Sunday Adeleye has lived in Airdrie for more than two years. The power engineer says he is running for council because of his passion to serve the people of Airdrie. He hopes to investigate the possibility of providing incentives that make Airdrie a desirable place to live.
- Why are you running for office?
I want to be a representation of inclusivity in our government and ensure every member, in every category, of all cultures and communities represented, is carried along in our planning as
we grow as a city.
- How will you help to make Airdrie a better place to live, work and play?
Since I’ve been in Airdrie, I’ve noticed one of our strengths is our population. As we
continue to grow it’s important for us to retain those who have come to live and work
here. I also plan to advocate for affordable senior housing, as well as a reliable
transportation system that connects Airdrie to its neighbours and vise-versa. We need to
look at additional indoor recreation spaces. These spaces will help strengthen social
networks and connections, foster healthier communities and give people more options
on places within the city to play and recharge.
- What is the most important issue in this election and how do you plan to address it?
I believe inclusive representation of every community and culture represented in our city
is of utmost importance. Making sure everyone is included in the planning of our great
city is of great value to our continued growth.
- How do you plan to be transparent and accountable to your constituents?
Accountability and transparency are part of my development. I will make sure policies and
procedures are followed to the letter. I also subscribe to having an open-door policy that
will continue to breed trust between myself, my colleagues and with all constituents.
- Why should residents vote for you?
I believe Airdronians should vote for me if they want good representation of everyone in
our city. I want to be a symbol of inclusivity by bringing a holistic approach to making
sure everyone has equal access to opportunities and resources regardless of culture,
gender, age etc. Vote for me to make sure Airdrie continues to be a conductive and
welcoming city for all.
