Default I work for Mayor Nenshi, ask me anything!

UPDATE: As of February 25th, 2015 I have left the Mayor's Office. I have persuaded Communication Advisor to the Mayor Daorcey to take over. Be nice to him.

--

I work for our fair Mayor as an advisor on policy issues ranging from urban planning and development to transportation, as well as an array of many different issues.

I jump in on a variety of threads on city issues to discuss and answer questions about some of the things going on at the City of Calgary. I thought I'd start this thread for anyone who had any questions or wanted discussion on the Mayor, what his plans are, what's going on with various municipal issues, the election campaign - whatever. I'll try and answer any and all questions to the best of my ability. If I can't find an answer for you, I'll try and find out and reply.

FYI - if you've been curious what the heck the Mayor's been doing over the past few years, check out this report card on various City issues and his priorities:

Mr Bur--err, I mean Nenshi, your campaign seems to have the momentum of a runaway freight train. Why are you so popular?

Ah - terrific question. I will only answer campaign-related questions off hours in my own time as volunteer. On the campaign I will again be helping lead the development of the platform.

Can you get a decent alderman for us down in Ward 13?

Ahh good. Hate to see any elected official get in hot water over things like this.

Rick's an interesting guy to chat to - he's been a lot more focused on Provincial politics of late though. Not enough Peace Bridges to talk about I guess. It's Markusoff you have to watch out for.

Can you please provide more detail as to why the city is so reluctant to increase the number of cab licenses?

If you cannot provide a reasonable answer to this, please out the Alderperson / member (s) who are on the take from the various cab companies in the city.

Does Nenshi ever get the urge to punch John Mar in the pills for asking stupid questions? Because if he didn't, he has more self control than me.

How frustrating is it working with a bunch of councilors that appear to either not care or are worried about their own image to do anything?

Mar is an idiot
Druh is an air head
Chabot talks without ever saying anything

Indeed, we will be releasing the Mayor's Office ethical guidelines for handling everyday work vs. the campaign in the coming months so that people know how we plan on conducting ourselves (as most in the office will be actively volunteering on the campaign as well).

if anything deserves an answer, it's this. does the city not realize that they're actively encouraging people to drink and drive when it's virtually impossible to get a cab on a weekend or holiday?
