Platform 2017

ELECTION PLATFORM - 2017

More than just ideas, Cathy's platform comes complete with well thought out achievable plans. No empty promises.

Leadership

Without a cohesive team on council we cannot hope to tackle the issues ahead. Unified leadership will be my highest priority in the first 100 days of the next term. We have an opportunity to reset, an opportunity we cannot pass up. We can do better!

Affordable Living

Times are tough in Alberta. It is important for the next council to work with administration to sharpen their pencils and keep tax increases to a minimum. At the same time, we need to ensure that services and facilities remain available to all residents.

Traffic & Safety

Traffic on the Trail, in Erin Ridge, and on Ray Gibbon Drive. We need to look at the overall problem. St. Albert is growing; traffic will only get worse if we don't form a plan for both current traffic reduction and managing the increase in traffic that new residents will bring.

Regional Collaboration

Working with our neighbours is critical to a healthy community. Cost sharing, idea sharing, and collaboration will not only reduce spending but increase services for the entire region. It is imperative that St. Albert have a strong voice in this process.

Open For Business

Envision a city where you do not feel obligated to shop local, but instead you WANT to shop local because of the quality of options right here in OUR town.  We have made great strides in this area over my 7 years on council, but I see even more opportunity on the horizon

Community Pride

St. Albert residents take great pride in our river, trees, trails, park, excellent cultural choices, and terrific recreational opportunities. We need to continue to support these pillars of our community as a part of the overall long term plan for the city.
