Greetings Ward 12,
To me, this time of year has always meant taking time to reflect and recognize milestones. I can say without reservation, that the past year has been extremely unique for me and my family. I am still profoundly grateful for the opportunity and the trust given to me by the residents of Ward 12
In the spirit of recognition, I would like the thank the community associations, volunteers, neighbourhood groups and advocates for all the work you do. It’s the countless hours of work put in by members of our communities that makes Ward 12 so amazing to live in. Our neighbours are lucky to have you and your efforts. For those that have fought for positive change and improvements to your streets, parks and public spaces, thank you and please continue to push for change locally.
To my colleagues around the horseshoe at City Council, thank you for inspiring me, educating me, challenging me and sharing in the hard work and laughter along the way. Your work on behalf of your constituents and the citizens of Calgary is awe-inspiring. We may not always agree (and the opposition makes us stronger) but I believe in this process and goal of making Calgary better.
To my family, friends and office team, thank you for supporting me in this journey. Having you at my side makes the tough days bearable and the great days even more fun.
And last, but most importantly, thank you to my amazing wife Anna. You have taken on an even greater role in raising and taking care of our family and allow me to serve our city. Your support, encouragement and faith keep me humble and inspired. I couldn’t have done this without you in my corner.
To all of Ward 12 and the citizens City of Calgary, may you find as much to be thankful for and blessed in your lives. Please take care of each other and stay safe.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
- Councillor Evan Spencer
