Get to Know Who's Running: Andrew Knack (Ward Nakota Isga)
There happens to be a Municipal Election coming up in Edmonton on Monday, 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...
"Andrew was born in Edmonton, raised just west in the city of Spruce Grove and has lived in west Edmonton since early 2002. Andrew received his Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Alberta in 2006 and managed a retail business based in West Edmonton Mall until being elected in 2013. He is a strong advocate of our community league system and served on both the Meadowlark and Jasper Park Community Leagues. During his time on Edmonton's City Council, Andrew has served as the Council representative on the Accessibility Advisory Committee, City of Edmonton Youth Council, and Edmonton Transit System Advisory Board. He is responsible for four Council Initiatives: NextGen, Seniors, Public Engagement, and Transportation Innovation. Andrew also sits on the Edmonton Public Library Board of Trustees and the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) Board of Directors as Vice President for Cities over 500,000."
