In my last three terms as your Ward 9 City Councillor I have worked for:
Generational Investments: not simply building for the city we are, but for the city we want to become. This includes supporting the neighbourhoods of Ward 9 through upstream flood and drought mitigation, advocating for better transit including the Green Line and the International Ave dedicated transit way, and bringing forward transformative policies and programs focusing on diversity, gender equity, anti-racism and truth and reconciliation.
Dedicated Budgeting: a city’s values are found not in its policies, but in its budget. This includes tirelessly advocating for MainStreets funding, parks and recreational amenities throughout Ward 9, supporting active modes including bike lanes and multi-use pathways, investing in affordable housing for seniors and families and directing funding to social programs for the most vulnerable.
A Voice for Ward 9 and for Calgary: our city is complex and understanding how to support the needs of our Ward 9 neighbours and all Calgarians requires a strong voice. This includes standing up for Calgary on municipal tax reform, advocating for Ward 9 businesses as we weather the impacts of this global pandemic, supporting a regional planning agenda and developing a new model to revitalize our local community associations.
We must continue to put in the hard work (because great cities take work!). As we look toward our best future, we must keep building a city that is modeled on the success and diversity of Ward 9’s great neighbourhoods to ensure an economic and social recovery that is just, fair and for everyone.
Covid-19 has revealed and deepened the inequity in our city. People of colour, women and our most vulnerable have been the hardest hit. I will fight to ensure that racial justice, equity and opportunity for all are at the centre of my work on Council—as we rebuild an economy and a city for everyone. Together, we can choose a future that focuses on building a just city.
I will continue to prioritize climate action and sustainability in all of Council’s decision making. From continued work on our flood and drought protection plan to creating walkable, bikeable and active neighborhoods. I’m committed to healthy neighborhoods and a healthy planet.
We must steer our city back to thoughtful discussion, to politics in full sentences. I will continue to be an engaged leader and a strong voice for Ward 9 on City Council.
This election, Calgary is at a crossroads and every donation (no matter the size) helps us build support for Councillor Carra’s re-election campaign! Donations help purchase essential materials like lawn signs, brochures, digital ads and other important online tools—like this website!
Get on my lawn! It’s not clutter if it convinces your neighbour to vote for Ward 9’s best future and for a better city that focuses on justice, equity and opportunities for everyone.
We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge that we are working on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta. This includes: the Blackfoot Confederacy, made up of the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations; the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, comprised of the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations; and the Tsuut’ina First Nation. The City of Calgary is also homeland to the historic Northwest Métis and to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. We acknowledge all Indigenous Urban Calgarians who have made Calgary their home.
