I am ready to take on the challenge of leading us toward our collective and promising future.
Any vision for Edmonton needs to be rooted in a recognition of our vast potential. My vision is a simple one: it’s about common-sense innovation. It’s about focusing on the things that matter most, right now. It’s about the people who live here.
My plan for Edmonton will be guided by core principles of collaboration, consensus-building, and empowerment. And it will only work if we work together.
Our city, Alberta’s capital, needs a leader with the right balance of experience, qualifications and spirit.
As an entrepreneur, I understand what it takes to start a business, make payroll, and keep the lights on. My experience at City Hall gives me the in-depth knowledge of the City—which is required to affect real change—and to work with all partners to get the job done right.
I combine bold ideas with a balanced approach. And I won’t hesitate to stand up for Edmonton. I have built my career on a record of transparency, accountability, and fact-based decision-making. This is also how I will help build up our city.
We have a tough road ahead of us in Edmonton and we’ll need to work hard. But Edmonton is resilient; we are smart and tough and we don’t take “no” for an answer. I am the leader who will get us to “yes.”
