I support revitalizing police policy to make Ward 4 safer!
My plan - Tavis plan

3. Durham Police Services presence is again normalized as a support system to the community that has been empowered to reduce violent activity and crime.
Purpose - Clean up the downtown area and reduce crime Ward 4 therefore attracting new business, development and improving our image.
Let's support sustainable development at Bond and Mary, but let's oppose Ritson and Richmond developments which are not good for Oshawa!
I am the only candidate that has been attending the Development Service Committee that oversees the current Downtown Urban Growth Centre. I have opposed the Ritson and Adelaide development which has now been sent back to planning. I support the condominium development at Division and Bond. I also support the development at Mary and Bond. I oppose the Richmond and Mary because of the height and "Light and Shade" because the existing Richmond Street condominiums. I have expressed my concerns for the most major development on Bruce Street by Medallion. At this meeting I have expressed my concerns regarding parking, noise, garbage, fire and safety, green space, and transit. I have asked the developer to contribute to upgrade to the adjacent Huron Park and the Michael Starr Trail. I also requested the developer to provide green space for the first phase apartments.
I support the Oshawa Parks Department upgrades to Rotary Park and Glen Stewart Park. I would also keep Adelaide Park in the green zone.
