Get to Know Who's Running: Anne Stevenson (Ward O-day'min)
There happens to be a Municipal Election coming up in Edmonton on October 18, 2021, and I think it's important for locals to get to know the City Council candidates running for their particular ward (as well as their Mayoral candidates, of course). I chose to get more involved in the election this year and so wanted to give each candidate a chance to tell us a little about themselves, their vision, and why you should vote for them. I have sent a 10-question questionnaire to each of the 2021 Edmonton Municipal Election candidates and will post their responses (100% as written) here as they come in. With that said, let's get to know...
"I’m an urban planner who is passionate about building an equitable city that serves all residents. I was born and raised in Edmonton and after high school had the opportunity to live, work, and travel abroad for ten years. In 2012, I was thrilled to move home to take a position with the City of Edmonton where I worked for seven years. After six years on the board of the Right at Home Housing Society, I joined as a staff member in 2019 where I work directly in the delivery of affordable and supportive homes to meet the needs of our community. I’m excited to have this opportunity to share my thoughts with Edmontonians and more information about my experience and priorities can be found at annestevenson.ca."
