As you probably know, there will be a municipal election on Monday, October 16th, when we get to choose our Mayor, City Councillors and School Trustees. (Advance voting available October 4-8 and 10-11.)
There are significant boundary changes to Calgary’s 14 wards since the last election in 2013, and our community is affected. Erlton will no longer be in Ward 9, currently represented by Gian Carlo Carra. Instead we will be part of Ward 11, which has been held by Brian Pincott, who is not seeking re-election.
Here is a list of the candidates for Ward 11: https://www.calgaryelectioncandidates.com/ward-11-candidates with links to their individual websites.
You may be interested in some upcoming Ward 11 candidate forums:
Tuesday, September 19, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Haysboro Community Centre (due to limited space, Haysboro residents given priority)
Thursday, September 28, 7:00- 9:00 p.m. Memorial Park Library (registration required)
There may be more upcoming forums – the website calgarydemocracy.ca is a good source of information on the election.
If you know of any other Ward 11 candidate forums NOT on this list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on our ECA website.
We hope that this information is helpful you in making your decision as to who should best represent our community in City Council.
