Sandra Hunter for Mayor of Calgary

I am Sandra Hunter and I am campaigning to be the next mayor of Calgary. I have not been to any forums, nor will you have seen me planting signs on lawns or knocking on doors. I believe that those days have come, and gone. I believe that the way, today, to connect with potential voters, is through NEW media.

Dexx Williams For Edmonton Ward 6

Hi, my name is Dexx, Dexx Williams, and before I talk about why I'm running to improve the City, allow me to share a bit of my background with you... As you may know, I'm currently a police officer here in Central Edmonton, and have been for the past six years, but that experience is only part of what I bring to the table at City Hall.

Derrick Forsythe: Experience - the Right Mix for Edmonton's Diverse Ward 6

The easiest job in the world is to sit back and chuck bricks... It's a line - albeit a saltier version - that I first heard as a teenager back in New Brunswick. It was at a golf course. My friend's dad was the Club President and was talking with a friend of his at the end of a meeting in which the membership was attempting to keep the course afloat. The meeting has been a little raucous and he was discussing some peoples' dissenting comments with a close friend of his.

Hafis Devji, Ward 10 Edmonton: Edmonton's Future Depends on a Solid Foundation

Edmonton has been Hafis Devji's home for his entire life. He has lived here for over 40 years, since his parents emigrated from East Africa, when their political leader, Idi Amin, forced out Devji's family along with 80,000 other Ugandan residents. Since his family has been in Edmonton, the Devjis have played an active role in the local business scene and within social organizations around the community.

Scott Sorokoski for Calgary Ward 13

Change. Such a simple word but it means so much. In starting my career I had a boss that said "you are the new eyes of the company. You see the cracks in the foundation that all of us who have been here a while have lived with and ignored." This is where I have vowed to make an impact in every role I take on.

Judi Vandenbrink for Calgary Ward 1

A great voice for the community is someone who listens to the concerns of all stakeholders, researches solutions and strives to achieve enduring, balanced results. From my observations, an effective Councillor must have a variety of life skills, a history living in the ward, formal education, critical research skills, team building skills, an ability to set priorities and the strength to make hard choices. I have proven that I have these skills.

Brian A Deacon for Edmonton's Ward 8

My name is Brian Deacon ,I have been waiting for the chance to introduce myself, and engage in a bit of discussion about the issues affecting us all as Edmontonians. I am running for city council for various reasons and hope to get more in depth about that here. To begin with, I have lived in multiple cities across Canada over the course of my life, but Edmonton is the city that really speaks to me.

A Progress Report

In 2010, I ran on a platform that consisted of 12 Better Ideas and I am pleased to say that, with the support of City Council, we have either completed or made significant progress on the vast majority of them.
