Councillor Joe Magliocca was elected to Calgary City Council representing Ward 2 in October 2013. The communities in Ward 2 following the redistribution include Arbour Lake, Citadel, Evanston, Hamptons, Hawkwood, Kincora, Nolan Hill, Ranchlands, Sage Hill and Sherwood.
Joe is married to his wife Carol, and they have two daughters. Living in the Hamptons since 1999, the family’s strong community ties has given him a personal connection to the community and first-hand knowledge on how best to represent and serve all of Ward 2. Prior to being elected to Calgary City Council, Joe served his community as the president of the Hamptons Community Association.
Joe has also had significant experience in the private sector where he owned and operated numerous small businesses in the construction and airline industry. This private sector experience has given Joe a strong understanding of the importance of having a business friendly environment in Calgary, meaning low taxes, minimal red tape and good infrastructure.
Since being elected to City Council in 2013, Joe has been a strong advocate for all communities in Ward 2 which includes fighting for better transportation infrastructure, public transit, parks, recreational opportunities and efficient and effective community services. Joe also has a consistent record of fighting for lower property taxes and service fees. Joe believes that by running a more efficient government, Calgarians can have both better services and lower taxes.
