I am a firm believer in the quote, “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. I personally prefer to spend my time working on projects that are more valuable and serviceable to our Edmontonians, that will not only help our quality of life, but living situation. We are currently living in a time where COVID-19 is taking a toll on our lives. People are losing their jobs. People are struggling to make payments, living pay cheque to pay cheque. This is one of the reasons why I voted against the reduction of speed limits going from 50km/hr to 40km/hr. There are [...]
The inner-mechanics of a city run smoothly when they have the right, qualified technicians doing the work and ensuring it is managed properly. This means that for every industry of work, there should be a management chain. One top supervisor, one manager per department, a couple of great admins, and one group of front-line staff per department. There is no need for a bloated middle-management.

Edmonton Audit Report You have probably seen the most recent audit report by now, with the most recent recommendation to reduce costs by cutting management positions. I will be up front: I disagree with issuing a random number of job cuts without looking at the consequences; that is just plain reckless. By pursuing this motion, Council and Administration are only showing Edmontonians that they fail to understand how our corporation works and how the business of the city and its employees transact. In my opinion, right-sizing Administration is not about cutting jobs, but about getting the greatest value from the organization. [...]
