Johnny Walker run­ning for Ed­son Town Coun­cil

The McLeod River Post - - Elections 2017 -

Fel­low Ed­son res­i­dents,

With great en­thu­si­asm I am of­fi­cially an­nounc­ing my can­di­dacy for Ed­son town coun­cil. You may re­mem­ber me from the last mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion when we made na­tional news. Due to a dif­fer­ence of only a few votes, the sixth and fi­nal coun­cil po­si­tion had to be de­cided in an Ed­mon­ton court­room. After the first re­count I was sworn in to coun­cil, and for a very brief pe­riod, got to rep­re­sent Ed­son as an elected of­fi­cial. If you knew me be­fore that, it was likely from our lo­cal ra­dio sta­tion where I worked for three years as the morn­ing show co-host. If you still don’t know me, I en­cour­age you to send me an email so we can meet and get to know each other.

If elected, I will en­sure ev­ery coun­cil de­ci­sion is made with the com­mon good in mind. I have no spe­cific per­sonal agenda which means I will not serve one spe­cific group but rather con­sider all is­sues brought be­fore coun­cil and pri­or­i­tize them ac­cord­ing to what best serves Ed­son as a whole. I am con­fi­dent I can help align peo­ple with dif­fer­ing opin­ions in or­der to im­prove the ef­fi­ciency of coun­cil. That means less time wasted on per­sonal quar­rel­ing and more time fo­cus­ing on the is­sues af­fect­ing you and your fam­ily.

I care deeply for Ed­son, its peo­ple and our qual­ity of life. I be­lieve we are a great com­mu­nity but have the po­ten­tial to im­prove. Con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment is fun­da­men­tal in business and it should be fun­da­men­tal in gov­ern­ment too. I will al­ways strive for con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment on coun­cil so we can make Ed­son even bet­ter than it al­ready is. My ul­ti­mate goal is to make ev­ery Ed­son res­i­dent ap­pre­ci­ate liv­ing in our com­mu­nity as much as I do.

Please con­tact me if you would like to meet or have any ques­tions.
