Ward 3 Calgary Map

CHAMPION WARD 3 INTERESTS

 FIGHT FOR THE NEEDS OF CALGARY’S WARD 3 COMMUNITIES

All of us who live in Ward 3 have made significant investments in north central Calgary by calling it our home. Now it’s time for our government partners to step up and invest in much-needed improvements, like access to local schools and better transit options. Jyoti will challenge all levels of government to develop practical solutions for critical infrastructure shortcomings. Learn More.

BETTER MONEY MANAGEMENT

BUILD INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGH SMARTER PARTNERSHIPS AND FUNDING MODELS

Many politicians will tell you that the only way to fund projects in this economic environment is through increased taxation. Jyoti has a different approach, one that is based on controlling property taxes through predictable and sustainable funding from federal and provincial governments, leaving more money in Calgary for local services. We can further create efficiencies by identifying areas of savings through comprehensive departmental budget reviews, allowing for redirection of funds to much needed community projects. The needs of north central Calgary can be met, but it will require effective management of municipal funds. Learn more.

Calgary Funding
Calgary Economy

ADDRESS ECONOMIC CHALLENGES

ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES TO CALGARY’S ECONOMY WITH PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

Rebuilding Calgary’s economy will require collective action and collaboration to secure a stable and more prosperous future. City Council’s approach to our economic reality must reflect what most of us have been doing at home: evaluating our income and expenses, making changes to our habits, and seeking alternate means to earn a living. Calgary must become equally committed to fostering a diverse economic approach that ensures resilience for our city and its people. Learn More.

FOSTER SAFE & CARING COMMUNITIES

SUPPORT A SAFE AND CARING CITY FOR ALL CALGARIANS THROUGH GREATER INPUT ON SOCIAL POLICY

Federal and provincial governments are largely responsible for setting social policy. Such policies don’t always translate into practical solutions for those in need, nor do they come with an effective means to deliver intended results. Policy makers can no longer operate in a top-down manner. Calgary must be involved in contributing to the development of social policies in the best interest of our residents. Learn More.

Safe Calgary Communities

LOCAL LEADER. PRACTICAL PLAN.

HOW CAN I SUPPORT JYOTI?

Cities are the intersection of people and places. Building cities with great communities requires an understanding of the everyday work and life experiences of citizens. Jyoti has experienced life in Ward 3 like many of you, and she has the proven track record of community service and professional experience to implement a practical plan to bring strength and prosperity back to our communities. Help Jyoti bring vision to action, get involved now!
