No candidate has MORE experience or knowledge about Municipal Government than Councillor Robert Chambers.
With over three decades of experience, serving on Council and numerous Agencies, Boards and Committees, Robert has acquired more municipal experience than the other candidates combined. Knowledge has been garnered by working with elected officials from all levels of government, by being Reeve of Burford Township and Warden of Brant County, by sitting on a wide array of municipal appointments and by interacting and listening to ratepayers from all corners of Ward Four. This is what makes Robert the best candidate for Councillor in Ward Four.
