Rob Burton is a leader who delivers on his promises — you can trust him to do what he says.
"Incumbent Rob Burton is among the best mayors in the Greater Toronto Area. He’s a staunch defender of Ontario’s green belt and has successfully eased this city’s unbridled growth. Burton has also worked to improve Oakville’s waterfront, overseen transportation improvements, expanded the city’s tree cover and has provided tax restraint. This effective leader deserves re-election."

"Burton has been an effective and responsible mayor. He has taken firm steps to control Oakville’s growth and has raised development fees. He also boosted city services, especially the fire department, while keeping tax increases moderate. And Burton proposes reasonable borrowing to help cover the city’s $200 million share of a planned new hospital’s cost. ... Burton offers a sound, realistic approach to the city’s needs. Oakville is better off with him in office."

"Burton hit the campaign trail hard. His hefty bid for the mayor’s office demonstrates his unwavering interest in the town. He has a track record and voters know him.We believe Oakville residents would be best served by re-electing Burton based on his experience at the table."
