"While I thank Doug Craig for his long service to the community, it is time for someone with fresh ideas and a co-operative style of leadership to head our city. For me, Kathryn is that candidate."
"In short, Kathryn McGarry doesn't believe that building a glitzy pedestrian bridge addresses the drug problem, it doesn't deal effectively with the homeless or " tent cities " in our parks nor does it deal effectively with ever rising taxation.
Kathryn recognizes that city staff, the business community, social service agencies, city advisory committees, council members and the citizens of Cambridge have a skill set which far exceeds a single persons knowledge base.
Kathryn doesn't want to be a know it all, she wants to make sure that process includes the people in the know to help drive the city's policy direction.
And that Ladies and Gentlemen is leadership."
"I believe now, more than ever, we must have a mayor who was and is heavily involved in the community and understands our issues at the grass-roots level. Kathryn is that person."
"All candidates for mayor are mature enough to know that my decision was not based on political affiliation, but weighted and not easy. I think any of you could do a great job. BUT I think Kathryn can do a better job! She has nursed me while I was a patient in the hospital. Always returned my calls, even though she was Minister of Transport. Real friends are hard to find!"
"We need a truly present mayor in our city - one who is committed to putting in the time to listen, and this lady right here walks the walk. Case in point, I sent her a PM via Facebook and she didn't hesitate to meet little ol' me for coffee."

"I spoke to a room full of lawyers at the Galt County Club Golf Course and explained to them that you are someone who done some good things while being an Ontario MP. I forgot to tell them about the #OneMillionTrees that we worked on together - but left them with the confidence that I have in you in your new pursuits and next chapter!"
"Cambridge is changing for the worse, and we need help. We really want to stay here. We want a vibrant downtown with great shops that is safe enough to let our kids walk through alone. We want our property values to increase. I have no doubt that Kathryn has the skills and energy to make that happen."
"I just came from a meeting with Kathryn McGarry and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. [...] I actually walked away with a renewed sense of home that Cambridge has a real opportunity to return to a safe and healthy and vibrant community."
"There is one mayoral candidate that stands above all others to me. Even before this campaign began and registration began, I had hoped that Kathryn McGarry would enter the race. Kathryn McGarry has always attended events, aided in worthy causes, not just during elections. For her, community service is not and has never been a ploy to garner votes. I truly believe that Kathryn along with my choices for regional Council will make great strides in finding the balance between needs and wants for all of Cambridge."
