Kristyn Wong-Tam is one of the hardest working and thoughtful City Councillors I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Her advocacy for safer streets, improving public realm, honest transit plans, planning reform, supporting our most vulnerable, and on so many local priorities, has been necessary, skillful and effective.

– Patrizia Libralato, Founder and Executive Director, Toronto Biennial
I am honoured to endorse Kristyn Wong-Tam in her re-election as Councillor of Toronto Centre. I have had the immense pleasure of working with Councillor Wong-Tam on launching a visual arts biennial for Toronto and have witnessed first-hand her passion for our great city and its people. She is a tireless champion of arts and culture as she not only sees the economic impact it has on a city, but she understands the deeper impact and legacy certain projects can bring to the city’s numerous and varied communities via accessible and inclusive programming.

Kristyn Wong-Tam has been a tireless champion and advocate for all of her constituents. I have seen first hand her dedication to ensuring City of Toronto services and facilities are working hard for our community. On a personal level, in 2011 the first call I made to seek help in preserving a heritage building was to Councillor Wong-Tam. With her steadfast action, one of Toronto’s oldest buildings located 295 George Street (c. 1856) and the historic Fegan Boys Home was successfully protected and will be fully restored and integrated in the George Street Revitalization Project. Councillor Wong-Tam brings her entrepreneurial background and knowledge as a business owner to her approach in serving all sectors of the Ward. She is a proud Torontonian who serves with compassion, commitment and determination. I commend the work of Councillor Wong-Tam and her team and know she is the right choice for Toronto Centre.

I'm delighted to have the opportunity to endorse Kristyn Wong-Tam for City Councillor to represent Toronto Centre in the upcoming municipal elections in October. I've known her for all of her eight years as Councillor for Ward 27, during which time she has emerged as an outstanding leader in our City Council, and a champion both in the neighbourhood and for Toronto at large. She has combined intelligence, vision, passion and a refreshing, trustworthy honesty with an unparalleled capacity for hard work.
This is an era of rapid and seismic change for Toronto, with many challenges as we continue our growth into one of the most exciting, dynamic, innovative, world-cities on the planet. It's an exciting time, but a time when we need tireless, intelligent leaders with vision for things both large and small. We need leaders like Kristyn Wong-Tam. Please vote for her on October 22nd.

Almost 24 years ago, I met a young activist named Kristyn Wong-Tam. She was impressive then and her talents have only expanded and matured over the years. Kristyn's a natural leader, diligent and intentional in her actions with the ability to work across the multiple sectors - the arts, community and labour.

While some municipal politicians attract headlines for the wrong reasons, Kristyn is quietly and effectively implementing progressive changes to our home city and ward.
