2019-2022 Budget

In November 2018, I was actively involved in the One Calgary budget discussions.

I advocated for a more transparent and fair process for residents of Ward 5 and all Calgarians. I was focused on getting more efficiencies and savings by reducing expenditures. At the end of the debate on the budget, I voted against the overall budget that will increase the tax rate for Calgary homeowners and businesses every year over the next 4 years. I do not believe we should be increasing the burden on taxpayers by increasing property taxes on those who are already struggling from the downturn in the economy.
