Congratulations to all of my colleagues who were successful in their election and re-election efforts! I wish them all much success in the future.

It has been a privilege to have served as your Local & Regional Councillor for the past four years and I am proud of what I was able to accomplish. My most important achievement was in the changes made to the management and culture at City Hall to improve performance, fiscal accountability and service.

Vaughan Contribution Rebate Program

The City of Vaughan is again offering the Contribution Rebate Program for this election. This program is available to residents of Vaughan who are on the Voters List on Election Day.

A minimum contribution of $50 is required to be eligible for a rebate of up to 75% of the contribution, to a maximum rebate of $150.

Contribution Amount Rebate Amount
$50 (minimum) $37.40
$100 $75.00
$150 $112.50
$200 and more $150

Rebate cheques will be issued following the submission of the candidate’s expense report – early in 2015.

Please visit the City of Vaughan's Election 2014 website for complete details.

To my supporters and friends: I can't thank you enough for your efforts. We ran a very clean, active and respectful campaign and we can all be proud. Unfortunately, this time, we came up short. We are all disappointed, but this will not stop me from finding ways to continue serving and advocating for a better Vaughan.

As you are all aware, I ran my campaign without accepting any donations from developers, corporations or unions. As a consequence, I have excluded myself from a significant source of funding for the campaign. Now that the campaign is over, I have until the end of December to wrap up the finances. There remains a short period of time for me to try and raise approximately $20 000 to cover the current shortfall.

If you wish to make a financial contribution to my campaign or know of someone who might want to contribute and hasn't yet, there are two ways for you to help. Cheques can be made out to the "Deb Schulte Campaign" and dropped off or mailed to us at:

The Deb Schulte Campaign
76 Mira Vista Place
Vaughan ON L4H 1K8

Alternatively, you can also donate online using your credit card and the fast, and secure, PayPal.

Don't forget that that any resident who was on the voters' list in Vaughan is eligible for a rebate and the maximum donation to a candidate is $750.

Thank you again for all of your support.
