Cody Oschefski — Midland Ward 2
from Midland Mirror
My name is Cody Oschefski and I am seeking re-election in Ward 2! I am a born-and-raised Midland boy. I currently work as an electrician at ZF/TRW here in Midland.
In my four years on council, I have worked very hard to be an accessible, open and accountable councillor.
I created Floatie Fest and Jaws on the lake, created the Midland Youth Committee, co-created the downtown movies, chair the buttertart festival committee, and I have hosted several community cleanups and fundraised for very worthy causes.
I have sat on several committees, Midland Cultural Center board of directors and Boys and Girls Club board of directors for a few years, as well.
I worked hard to not only fulfil my obligations as a councillor but to also bring new things to the town and to be a great representative and cheerleader for the town of Midland.
I am a committed team player and I am hoping for a dream team to help me make some of my goals come to life, such as:
moving forward with development of Midland Bay Landing, full of public assets, a functional and accessible waterfront for all;
continuing and enhancing our amazing tourism initiatives like events and cruise ships, and upgrade the appropriate areas to better accommodate them;
further developing our partnerships with neighbouring municipalities and local groups to find synergies and efficiencies;
enhancing Little Lake Park, discuss upgrades and re-explore a camping idea;
getting the downtown revitalization right — a beautiful functional and accessible downtown will be the heart of our town;
improve infrastructure to eliminate discharge into the bay during heavy rains;
work with the county on affordable housing, transit and other important issues;
continued economic development and fiscal responsibility;
help create a welcoming environment for small businesses, entrepreneurs and artisans.
We have moved mountains for four years, now let’s plant some seeds. Thank you for voting!
