Why I'm Running

 

Hi, I’m Councillor Andre Chabot – and I’m excited to officially announce my candidacy for Mayor in this fall’s municipal election.

I am proud to have served Calgary as City Councillor for Ward 10 these past 12 years, but now it’s time for a change.

My wife Denyse and I want Calgary to be the best City possible for our 4 children and 5 grandchildren.

During my 12 years on Council, I’ve seen all too often that our City has simply stopped working for many Calgarians.

This City has been through some tough times but the economic tide is starting to turn. While we see signs of recovery all around us, I fear we will squander our opportunities for a better tomorrow without new leadership.

Time and time again, I have seen taxpayer money being thrown at issues without accountability. I have seen initiatives invented to address imaginary problems or benefit niche interests. I have seen how a top down approach silences good, common sense ideas.

And I can no longer accept what I have seen. We cannot accept the status quo.

That is why I am running for Mayor of Calgary.

I look forward to sharing my vision for Calgary with you in the coming weeks and months, and hearing your ideas for strengthening our City.

Together, let’s choose to make this the Calgary you know it can be. On October 16, 2017, chose Andre Chabot for Mayor!
