My name is Kristyn Wong-Tam and I am running for re-election in the new ward of Toronto Centre. I will continue to work with residents, businesses and communities to defend our great city and create a more vibrant and livable downtown.
Voted Best City Councillor three years running - 2015, 2016 and 2017.
With the support of my communities, as a City Councillor I have successfully:
- Improved parks and expanded public spaces;
- Built new affordable housing and renovated TCH buildings;
- Defended the rights of tenants and the most vulnerable;
- Preserved heritage buildings and created Heritage Conservative Districts
- Developed the immediate 12-month and 5-year Downtown East Action Plan for more vital city services
- Created safer neighbourhoods and more walkable streets;
- Initiated the Noise By-Law review to ensure stronger enforcement;
- Guided development to address local needs; and
- Dismantled the quasi-judicial Ontario Municipal Board to give local communities more say in planning decisions
I believe in a Toronto that is safe, livable and affordable, where we can live, work, invest and play together, and where city services are efficient and respond to everyone’s needs.
As your City Councillor, I will continue to fight for a fair Toronto. I will continue to work relentlessly to protect our neighbourhoods while bringing both integrity and accountability to City Hall.
Yours in service,
