    Default Ward 7 election, Druh Farrell vs everyone - discuss

    I know Druh is a real hate-magnet here on beyond, so let's look at all the candidates and see who the alternatives are.

    Anyone who believes in "strategic" voting should be vary worried about the anti-Druh vote being split. Some of the descriptions ripped from the Global News summary webpage.

    1) Druh Farrell - 16 year incumbent and has massive name recognition. Running on a tagline of being "sustainable, progressive and resilient".

    2) Margot Aftergood - volunteers her time on several committees and boards, including the Calgary Presbyterial United Church, the Kensington Commons Church and the Oi Kwan Foundation, along with being a licensed insurance broker. In her bid to win the Ward 7 seat on council, Aftergood is focusing on accountability and a strong fiscal plan.

    3) Brent Alexander - a volunteer and managing director. He’s offered his free time to several organizations, including the Rotary Club of Calgary and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. If elected, Alexander says he would focus on eliminating red tape at city hall, secondary suites and improving financial management.

    4) Dean Brawn - describes himself as an entrepreneur, strategic marketing professional and philanthropist. Born and raised in Calgary, he has worked with Vertigo Theatre Company, SAIT and the National Music Centre. Brawn says he wants to bring jobs back to the city and demand value for taxpayer dollars at city hall.

    5) Marek Hejduk - Born in Vancouver, Marek Hejduk came to Calgary after finishing work with a tech startup in 2000.


    Anyone have some thoughts? The only signs I've seen, and the only one to come to my door is Brent Alexander.

    You didn't want to make the thread "Lets get Druh Farrell out! Oct 2017" ?

    I dont think Marek Hejduk has a good chance doesnt he know ward 7 is mostly old people with a penchant for voting in Druh.

    Aren't you in between jobs right now? Sounds like the perfect time to start an anti-druh campaign. Get some name recognition for yourself, then jump into city politics. Get yourself a job and Druh out!

    Wife went to the debate at SAIT yesterday for Ward 7... Druh couldnt make it since she had a memorial to go to so it was the other four. Marek was touting how he was going "paperless" and started ripping everyone that was writing with their notebooks seems like a bit of a space case... didnt seem to interested in the questions or the debate itself.

    From what I heard Brent and Dean seemed to answer the questions pretty well, so I think the vote split will be between those two. Makes sense... 80% of the signs ive seen so far is for either Dean Brawn or Brent Alexander

    Calgary police laid the charges yesterday under the Local Authorities Election Act for "requesting a ballot in the name of some other person" and "without authority supplying a ballot to any person," offences that carry sentences including fines of up to $10,000 and/or up to six months in jail.

    They are in connection with alleged voting irregularities in the Oct. 18 civic election in which Margot Aftergood edged out incumbent Diane Danielson in Ward 10 by just 138 votes. Soon after, the city's chief returning officer revealed that there were 1,266 requests for mail-in ballots from a single post office box.


    So Margot is out.

    Dammit, this is going to be another split vote so Druh gets in. Please, if you're not even close to winning, drop out... Marek, Dean, etc.
    Brent Alexander I think is the only close one to win out over D'uh.

    Default The news article is 13 years old?

    Am I missing something here? Like the title said, that article was 13 years ago, and she has been cleared of any wrong doing.

    Why should she be subjected to a different standard than other candidate. Personally I would like to see Brent to win, but she is equally as qualified as any others IMO.

    In fact, she is probably equally as qualified as the current incumbent.

    Druh needs to go and has needed to go for quite some time, it's always her crackpot bullshit with the city art projects that get peoples blood boiling and yet there she sits every election! WTF. Shes in the same boat as Nenshi, Notley and Trudeau for me.

    Sounds like there is no consensus for the anti-druhs.

    Looking at the polls, Brent Alexander has the best chance of toppling druh, but rumours around the neighbourhood is that the two of them are buddy buddy, so not sure if that would be a big change.

    According to the taxpayer.com survey the most fiscally responsible candidate is Margot Aftergood. Interestingly seems like Druh didn't submit her survey at all. Shows her attitude towards citizens.

    Great... with the results, I'll be walking around my neighbourhood with a apprehensive look everytime I go out?!
    How are my sentiments towards D'uh so different than the rest of my neighbours??
    Lots of housing developers and hipsters in my area I suppose.

    I wish there weren't so many people running against her, then there'd a chance to actually beat her at least. She's the worst.

    Hired rivals? Next time sign up and run on the same platform as Druh and split her vote...Just get yourself some eclectic eyewear and Birkenstocks, then rave full nuts on against cars at every door while munching on a bag of hemp hearts. And don't forget your Nenshi pin.
