GRACE YAN PRESS RELEASE
MAYOR CANDIDACY ANNOUNCEMENT
I am standing for Mayor of the City of Calgary. It is my belief that public service is a responsibility that we all share and we should all be willing to contribute our time and best effort toward the well-being of the community in which we live, work, and play. Mohammed Ali said it well, "Service to others is the rent you pay on earth."
Having lived in the City of Calgary for over 40 years, and having worked in the business sector for 20-plus years, I am aware of the needs of the community, the resources available and am aware of the public concerns that face our city. My service to our community began 20 years ago sitting on various boards, having achieved one of the Distinctive Women of Canada, Women of Inspiration – Inspire Award and Mount Royal Alumni Achievement Award Nominee.
My commitment is to serve the citizens of our great city and contribute to its growth and prosperity; I will support public safety, encourage the continued improvements of city infrastructure, support initiatives of arts and entertainment, and encourage new economic development while supporting our local business. I would like to work on improving communication and transparency between the city administration and the citizens of Calgary.
With respect, grace and humility I pledge to help the citizens of Calgary by promising to work wherever and whenever possible to keep Calgary the best city to live, work, learn and play. I have traveled the globe and from all of this, I have developed an image of Calgary as fulfilling a noble and resilient role as the defender of freedom and growth in a challenging time - and of the people of Calgary as confident, courageous and persevering. It is with this image that I begin my campaign.
Please email me at [email protected] if you have questions or comments. I look forward to hearing from you and remember to vote on October 18, 2021. Thank you.
