Special thanks to Kyra Bird for covering our most recent Ward 11 forum for the Calgary Herald.
The forum, held September 25 at the Cliff Bungalow-Mission Community Association was attended by members of the Mission community who are voting in their first city election as members of Ward 11. Their neighbourhood was previously part of Ward 8. We also had residents from Beltline Roxboro and Erlton in attendance (also new to the Ward). In addition, we spoke with residents from Elbow park (parts of that neighbourhood are new to ward 11 as well). Four of the five Ward 11 candidates attended and participated in engaging, important conversations.
This forum, along with two others held last week in Haysboro and Southwood, were great opportunities to connect with residents and get to know more about their priorities. We look forward to meeting (and reconnecting) with more residents at other upcoming panels and candidate forums. A list of forums can be found here.
