Chair, Regional Municipality of Halton
Jeff has consistently supported our Regional plan to keep taxes low. For the past 11 years Halton tax increases have averaged 1/2 of 1%. Jeff has also been a strong Member of the Halton Regional Police Services Board helping keep Halton Region ranked the safest Region in Canada for 10 years in a row. Jeff has been a leader in the Halton Region plan that supports the health and well being of all residents in our community and I am pleased to endorse him and support his re-election in 2018.

Past Chair, Support and Housing - Halton
Past-President of ROAR (River Oaks Association of Residents)
I am supporting Jeff Knoll because he has been proactive in representing us at the Region. Jeff is one of the few councillors who realizes we have residents with limited incomes living in this Town and Region. Jeff reaches out to this segment. Oakville can only be as liveable as it is for our low income residents. I endorse Jeff because he looks out for our most vulnerable residents.
Resident, Ward 5
Having known Jeff for many years, in many capacities, I have always been impressed by his ability to clearly understand and articulate an issue and its context. Jeff listens then takes action, an approach that reflects his collaborative and effective leadership style. Jeff gets results on behalf of the people and the organizations he serves.

He is a tireless promoter of all things Oakville and works hard to ensure his constituents have a constant, knowledgeable voice at Town Council. I currently sit on the Board of the Oakville Public Library and have witnessed, first hand, Jeff’s (who is the longtime Board Chair) tremendous leadership - as he steers the Library into its exciting future. I highly endorse his candidacy.

I have known Jeff for many years and he has achieved an excellent record in representing voters in Oakville and the Region of Halton.
You can put your trust in Jeff. No Problem!

Captain B-787 (Ret'd) | Technical Consultant, Resident's Air Noise Group of Oakville | Technical Consultant, Toronto Aviation Noise Group | Member, Oakville Mayor's Noise Advisory Group
As a 30 year resident of Oakville, I support Councillor Jeff Knoll's re-election in this year's municipal race. I have worked with Jeff for the past 4 years through his position as Chairman of the Mayor's Airport Noise Advisory Group and his position as Halton representative on the Community Environment and Noise Advisory Committee of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA). Jeff's proactive work in the area of aircraft noise reduction has been a significant factor in the improvements that Oakville and Halton residents will begin to enjoy this fall. His tenacity helped to elicit action by Nav Canada and the GTAA and he was instrumental in a change of attitude toward community noise concerns at those organizations. Having worked with Jeff in committee, seeing his involvement with community activities and his dedication to the residents of Oakville and Halton, I take pleasure in endorsing his candidacy.

Therefore, I am pleased to provide my unqualified endorsement for his re-election this fall and look forward to working with Jeff for the next 4 years.
Local & Regional Councillor
Oakville Ward 2
Oakville’s heritage is one of the cornerstones that our community has been built on ... without it this town would not be what it is today. It is not an easy task to protect our past while embracing our town’s future – especially given the development pressures we have today. Never has that become more evident than through our relentless battle to preserve one of this town’s jewels – Glen Abbey ! Jeff Knoll has always been one of the most steadfast supporters of this town’s heritage and whether working on the Oakville Heritage Committee or supporting the Trafalgar Historical Society ... we have relied on his strong voice at the Council table. Ward 5, and the broader Oakville community, needs to have Jeff at the table to continue his work in preserving our past, and protecting our future. We could not ask for a better champion to protect this town’s heritage then Councillor Jeff Knoll!
Ward 5 Resident
Children are our future and there is nothing more important that being good role models for our own children as well as those of our community. Nobody knows this as well as Councillor Jeff Knoll. Jeff demonstrates through his words and actions his devotion to making our community a great place to raise children and to be a kid! I have witnessed him in action as an advocate for youth at council, supporting family and youth programs within Ward 5, being the long-terms Group Sponsor of Ward 5’s 1st Trafalgar Scouts, and a supporter of the Scouting movement in general, as well as employing and empowering young people through his business and more. For his dedication to youth and his service to our community, our family supports Jeff Knoll and we hope that you will too.

Town Councillor - Ward 1
I have served on Oakville Town Council for the last 36 years, but I have decided to retire from a role that I have been honoured to hold representing a community I love. While I will miss serving the community, I leave knowing there are excellent Councillors like Jeff Knoll who will continue to work hard for the Town and Region. I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff since his election in 2000 and I am pleased to endorse his candidacy for re-election this fall.
Former Film.ca employee
Jeff hired me as Manager of Communications and Community Outreach at Film.Ca right out of university and it changed my life. The trust and guidance he gave me was such a wonderful way to start my career. I saw first-hand his commitment to community and passion for serving the people of Oakville, whether through his work as a councillor or through providing affordable entertainment and good jobs to young people. Many of the issues affecting Ward 5 also affect my family in Bronte Creek, such as air traffic noise, and I have no doubt that Jeff is the candidate with all Oakvillians’ best interest in mind. I am very happy to endorse him.

He is Oakville’s biggest fan and works hard to improve the daily lives of those citizens lucky enough to call it home.

I wholeheartedly endorse Jeff for another four years as the Town and Regional Councillor for Ward 5.
