Ward 3 Councillor of Calgary
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.
The traditional funding model that allows us to invest in our communities is no longer working because it requires patching together funds from property taxes at the municipal level and begging for matched funds from provincial and federal governments. We live in a competitive environment with other cities that move at a lightning pace. While we are waiting for bureaucrats to make funding decisions, we lose our edge by losing opportunities for investment and losing the talent we need to for a thriving business sector. We must advance innovative funding mechanisms used in other cities as an alternative to the ineffective current system. Learn more.
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.
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.
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.
