"Harvey Shaffer is incredibly hard working, smart, totally dedicated to our town and a man of unquestioned ethics and integrity. He has made significant contributions to Hampstead the past four years and I very much want to see him back on council for another four years." – Mayor Bill Steinberg



Dear Fellow Residents,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for having elected me as your councillor in the previous election.

I am an Attorney by profession and have been a Hampstead resident for the last 33 years. I have served our community in various capacities, most recently, as your councillor in charge of the traffic and legal portfolios.

When I ran for office in 2009, I promised that, if elected, I would contribute significantly to the betterment of our Town, particularly in three main areas:

  1. Public Security
  2. Condition of our roads and sidewalks
  3. Traffic

True to my promise, I helped in reducing the speed of vehicles on our streets by implementing numerous speed humps and other traffic calming measures. In addition, I was instrumental in limiting the morning traffic on many of our roads, all of which created a safer environment for our families.

I also played an active role in helping to improve our infrastructure, and the condition of our roads and sidewalks has improved dramatically over the past four years.

As your councillor in charge of the legal portfolio, I led the charge in dealing with claims made against our Town, and I estimate that we saved approximately $100,000 through my efforts.

I have kept my word and made a difference. Keep Hampstead Safer with Shaffer and I shall do my utmost to ensure even greater safety and security for our residents in the years ahead.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (514) 754-3184 or by e-mail at harvey@harveyshaffer.ca and I will be happy to discuss my platform with you in more detail.

Yours truly,
HARVEY SHAFFER
