Home Stretch!

We are now nine days away from January 24th, 2022 – Election Day!  After two and a half months of campaigning, it is remarkable to realize that we are truly in the home stretch.  We have three key areas where we hope you can help us, as we head to the finish line.


Delivering Postcards – January 18th to January 23rd, 2022

We did a city-wide mailing of a postcard outlining David’s Seven Key Platform Commitments this week.  This is the second city-wide mailing we have undertaken since the beginning of January.  We would now like to organize postcard drops in selected areas around the city.
We are proposing to organize pickup times for postcard bundles on Tuesday, January 18th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and on Wednesday, January 19th from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Every little bit will help, so even if you can only deliver a small number, we would really appreciate your assistance! 
We will assign you your target area/streets when you pick up your postcards.  If you would like to sign up to pick up postcards on Tuesday, from 10:00 – 12:00 please sign up here. If you would like to pick up some postcards on Wednesday from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., please click hereWe would ask that, as much as possible, you try to deliver the postcards by Saturday, January 22nd, 2022.


The next, and final, All Candidate virtual event, is set for Tuesday, January 18th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Sponsored by the Richmond Hill Board of Trade (“RHBoT”), it is the last chance to hear from all the Candidates together, prior to the election.  We sincerely hope you can join us, and we would ask that you encourage your neighbours and friends to also watch the event.  Click here to watch the event on Tuesday, January 18th, 2022 @ 7:00 p.m.


Please encourage everyone you know to VOTE!

Our final ask is to encourage each of you to ensure that you vote! On-line voting starts on January 18th, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. and in-person voting starts on January 22nd, 2022. Voting ends at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, January 24th, 2022.  Please also encourage all eligible members of your immediate family, your neighbours and friends to vote for David West! Further information on voting procedures, how to make sure you are on the Voter’s List, etc. can be found here.


As always, we want to say THANK YOU to all of you. For all of you who helped us when we could go door to door, who dropped postcards in neighbourhoods, and those of you who have helped us to get our signs out – THANK YOU.  THANK YOU as well to everyone who has sent us an email, reached out to your neighbours and friends to spread the word, reacted or commented on a social media post, sent us feedback on an e-blast, joined us for a virtual chat or attended any of the All Candidate events.

Every one of you has helped to make this campaign energizing and positive, and we cannot wait for the day when we can connect in person to truly express our appreciation!  We are going to work very, very hard over the next nine days to continue to reach out and connect with as many residents as we can, and we do so knowing we have an amazing volunteer team cheering us on!
