I would like thank the residents of northeast Oakville for the opportunity to represent them over the next four years. It is a privilege to be able to work with so many great citizens who want to see the best for their community.
On behalf of all the candidates who took part in the 2010 municipal campaign, I would like to thank our families. Every successful campaign needs the support of friends and volunteers, but it is often the families of the candidates who provide the greatest support during a campaign. In my case, I want to give an extra big thank you to my wife Stephanie who took on all of those extra parenting duties of our three great kids over the last couple of months. That dedication needs to be recognized and appreciated.

I want to thank the many volunteers and donors who took part in the campaign. You gave up your free time and financial resources to help determine the future direction of our community. I believe it makes all the difference between a mediocre community and a great one.
Over the next four years, I will continue to work to engage with residents. I will continue my work to control growth, build the infrastructure our community needs to be successful into the future and run our community in a fiscally responsible manner.
The campaign has been a wonderful experience in renewing the direction for Oakville. It has served as a check with the residents to continue with many of the directions of our last term and an opportunity to reset or modify slightly our directions in a few others. In every case, I appreciate the feedback residents have given me.
Once again, thank you to the residents of northeast Oakville for the confidence you have shown in me. Thank you to the volunteers who made the campaigns possible. Finally, thank you to the families who supported the candidates throughout the campaign.
- Councillor Tom Adams, Ward 6
