Get to Know Who's Running: Scott Hayes (Ward sipiwiyiniwak)
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...
"It’s been a privilege being able to serve our community and city. I’ve served for a number of years by overseeing some of the development in our communities as a building superintendent (supervisor). I understand what it takes to build something from the ground up. Presently I enjoy working with clients, helping them with their real estate needs. Edmonton is a generous city that offers many opportunities and values hard work. I am blest to have been born and raised an Edmontonian and embrace these values. I also believe that the world becomes a better place with small acts of kindness. With some of my free time, I was fortunate enough to volunteer in Mexico, helping a community build a feeding kitchen and a school for underprivileged children. In Haiti I had a part in building an addition on an orphanage. I’m so grateful for the service I’ve been part of thus far and now I feel it would be a privilege to be elected to serve you on Edmonton City Council. I would be honoured if you would vote Scott Hayes For City Council Ward 5, Sipiwiyiniwak, on October 18, 2021. I’m so excited to now have the prospect of serving you on City Council. I consider you as my friends and neighbours and welcome hearing from you with any of your concerns. Thank you to all the constituents of Sipiwiyiniwak."
