Initiative 4

Empowering Resident Leadership

Strathcona County is one of the best places to live and raise a family. We attract the best. We need to utilize the powerhouse of skill, ability and energy we have in our residents. When we do, we will move into a position of unsurpassed leadership in Canada.” 

 In the first 90 days I will implement plans in place to:

  1. Table a motion to replace the current Counselor Priority Funding program with a more effective community development program, focusing on revitalizing neighborhoods and resident participation (e.g. match grants to resident labour and resources contribution.)
  2. Re-establish public open houses at every Council meeting.
  3. Increase citizen representation on committees while decreasing elected official and staff influence. (e.g. reverse the current Council decision to decrease the number of residents on committees.) Empower committees with increased communication tools and budgets.
