"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."
