City Councillor Candidate​

WHY I’M RUNNING TO BE YOUR NEXT WARD 9 COUNCILLOR

I am a born and raised third generation Calgarian and I love this city fiercely. I currently reside in the community of Inglewood with my awesome dog Frank (which I hope you get to know along my campaign).  

I grew up in a house where the news was always on and my parents engaged in lively conversations about politics on all levels: federal, provincial and municipal. My Mom introduced me to municipal politics at a young age through her work on several campaigns for a former long-term successful female Councillor. My mother’s values taught me a lot about the importance of participating in the political process to support my belief that in order to effect change you have to be a part of the process.

WARD 9 IS READY FOR CHANGE

My professional life involves strategic communications management roles ~ the majority of this time has been spent working for local homebuilders and residential community developers (yes, suburban) where thousands and thousands of Calgarians’ dreams for home ownership have come true. I've also had a super fun Director role over at TELUS Spark (FKA Calgary Science Centre) as well as a Vice President's role with the Calgary International Children’s Festival.My professional life involves strategic communications management roles ~ the majority of this time has been spent working for local homebuilders and residential community developers (yes, suburban) where thousands and thousands of Calgarians’ dreams for home ownership have come true.

MY PRIORITIES

Like the rest of us, I am worried about the scars the pandemic will leave behind. I have heard from residents that the scars are deep (I definitely have a few) and electing a council with dedication to healing those scars is imperative. This coming election is a way for Calgarians to move through the challenges that we currently face ~ and electing a council who can see these obstacles as opportunities for growth is imperative. We need a council who can face the reality of where we are, where we can go, and how we can get there.

  • Making Smart Spending Decisions (I’ll figure out where your money really goes)

  • Citizen Representation (I promise to be your voice at City Hall)

  • Complete Communities (Urban & Suburban ~ equally important)

  • Mental Health and Addictions (I want to ensure that the remainder of the $25M (earmarked by council) is spent responsibly where we can see tangible results)

My career and my personal life solidified my commitment to building a healthy, vibrant city where every person has the right to thrive. This will definitely take...
 

Dedication to strengthening the ways in which

Calgary city council works for ALL Calgarians.

I am a strong communicator who believes in the power of listening to people and gathering information from diverse sources before recommending a way forward that meets people’s needs while respecting economic realities. Calgary’s future is bright and I want to be part of the process that helps it reach its full potential.

As a member of city council I will embrace the responsibility of helping to shape the future of Ward 9 and Calgary as a whole ~ this is an obligation I won’t take lightly and my success is 100% reliant upon hearing all of your voices.

When elected, my focus will be to get back to the most important tenet of Government - the People. I won’t lose sight of that. My goal is to meet you where you are at ~ I will listen to you and ensure you know you’ve been heard and understood. I intend to set up the Ward 9 office so that each community in Ward 9 will have their very own advocate to contact when issues arise, additionally, I will hold quarterly Ward 9 community roundtables so that our Ward 9 team can hear directly from you what issues are important to you.

 

I live my life based on two fundamental beliefs: "take action" and "do the right thing” and intend to serve the residents and businesses of Ward 9, and all citizens of Calgary, ethically and with the highest level of integrity.
