Ward 12 is made up of the following communities:

Auburn Bay, Copperfield, Cranston, Douglasdale Estates, Douglas Glen, Mahogany, McKenzie Lake, McKenzie Towne, New Brighton, Seton, Shepard, Quarry Park.

These are some of the fastest growing communities in all of Alberta.  That growth brings opportunity, but it also brings challenges.  I have been serving the residents of Ward 12 since 2010.  Residents continue to communicate to me that infrastructure and fiscal responsibility are the two biggest concerns in Ward 12.

Infrastructure

SE Calgary was often known as the forgotten quadrant when it came to infrastructure projects.  Ward 12 has continued to see some of the most aggressive growth rates in the entire City.

Population

Over the last 5 years I have worked to reconcile the infrastructure deficit that SE Calgary has faced.  We have work to do, but we are making some tremendous progress!

Recreation Centres

During my 2010 election campaign residents of Ward 12 continually mentioned the need for recreation centres in SE Calgary.  During my first term I worked towards getting City Council approval of a new financing strategy that would ensure the development of four new recreation facilities in Calgary.  Three of these centres are being built in the southeast, including two in Ward 12.  It’s the beginning of a service that SE residents have been asking for.  The facilities are designed to meet the needs of residents and it is very exciting to bring these services to life.
