Putting Values to Work
As your city councillor I commit to leadership based on the following values. These ideals form my approach to representation of Ward Anirniq.
It’s my promise that I’ll stay true to my values, working everyday to listen to what is important to those I represent. I’ll stand behind my decisions.
On council, a councillor is one voice and one vote. No matter the differences that exist, I will build relationships with other members of Council, so that decisions are in the best interest of the people of Edmonton and Ward Anirniq.
I will work with all levels of government, administration, organizations, and community groups to make sure we’re improving Edmonton.
I will not shy away from hard decisions or hard conversations.
I will talk to Edmontonians to understand their struggles and to know their joys so that as a Councillor, I can help make decisions that help.
We can’t keep trying the same solutions and expecting different results. Building a City that works for everyone, through our recovery and beyond, means working with others and thinking differently.
