Greetings My name is Shane Keating and it has been my sincere pleasure to represent the people of Ward 12 since 2010. I am seeking the honour of being re-elected as Councillor for Ward 12 at the next Calgary Municipal Election on October 16, 2017.
The boundaries for Ward 12 are changing with this election. Ward 12 will be comprised of the communities of Shepard, Riverbend, Quarry Park, Douglasglen, McKenzie Towne, New Brighton, Copperfield, Mahogany, Auburn Bay, Seton and Cranston.
Ward 12 is the fastest growing area in the entire city. With that comes great opportunity, but also a number of challenges. I am committed to working hard to make sure that the residents of Ward 12 get the absolute best value for their tax dollars. This means building better communities for the next generation of Calgarians and investing in transportation infrastructure that will help address deficiencies in our capacity to move over 110,000 people that live south of Glenmore Trail and east of the Bow River.
I am committed to:
- Being an ‘agent for change’ in Council by pushing the City to consistently be open and transparent.
- Finding better and creative ‘outside the box’ ways of engaging Calgarians and increasing the level of involvement of citizens in local government decision-making.
- Advocating for important infrastructure investments that help sustain additional growth in southeast Calgary.
- Finding value in your tax dollars by working hard to keep your taxes low and ensuring that your tax dollars add value to the lives of Calgarians.
Green Line LRT
During my time on Council I have been one of the most vocal advocates for the Green Line LRT. We must work towards delivering high quality transit options for our most rapidly growing communities. I have played a key role to get funding commitments from the Government of Canada and The CIty of Calgary, but we are still hoping the Government of Alberta will join our funding partnership. I recently launched a video campaign that tells the complete story about why the Green Line is such a critical investment.
