Why I'm running
Throughout my 40-year career with the Calgary Police Service, I have always tried to understand the issues that impact our communities.
Calgary-Cross is a rich community with diverse needs and I have great respect for the people in this riding. We all work hard towards the same thing – a safe community to live and raise our children in. We all want the ability to take advantage of the remarkable opportunities that exist in this city and this province.
This is a pivotal time in Calgary-Cross and in Alberta. The choices we make in the next few years will determine what this province looks like for our children and grandchildren.
It doesn't matter if you were born here or came from somewhere else in the world, together we must develop the right road map to get us where we want to be.
I would be honored to represent you as your MLA for Calgary-Cross.
