Allan Elgar on October 27, or at an advanced poll (info about advance polls on right)

My Re-Election Brochure should have arrived in your mail.  Please let me know if you haven't seen it. With over 60,000 residents (one third of the town) it is impossible to get to every front door to have a conversation, but I am doing my best to knock on as many doors as possible.  Please contact me if you would like me to drop by, or if you have any issues or concerns.

I invite you to explore my website to learn more about me, my accomplishments and the issues that face our community. Please spread the word by encouraging your friends and neighbours to do likewise. I plan to update my website often, so please check back frequently.

Warm Regards,

Allan Elgar,
