Gloucester-Southgate, Hear Me Out!

I Am Not A "Politician"..

You can call me Alek, in 1991, I was a war baby in Bosnia, now I am a 1st generation Canadian, running for Ottawa City Council! I am a straight shooter, with a passion for people & communities. While we have differences, we all share far more similarities & I strive for a safer South Ottawa - while continuing our inclusive tradition.

I want to be the collective voice of Gloucester-Southgate & work towards an even better Ottawa region!

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. 

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. 

The average Canadian makes $38,000, 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.

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!

As a strong advocate for equal opportunity, I want my office staff to reflect the diverse make-up of Gloucester-Southgate.

South Ottawa has traditionally been our most multicultural community & my "inclusive approach" will result in a better engaged Ottawa.

Revolutionizing the Role: Staying Authentic!

Ottawa may be split into 23 individual wards, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King however, "What affects one directly, affects all indirectly!".

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.
