fan of the incumbent, do nothing alderman, Linda "Ghost"-Mellway. After seeing the Facebook Page go live this week and the Calgary Herald Interview online, I was so excited to see that Richard Dur is officially in the race for Ward 14 Alderman.
I know Richard personally and think he would make an excellent Alderman. He has an amazing political mind for his age ( he managed the successful campaign of WAP Candidate Paul Hinman in last fall's provincial by-election) and after having coffee with him a few weeks ago, I was quite blown away by his idea's and values. He truly is a man of principals, which is often lacking in Calgary Politics. I have also seen his dedication to the community first hand through our involvement together with the Calgary Southeast Conservative Party riding association.
There is some controversy brewing about "Vote-Splitting" in this ward, by one of the other candidates. I will be doing a blog post about this soon, which reinforces my theory that this will be an interesting ward to watch!
Richard has been hard at work knocking on doors in his ward and I wish him well! I hope to do a blog interview with Richard soon, so if you have any questions you would like to ask, be sure to email me.
