Elect a Progressive municipal government.
The objective is to convince candidates that Progressives have a voice in Mississippi Mills. We know that there are good candidates who have been intimidated
by exceedingly confrontational tactics. Many believe that there is no point in running.
To combat this we will collect money and pledge votes in advance of any candidate declaring. Imagine what would happen if we collect enough to fund a campaign and if we can deliver
enough votes to a potential candidate. It would remove the barriers for Progressive candidates to run. This is our objective.
Potential Progressive candidates that participate will have to convince us that they represent our views and values. We would vote among ourselves
to decide which one of our candidates to support.
Once a candidate is chosen we would transfer all the donations to that candidate's campaign. The donations would be coming directly from you the donors and not from any
organization. You will get a tax receipt for the amount you contributed directly from the successful candidate.
If none of the candidates suit you then you can get a full refund at any time prior to the start of our internal voting. By contributing now we send a strong message to
potential candidates to step forward.
You can watch the process and if you don't like it for any reason, you can get your money back at any point before voting.
If we do nothing then we may be stuck with Regressive ideas for at least 4 years.
