What is the biggest challenge your Ward faces? What policy solutions would you seek if elected?
The biggest challenge in my Ward 7 is Total lack of trust of the community for Politicians, Local (Councilors), Provincial (MLA) and Federal(MP). My solutions: I will restore the trust between Local Politicians and my Community. My Political work will be based on practical, constructive, well informed and effective Action. I will be the first an available politician for the public. I will try to show my community that they can trust me, believe in me, and have a hope in me. As the Councillor I will defend my citizens against high tax increases. I will make sure that the all financial transactions of the City of Edmonton will always be fair. I will motivate my fellow citizens to take on active part in social, political & spiritual community life.

How will you help Edmonton become a greener / more environmentally friendly city?
I want build community, which other community in Canada can only dream about. Yes! Green Community! Easy access to parks, playgrounds for children and adults, sports centers and swimming pools. Everything belongs to the community, will remain with the community. As a local politician, my duty will be to preserve well of our green and human environment, furnishing every home in Edmonton with solar panels.

How will you strengthen Edmonton’s local economy and support our city’s independent, locally-owned businesses?
The True Reconstruction of the social – Economic policy. I will defend my citizens against high tax increases! I will encourage my citizens and business owners to active mutual cooperation, efficient, honest public service. I will make friends with member of the provincial, federal government & business owners. Using a network of free services. STRONG ECONOMY: Development through employment. Without a strong and efficient community will not be prosperous society. TAX credits for Entrepreneurs for minimum 2 years for every new one job. One of the most important factors in determining the budget is to determine not to exceed the Budget deficit. AS a Councillor I will be helped to investors, who want invest in our community by speeding up the procedures and stop blackmailing the investors. I believe that the City Administration also has a lot to be desired and is not fully prepared for the challenges of modern society. New reorganization of City Administration. I will seek to ensure that financial institutions & banks in our Ward 7 and Edmonton, were more favorable and accessible to the entrepreneurs and individual citizens.The creation of favorable conditions for the entrepreneurs of their own, will cause the others start to attach them.

How will you make this a more inclusive city and support Edmonton’s marginalized communities?
I want to be a guarantee of stability, development and quality of life for all members of my community and citizens of Edmonton. The most important problems of our community is unemployment, then wide zone of poverty and housing crisis. To avoid these threats we must properly use such factors as – employment. WE must develop long – term policy of combating unemployment, encouraging Entrepreneurs to invest in our community, and will result in improvement in the labor market. The second important problem in our community is negative demographic process – the decrease in births among successive generations of young people, difficult job market, low social benefits for single people and for Family, not friendly social policy, difficult living conditions, new easy open federal immigration policy for refugees. Much larger employment can solve most of the problems of the community. For beginning I will create Mini & Tiny Housing Development Program. No home rent an apartment deteriorating and threatens the quality of life and the personal or family stability. ALWAYS CAN BE ENOUGH MONEY for everything under one condition, that we will not be wasting and we will not steal public money.
