Ward 6 is located North of the North Saskatchewan river and includes the communities of Boyle Street, Central McDougall, Downtown, Glenora, North Glenora, Grovenor, McCauley, McQueen, Oliver, Queen Mary Park, Riverdale, Rossdale and Westmount. It is one of the most ethnically diverse areas of the city, has the widest range of income levels of its residents, and has some of the most important venues of the city. The issues confronting residents here include the effects of the homeless crisis, increasing tax burden, infill frictions, confusing and unenforced bylaws, the threat to historical places and spaces, and transportation changes to and from the downtown core.
This is Why I am Running
I am running because I want a council who demonstrates fiscal restraint and prudence when dealing with tax money. I want a council who solves the homelessness crisis like they promised to do. And, I want a council who stands by the bylaws in place for the development of our city. My family has called Edmonton home for five generations. After traveling abroad for many years and with many opportunities to settle, I decided that Edmonton is one of the best places to live for a host of good reasons. And even though we are a wonderful city we keep experiencing the same annoying problems year after year that never get addressed effectively by our city council. I want to use my talents and my experiences to champion business and residential concerns and resolve them for everyone's benefit.
