Brand New Endorsements Highlight Jason Cherniak’s Abilities

As we approach the vote this Sunday, I want to thank the hundreds of members who have taken the time to speak to me at the door or over the phone. Some of you have even invited me into your homes and I have been impressed by the genuine care that all of you are putting into your decision for Sunday. This is a very important vote and I hope you will agree with me that we need a candidate with political experience, a proven interest and profile in our community and the ability to win the next election.

If you cannot make it for speeches at Noon sharp, I again ask you to watch my speech to a Richmond Hill community group:

Below are new endorsements from prominent leaders in our community and the Liberal Party:

“As a long-time executive member of both the provincial and federal Newmarket-Aurora riding associations, which included running twice as a provincial candidate, I came to know Jason well as our regional representative. I have been impressed by his genuine commitment to engaging with our Liberal community, and his support for building the presence of our riding associations. I am confident Jason has the talent, sincerity and connectedness needed to win Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill for the Liberals and I am pleased to endorse his candidacy.”

Jason Cherniak’s experience earns more endorsements for the Liberal nomination

Just under one week from now, on Sunday, November 9, you have an opportunity to make a very important decision.  I’ve been fortunate to speak to hundreds of Liberals in our riding and the message I am getting is clear – we need a candidate who is best able to organize a campaign, appeal to voters in our riding and win!  I hope you will agree with me that my 16 years of experience in politics, and my profile as a long-time community volunteer, put me in the best position to beat the sitting Conservative MP, Costas Menegakis.

If you have not yet decided who to vote for, then I ask you to please listen to my speech on the day of the vote – I will be first at 12 Noon sharp, so come early. If you are not able to make it at that time, then please watch my speech below to a local community group:

Below are even more endorsements from prominent leaders in our community:

Karen Cilevitz
“I have known Jason for many years and have had the privilege of his legal expertise, both personally and professionally. With Jason’s superb counsel, we were able to help defend the tenets of a mediated settlement, which saw 111 acres out of a total of 189 acres of land, including all the identified heritage on-site buildings, protected and conserved in the heart of Richmond Hill. The DDO Defenders are forever in Jason’s debt for his diligent work as our attorney.
“Jason’s dedicated work in assisting our organization in realizing a hard-fought dream to bring this land safely into public hands will always stand as a mark of notable excellence. Jason is a personable, intelligent man whose patience, knowledge and understanding would serve us well as our Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill MP.”
Karen Cilevitz
Ward 5 Councillor,
Richmond Hill
Jack Heath “I have known Jason for many years as both a Liberal and as a local lawyer. He is involved in his community and well known, with many friends in local governments across York Region. You can always count on Jason to attend community events, volunteer his time and offer smart, creative ideas. My friend Jason is the right candidate for the new riding of Aurora-Oak Ridges-Richmond Hill.”
Jack Heath
Deputy Mayor,

I’ve been volunteering for local community organizations and the Liberal Party for a long time now because I truly believe that if you work hard, do the right thing and engage people, then you can make life better for hundreds, if not thousands.  As your Liberal candidate and future MP, I will continue to fight for your interests and act with integrity.

Together, we really can make a difference!

Michael Colligan Jason has been my business and personal lawyer for many years. Whether restructuring my multi-million dollar business or representing me in court, he has proven that he is smart, sharp and quick on his feet.

“When a person close to me had serious legal problems and could not afford to pay, Jason represented her for free in court and resolved the problem. I am confident that Jason will make an excellent MP – the only negative is that I will lose my lawyer!”
