“I am running for Mayor to get the city of Calgary back on course.  We need to control reckless spending, make streets safer and rein in excessive tax increases. These are the challenges the next council will face.  It will take a strong, creative, thoughtful leader to succeed. I am that leader. It’s time for a change. Calgary, we need a new Mayor.” 

- Bill Smith, June 12, 2017   

Calgary Needs Real Leadership

When you think about some recent issues in Calgary, there is a common thread. Issues like public art where you were called a lynch mob.

The plight of Midfield Park residents who were told the city had a plan for them - but then didn't. And the latest flip-flop concerning outrageous water bills.

The common thread in all of these instances is Leadership. Calgary needs a strong, mature, collaborative, consensus builder at City Hall. Bill Smith is that kind of leader

 

 

Hear Bill Smith's comments on the Midfield Park evictions

I came down to Midfield Park today to see what is actually going on. It truly made me sad to see what is going on here.

This is NOT the way we treat people.

You need to speak out. You need to help us here. You need to call your Councillor. You need to call the Mayor's office.

We need to give these people a FAIR deal.

We need to give them what their properties are worth.

In the past 7 years we’ve seen our property taxes skyrocket by 51 per cent, we’ve seen City spending rise dramatically and we’ve seen a significant increase in crime in every quadrant of Calgary because of the opioid crisis and economy. All this in a climate where businesses have closed their doors, thousands of jobs have disappeared and downtown office towers sit empty.
