Revitalization of our main streets is underfunded
Unfortunately, while the current City Council has directed hundreds of millions of dollars towards subsidizing new communities on the edge of town, many of our main streets are languishing—despite having contributed decades of residential and business taxes to City coffers. As things stand today, most of the identified main streets projects will not likely be realized for years or even decades because of the out-of-sync priorities of previous City Councils.

Ward 8 needs a leader who will prioritize revitalizing our main streets
Calgary’s recovery and long-term success depends on the continued support and growth of our local businesses—alongside the continued success of our inner-city neighbourhoods. However, without a leader on City Council, we risk losing the lion’s share of capital funding to subsidize new communities on the edge of town. If elected, I will fight for Ward 8’s fair share of reinvestment so that the necessary funding will go towards revitalizing our main streets, supporting the businesses that anchor our communities, further strengthening our neighbourhoods in Ward 8.
