Kim’s Platform


A fresh Voice for Ward 5

Dear Friends and Neighbours!
Hi! My name is Kim Beatty and  I am running for  Regional and City Councillor for Ward 5, Oshawa. I bring leadership, a progressive view, business and advocacy experience to this important role. The decisions we make during the next four years will impact what form our municipality will take in the future.

We need a fresh, new voice in Ward 5 to help us thrive. We need better services with more effective transit, and new opportunities that bring good jobs to our community. As your Regional and City Councillor, I would work to ensure all our stakeholders have a part to play in the process.

I’m looking forward to connecting with you during the campaign. I want to hear about your challenges and ideas and how we can work together over the next 4 years.
Let’s do this together!
Kim Beatty
