But the first thing his friends and family will tell you is that he cares about people and the future of our community and province.
Dan grew up in lower middle-class homes in Mississauga and Whitby. His dad, Billy, was a British Royal Air Force veteran, drummer and labourer. Dan’s mother, Helen, is one of nine siblings. By age 13, Helen started working in a bank to earn money to help her family get by. Billy and Helen were steadfast conservatives, pay-your-own-way kind of people who worked hard and wasted nothing. Together, they instilled the belief that hard work could transform someone’s future, and that anything was possible.
Dan attended public school and was an dedicated soccer player. He was raised a Catholic, attending church every week. Living in a lower-income neighbourhood, Dan grew up watching the struggles of his friends and neighbours – this, coupled with his parent’s experience, sparked his lifelong passion to help people.
After graduating high school, Dan attended the University of Waterloo, where he earned his Honours B.A., followed by his Master’s degree in public policy. While attending UW, Dan began dating his future wife, Adrianna Campovari.
Service. Experience. Dedication.
After defending his Master’s thesis, Dan went back to work for the provincial government to continue working within the system to make life better for Ontarians. Dan worked to improve the care provided in long-term care residences and nursing homes and increase the opportunities for seniors to age securely in their community. He contributed to the development of the standards and requirements of the historic Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, that requires public and private organizations to provide accessible goods, services and facilities to all. This experience has taught Dan how to champion accessibility for seniors and our friends and family who have disabilities
This commitment to public service and fighting for others—especially people with disabilities, seniors and families—has stayed with him throughout his career.
In 2008, Dan married his dream girl – Adrianna Campovari. A year later, Dan took on a new role: father to his first daughter, Olivia. In 2011, he welcomed his second daughter, Ava to the family. In 2014, a third blessing was bestowed upon him, as he and Adrianna welcomed their third daughter, Danica, to the Sadler clan. Nothing makes Dan prouder or happier than watching Adrianna be “supermom” and getting to spend time with his daughters.
Supporting the PC Party
In 2015, Dan joined the Flamborough-Glanbrook Conservatives and played a key role in MP David Sweet’s re-election. Shortly after, Dan was asked to become the Vice-President of the Board and then President/CEO, just over a year after joining.
When Dan felt the Wynne government wouldn’t do enough for families, people with disabilities and seniors, Dan didn’t back down. He built a coalition of friends, neighbours, community leaders and small business owners to help him make the changes he knew were needed.
Joined by 100 family members, friends and supporters, Dan launched his campaign for the PC nomination for Flamborough-Glanbrook. Focusing on his vision of how prosperity and compassion can go hand in hand, Dan has received support from many current PC party members while growing the party throughout the riding. Dan is committed to putting forward a fresh perspective, as he has heard time and again that residents are tired of the same old politicians and their double-talk.
Since launching his campaign, he’s been traveling across the riding to hear from families, seniors and small business owners and share his vision for our party and our province.
With your support, Dan will take his drive and determination to Queens Park as your candidate and MPP for the great riding and community of Flamborough-Glanbrook.
"The movement to get Ontario back on track needs you now more than ever.
Join me and my team in the fight for a better tomorrow – say you’re in."
