I owe Calgary a great deal and I am ready to pay back by being the most diligent, hard working Councillor.
— Art Johnston

I am running to bring both stability and experience to City Hall, I will work to ensure order in council meetings without the support of a third party. Expediting Council procedures and saving tax payer dollars.

My time served in the Alberta Legislature as an M.L.A, has provided a wealth of experience on items such as, budget and infrastructure along with health and social issues.  

I have also served for six years as the Chair of the Social Care Facilities Review Committee which has provided the opportunity to travel the province of Alberta to inspect facilities and observe the levels of care being given.

Working closely with those in charge of providing for Alberta's youth, I will ensure Education and child welfare are top of mind at City Hall.


A MESSAGE FROM ART...

I have lived in Ward 13 for 32 years, during that time I have served on the Shawnessy Community Association, coached minor hockey leagues and volunteered on various other community-centric initiatives. Being deeply involved in the community while working full-time as part of the Calgary Police Service, allowed me to interact with the citizens of Calgary in a proactive way; teaching crime prevention and gaining a more visceral understanding of the various people and backgrounds that make our city the great place it is to live and play.

Calgary has always been my home base, even when stationed in Germany, Cyprus and throughout Canada, Calgary was home. My children were born and raised here. They attended schools in Ward 13, providing me with a solid understanding of the issues we were facing and still face providing our children with a quality education. I will work tirelessly with all representatives in the educational sector to ensure our children have the resources they need for an education that will best prepare them to take on the future.


Art has already served our country and community for over 35 years.
