Do you still have a lawn sign?

My team is staffed entirely by volunteers. We're all human and mistakes do happen. Having placed over 1,600 signs on private property across Oshawa, we may have missed picking up your sign in our city-wide sweep.

 

If you have a lawn sign at your home or business -- or have spotted one in your neighbourhood -- please send a note to campaign|at|votejohnhenry.ca so we can pick it up as soon as possible.

My sincere thanks for your continued support -- and for having given me a stronger and more decisive mandate to lead our Council over the next four years.

 

Oshawa is a community filled with heart, spirit and hope. Our citizens, from the earliest pioneers to our newest arrivals, have proven themselves to be industrious, selfless, and compassionate people.

 

I am confident that your strengthened Council will redouble its efforts to improve upon its recent return to fiscal management, accountability, principled and well-informed decision-making, and -- most importantly -- cooperation around our Council table.

 

As we discussed during this campaign, my key priorities for the next four years are:

  • Holding the line on taxes (residential and business) while minimizing local and regional property tax increases, as we've done over the past four years. Your 2010-14 Council delivered a four-year cumulative tax increase that was 50% lower than the 2006-10 Council or the 2003-06 Council. At the same time, however, residents have the expectation that Council will maintain high-quality core services while providing sound fiscal oversight.

  • Local job creation (especially youth unemployment) -- along with securing and growing Oshawa’s automotive and manufacturing (including General Motors and its feeder plants) footprint in the midst of very significant North American and other global competitive realities; and,

  • The near-term redevelopment of Oshawa’s waterfront including the speedy re-introduction of recreational boating access during this next Council's term.

Much hard work lies ahead for your new Council. I'm looking forward to working with each of our re-elected councillors and three new additions to Council including Dan Carter, Rick Kerr and John Shields.

 

With your support, we'll work collectively to strengthen our City's governance, accountability, and prosperity over the next four years.

 

I hope we speak personally over the coming weeks or months.

 

If I may be of any assistance please don't hesitate to contact me by email (jhenry@oshawa.ca), telephone (905.433.5611), or through Facebook or Twitter.

 

Bes wishes,
