You can call me Alek, in 1991, I was a war baby, now I am a 1st generation Canadian, running for Ottawa City Council! I have never worked with political parties or groups, I made my impact across the globe.
My experiences involved collaborating with everyone from Embassies/Ambassadors all the way to National Police Forces.
The way I see it is, if I can make an impact across the ocean, I can certainly make an impact here at home!
I did not register to run for City Council just to participate in the democratic process, I am running to get us back on track, in the right direction!
I value hard earned dollars, which is why I am self-funding my campaign, instead I ask folks make donations payable to charities in need!
Your Next City Councillor: Ward 10 - Gloucester-Southgate
Revolutionizing the Role: Breaking Barriers!
I will set aside 25% of my +$100,000 Sunshine List-salary each year towards a grant system, which shall facilitate the rise of aspiring change leaders, across Ottawa.
The average Canadian makes $40,000, when you take into consideration the benefits that come with being a City Councillor, I believe a +$100,000 salary to be in excess of my needs.
In life the opportunity to open the door, for someone you believe in, it is a privilege to be able to do that & I hope I have that privilege for the next 4 years.
Revolutionizing the Role: Respecting Diversity!
I had a chance to talk with Toronto Raptors President Masai Ujiri, we agreed that perspectives matter & people should dream big!
South Ottawa has traditionally been our most multicultural community & my "promote growth from within" strategy will result in a better engaged Ottawa.
Revolutionizing the Role: Staying Authentic!
An ear for Ottawa means everyone gets heard, I will work very closely with Municipal/Provincial officials, for a better Gloucester-Southgate & Ottawa.
I promise to stay honest & remain transparent, I am not a "politician", what you see is what you get with me.
