Ceci's issues for the ward this term include:
- Affordable Housing
- Environmental issues
Joe's website, which spends a lot of time talking about what he HAS done, but little talking about what he WILL do, is here.
Al Koenig, aka "Rambo Al", is perhaps the best-known candidate for a aldermanic seat in this election. Koenig has been front and centre for years as the head of the Calgary Police Association. He recently scored the best quote of the month for his take on the city's wishy-washy policy towards yellow "Support Our Troops" decals on city vehicles:
"I wish they'd be more decisive as far as allowing them on city vehicles because you can't really suck and blow at the same time. You either support it or you don't."
Al spent 27 years in the Calgary Police Service, and worked many different beats - including the arrest of Charles Ng (bonus "Karma points" for Al). He has been criticized by incumbent Ald. Joe Ceci for being a "single issue candidate".
Koenig's issues (political, not personal), include:
- Improved resources for police, fire and ambulance services
- Affordable housing and residential density
- Criminal activity (especially related to prostitution & drugs)
- Publicly owned community and recreational facilities
- Managing pedestrian and vehicular traffic
The Koenig website, including a picture of Al with Dog Chapman (MORE bonus points!), is located here.
Stan Waciak has run for this seat previously, and is giving it the old college try yet again. Much like Ceci, Stan tends to focus more on the social issues facing the ward than the enforcement and regulatory side of things.
Among Stan's issues:
- Access to transportation
- High cost of living
- Youth outreach programs
Waciak has no web-site that the Enlightened Savage can find. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about that. :)
