What goals are your representatives working towards achieving in 2012?
A new year brings many things: new milestones, anniversaries, and opportunities to reflect on the year that was while looking ahead at what can be achieved in the coming 12 months.
As we move into the year 2012, Calgary’s city council will have the chance to focus on a wide array of projects that will hopefully match the productivity they achieved in 2011. In the spirit of the season, The Calgary Journal asked each of the city’s 14 aldermen what their New Year’s resolutions are for their wards, as well as any personal goals they have set for themselves.
As befitting a city as diverse and quickly growing as Calgary is, the answers were incredibly wide-ranging, and makes us hopeful that they can indeed be achieved in the coming year.

The Calgary Journal was unable to reach Ward 8 Ald. John Mar for a response despite numerous attempts to contact him.
