Dear Ward 7 Neighbours,
The campaign for Ward 7 is heading into the home stretch and we are out working as hard as possible every day.
We know that we have put in the groundwork to be within striking distance of winning – but we need your help.
Without a political party backing our campaign, our two major challenges are volunteers and funding.
The result of this campaign will shape the future of Ward 7 and Hamilton for years to come, so if you have ever considered getting involved, now is the time.
Financial donations from our supporters make this campaign possible. To contribute by credit card via PayPal, please click on the following link:
Campaign donations can also be made my cheque made out to “Campaign for John-Paul Danko” and mailed or delivered to:
Campaign for John-Paul Danko c/o Stefanie Sheils, Campaign Manager
11 Buchanan Street, Hamilton, ON, L9A 2V7
To volunteer to either help drop fliers or knock on doors, please use the contact form below to get in touch.
Thank You For Your Support!
I would like to sincerely thank you for your support – together we can move Hamilton forward!
Our campaign can accept contributions from:
- Individuals who are normally resident in Ontario
- Corporations that carry on business in Ontario
- Trade Unions that hold bargaining rights for employees in Ontario
Note: If your business is a sole proprietorship or an LLP you are not eligible to make a contribution through your business or partnership. Those contributions can only be made personally from your personal funds as long as you are a resident of Ontario.
As per the Municipal Elections Act, the campaign cannot accept donations from:
- Groups, clubs, associations or ratepayer’s groups.
- A federal political party, constituency or riding association, or a registered candidate in a federal election.
- A provincial political party, constituency or riding association or a registered candidate or leadership contestant.
- A federal or provincial government, a municipality or a school board.
There is a $750 limit that applies to each person, corporation and union who contributes to a campaign. If you or your company wishes to contribute to more than one campaign in an election you must ensure that the value of all contributions to all candidates does not exceed $5000, and that no single candidate receives a contribution in cash, or in kind services over $750.
If a campaign accepts contributions from corporations, it must determine whether the corporations are associated.
Generally, corporations are associated if they are owned or controlled by the same person or persons. For specific details, please see section 256 of the Income Tax Act (Canada). The contribution limits apply to associated corporations as if they were all a single corporation. The maximum amount that a contributor can give to candidates in the same jurisdiction (i.e. running for the same council or the same school board) is $5,000.
I would like to sincerely thank you for your contribution to our campaign for City Council!
