SAMANNTHA'S COMMITMENT TO YOU

When I ran in 2017, I made commitments to residents.  I’m proud to say that I made good on almost all of them.

Now, in 2021, I remain determined to continue to fulfill my promises to you –

the residents I work for. 

 

I AM COMMITTED TO CONTINUE TO:

  • reflect your input in my decisions

  • always treat you with honesty, integrity, and respect

  • make financial decisions in a fiscally prudent manner – always remembering that it is your tax dollars I am spending

  • inform you of my decisions and my rationale for making those decisions, both during council meetings and in my email updates

  • pursue strong county-wide gravel policy

  • advocate for a voters’ list

  • advocate for a finance/audit committee to provide financial oversight and to evaluate the effectiveness of the County’s expenditures and operations

  • not take campaign contributions from anyone seeking to benefit directly from Council decisions in the next four years

  • not be intimidated or back down on issues that compromise what I believe are critically important to this community and the County

During my first term, other issues emerged that I am equally committed to pursuing in my second term on Rocky View’s Council.

 

MY NEW COMMITMENTS ARE TO:

  • advocate for improved public engagement processes, including improved IT solutions so stakeholders can participate in public hearings remotely

  • advocate to reinstate advertising in local newspapers

  • pursue funding for third-party reviews of key technical studies in contentious development applications

  • work towards having the County take a much more pro-active approach to supporting our agricultural community

  • support initiatives to ensure that new development pays its costs, such as improved off-site levies
