I TOOK THE PLEDGE!
It is very easy for me to take the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) up on their challenge to all municipal candidates and councillors to take their Pledge and commit my campaign to the following:
- focusing my campaign on issues that municipal elected officials can influence.
- maintaining independence and non-partisanship by rejecting any endorsements which would undermine my accountability to municipal residents (you) or the autonomy of the municipality (Ward 12).
- demonstrating transparency by sharing my vision for the municipality and providing pre-election disclosure of campaign contributions and spending.
- engaging in respectful behaviour by sharing my perspective, while respecting and seeking to understand differences. I am committed to Positivity, Possibility and Policy.
