Dear Ward 2 Residents & Business Owners,
Welcome to my website.
My name is Joe Magliocca and I want to be your City Council member for Ward 2 and am seeking election in the upcoming October, 2013 Civic Election.
You might recall, I ran last election against Gord Lowe and finished a close second. It was a very close race and I received 8,210 votes. In the last election I was applying for a job and I am once again. I understand very clearly that you are my employer and during this interview process you need to know my intentions, credentials and what I feel is important to our area.
I am a proud Calgarian and moved here several years ago, like many of you because of the what Calgary and Alberta offers and represents. I have run successful businesses managed budgets and managed employees, I have become increasingly disillusioned with how City Hall treats Calgarians as an ATM machine. I am very concerned at how our city council is poorly managing the Corporation called the City of Calgary. I am married to Carol and have two teenage girls and like your family our family live within our means.
My reputation is that of a person committed to making Calgary a better place to live, work and raise a family. Through improved planning, better management of our hard earned tax dollars and some win-win solutions to the long term problem that we call traffic, this is achievable. My job is to be your representative to City Hall, not the other way around.
I realize that I am applying for a job and you want to know as much about me as possible. So Look at my bio and my platform.
Also, it is no secret; how a candidate operates their campaign is exactly how they will serve their constituents. I believe that open dialogue is critical and asking questions is key. I have proven this since I started this campaign.
Whether it be debates on traffic, transit or taxes… I will represent you first. I have been listening with my team at the doors, on the phones and via your mail in comments. That is how I have run my campaign and that is how I will work for you.
MY PLEDGE TO YOU IS AS FOLLOWS:
- My office will return all calls to the City Hall office for my Ward in a prompt manner.
- My Office will promptly return all e-mails to the City Hall office for my Ward.
- I will not vote on major issues without consulting the Ward.
- I will have monthly meetings in the ward to gauge your views.
- I will door-knock the doors of my constituents throughout the term and not just at election time.
