Terry's Vision

Calgary and Ward 7 has been built through your hard work and it must be protected. We need elected leadership that listens to and respects the people of Calgary.

 

Calgary residents, businesses, and communities want to be connected to their Councillor. They want to be a part of designing, building and growing their neighbourhoods. By building a coalition of Ward 7 community associations, a connection with small businesses and corporate enterprises, and a legion of our neighbours, we will make Ward 7 the most desired place to live, work, play and invest in - TOGETHER.

Safe and 

Prosperous Communities

Many of our Ward 7 neighbours tell me they do not feel respected, welcomed, included or treated fairly. They do not feel safe in their communities or on their streets. I believe in respect and equality. I will pursue greater inclusion along with greater safety and security in our communities.

 

Some Calgarians are also saying they are in difficult health, social and financial situations because of the economy and pandemic. Many cannot afford or justify the rising cost of municipal government and City-owned utilities. Calgarians need affordable access to public infrastructure and services to move forward in their lives.

 

I will work for Calgarians to ensure City Hall operates within affordable public priorities.

Green Line

LRT and BRT

Calgarians need a safe and affordable Green Line LRT and BRT that relies on green energy. I have worked with The City and communities to find the right alignment, especially in the downtown, over the Bow River, and up Centre Street for the north-central riders. To be affordable, the right LRT and BRT alignments must be built within acceptable risk, cost, and time considerations. We cannot afford to go overboard or be late. 

 

Communities and businesses along the alignment must remain vital and vibrant once the LRT/BRT is complete. The journey to the downtown must be safe, efficient, and clean-air focused.  Balanced multi-modal transportation access to the downtown core as a community, entertainment, and employment centre is essential as Calgary is a geographically broad city and as a winter city, personal vehicles are often the most efficient.

Calgary will truly be a city that moves everyone anywhere safely, affordably, and quickly in their mode of transportation of choice.

Urban and

Suburban Growth

Calgary is a great city to live, work, play, raise a family and run a business. Smart urban and suburban growth is essential to match Calgary’s population growth to 2.5 million in 30-60 years. Collaborative community-oriented municipal planning must complement the recently updated Municipal Development Plan and recently approved Greater Downtown Plan. 

 

Public engagement to establish the statutory Guidebook for Great Communities and the City’s first multi-community local area plan failed resoundingly. This resulted in significant community acrimony and division. With millions of dollars was expended and public trust lost, taxpayers are demanding change. Comprehensive public engagement in a diverse society is hard, but City Hall cannot avoid it.

 

I will work to return to a community and business empowered government where partnership and collaboration is the mantra.

affordable:

city hall operating within our means

City Hall needs to live within Calgarian’s means and that means protecting the public purse as if it were their own. Government programs must be delivered to meet our priorities; we must take care of Calgary first. Management must balance the city spending in a competitive market environment to deliver the right balance of cost, quality, and satisfaction.

 

My pledge is to ensure The City is managed in an affordable manner. Taxes and fees must be transparent and aligned with your priorities.

Listening,

Learning, Leading

Our neighbours in Ward 7 tell me all the time they are not properly informed and engaged with by City Hall; they do not feel their voices are heard or respected. I will work to reinstate purposeful dialogue between The City and our communities, taxpayers, businesses and residents to influence good municipal decision-making.

 

I am committed to a truly collaborative approach to leadership.

 

'Doing the Right Things, Doing Them Right', that's My Motto and My Promise.
