December – Councillor Ward Sutherland’s Report


I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the residents in Ward 1 for re-electing me. I am humbled that you have placed your trust in me to represent you for a second term. Serving my constituents and the City of Calgary is an honour that I revere. I am grateful for the support from my wife, family, friends, volunteers and campaign supporters. It is because of your belief in me that I find myself in this privileged position.

I would also like to acknowledge the other candidates for running – Chris, Cole, Coral, and Cam. I thank each of you for sharing your ideas, commitment and passion for our communities. I hope to continue seeing your engagement in the communities in Ward 1.

Now that I am back in office, my focus is on addressing pressing city matters, such as the current economy, the 2018 budget and property taxes. I am excited to work with both the new and returning council members. While the City and City Council face many challenges ahead, please know that we are listening and we will be working collaboratively to find solutions for all Calgarians.

With the holidays approaching, I would like to take this time to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. Whichever holiday you celebrate, I sincerely wish you a safe and happy time with your friends and family. I’m looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you in the New Year!

Warm Regards,
Ward Sutherland
Councillor Ward 1
