New Vision-Right Direction.
“I am deeply committed to public service and our community. I have been dedicating my time to raising my family, volunteering and community service. However, I can no longer stand idly by and watch the lack of opportunity and continuous rising tax burden faced by hardworking Calgarians. The incumbent, in my view, has stopped listening and treats the taxpayer like a cash machine. Calgarians need jobs; we must do better supporting small businesses, which are the real engine of growth. I’m ready to work hard to rid the veil of secrecy around decision making and the wasteful spending of our tax dollars. Both of which have led to unsustainably high property taxes, business taxes and the disconnect city hall has with its citizens. It is time to stand up and vote for real change, the right change for Ward 7.”
