My name is Alex, and I’m a proud Calgarian. Years ago I got involved in political organizing because I love this city, and want to see it thrive. I have been president of the Calgary District Labour Council for ten years, and have seen firsthand how resilient our city is. With your help, we can get our city council on the same page.
Calgary’s city council is out of gas. Without any meaningful progress, politicians are losing the trust of hardworking Calgarians. Coming out of this pandemic, we need a strong city council who can work together to come up with innovative solutions to our city’s problems. Together, we have the power to change Calgary’s future.
My name is Reframe, and I’m the Community Liaison for Calgary’s Future. I love getting out in the community and talking to Calgarians about making our city better.
More often than not, you can find me hanging out at the library. I spend a lot of time reading up on municipal politics, researching policies, and analyzing spreadsheets. Did I mention that I love spreadsheets?
I’m proud to be associated with hardworking Calgarians who are inspired to make our city the best it can be. Together, let’s shape Calgary’s future!
My name’s Ethan. I’m a writer and musician, and I’m proud to be a born and raised Calgarian.
Calgary’s a beautiful place–I’m constantly inspired by the towering trees, rolling hills, and winding rivers that flow through our urban landscape. I’m even more inspired by the strength, resilience, and community spirit of the people who call our city home.
Calgary’s changed a lot since I was a kid. As our city continues to grow, it’s important to make sure that Calgary stays accessible and that there’s lots of opportunity and support for the people who live here. That’s why I believe in Calgary’s Future–together, let’s hold our leaders accountable and make our city better!
My name is Jessica, I’m an artist, cultural worker, and coffee lover. I’m also a small business owner in Calgary where I run Kaffeeklatsch; a coffee company serving notable coffee to facilitate social connections.
We need a vision for our city that wakes us up from the status quo and gets people excited about our future. We need a city council that puts residents ahead of developers. A council that invests in vital city services instead of wasteful privatization, and one that cares for our most vulnerable instead of over-policing them.
I know that small businesses succeed in cities that lift up all their citizens. In good cities and in good cafes: everyone is welcome and warm.
My name is Moses. As a born-and-raised Calgarian, I’ve been involved in political organization since I was 18. I’m passionate about improving the lives of individuals living in our community. I believe that city council has failed thousands of hardworking families. The continued push to privatize services has led to hundreds losing their high quality, good-paying jobs, only for all Calgarians to receive low quality services in return. These cuts have not translated into the ‘fiscal responsibility’ that many in city council promised their constituents. In the face of pandemic challenges, we need to ensure that Calgary city council represents the will of their constituents and puts them first.
My name is Mary, I’m a journalist, addiction support worker, social media manager, and a film buff. I am passionate about community building and believe that regular people have the power to change their communities for the better.
My name is Lucas, and I’m a digital organizer. Before I ventured here, I was a campaign organizer, community and labour organizer, and an arts worker. What I’m most proud of is getting candidates elected at every level of government. Together, let’s come up with innovative solutions for Calgary’s problems. Calgarians deserve community leaders who are willing to stand up for everyday people and solutions that make sense.
My name is Deborah, and I'm a Calgarian who is looking forward to bringing new changes in the city I love. I've worked in the clean tech industry and most recently in a non-profit setting. Calgary has unlimited potential to attract new talents and investments. Together, we can build a Calgary that is innovative, inclusive, and accessible for all.
