I love Calgary and I love the communities of Ward 8 – my home for my entire life, and where my Wife and I are raising our three children. I have chosen to dedicate myself to public service, and since 2007 I’ve had honour of representing this great inner city Ward. Last year, the Calgary Centre by-election presented the opportunity for someone new to represent this area of Calgary at the federal level.

I briefly considered this potential opportunity, but decided that I want to remain committed to my role representing you on City Council. It’s the level of government that touches our daily lives most, and I know that together we can continue making Ward 8 and Calgary a great place to live.
